Staff member
POSITION: Research Associate - Analytical and Computational Modeling

Applications are invited for an NSF-funded research associate position
in the area of analytical and computational modeling of turbulent
multiphase flows with an application to a marine atmospheric boundary
layer laden with evaporating sea spray. In-depth understanding and
accurate modeling of the interaction between ocean spray and a
turbulent flow under high-wind conditions is essential for improving
forecast accuracy of intensity of hurricanes and severe storms.
The research project will involve developing and implementation of a
mathematical and computational model of a marine atmospheric boundary
layer laden with evaporating sea spray. The model will enable us to
accurately describe the effect of ocean spray on the air-sea exchange
of momentum, heat and moisture in high-wind condition of a tropical cyclone.

Ph.D. Degree either in Atmospheric Sciences, Applied Mathematics,
Physics, Engineering or other relevant field. Prior experience in
theoretical and computational fluid dynamics, turbulence, and
mathematical and CFD modeling. Hands-on background in numerical
methods and programming skills in matlab and/or fortran90.

UNIVERSITY: North Carolina A&T State University is an 1890 land-grant
university and a Carnegie doctoral/research intensive institution with
an enrollment of approximately 11,900 students. Greensboro, a
progressive city centrally located between Washington, DC and Atlanta,
GA, has a population of around 300,000 residents. Well-known for its
quality of life, the area's mix of industry with schools and
universities contributes to its economic and cultural development and diversity.
