PhD research fellowship: Modeling and simulation of anomalous transport phenomena

Description : PhD research fellowship “Modeling and simulation of anomalous transport phenomena” One PhD research fellowship on “Modeling and simulation of anomalous transport phenomena” is available at the Norwegian University of Science en technology, Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology. The fellowship is within a project financed by SINTEF Energy Research. The objective of the current project is to improve fundamental understanding of anomalous transport phenomena in particle systems. The main focus will be to develop physical models and simulation tools capable of describing anomalous transport phenomena at different scales. A strong modelling-simulation activity coupling is intended in the PhD project. The development of analytical models to describe and analyze the detailed physics of anomalous transport phenomena in engineering application is expected. One and two-dimensional models should be considered. PhD candidates are expected to hold a master’s level degree in a subject relevant for the PhD project and to have a good combination of knowledge and skills in the following areas: physical modelling, mathematical modelling, scientific computing, and programming. The PhD fellowship is limited to 3 years. It is required that the person employed satisfies the requirements for PhD students, participates in the course program of the PhD studies, and finishes the PhD degree within 3 years. Further information about the position may be obtained from Associate Professor Carlos A. Dorao, email: [email protected] or Research Scientist Jana Poplsteinova Jakobsen email: [email protected] Conditions of appointment: PhD students follow code 1017, grade 45 – 51, gross NOK 353 000 to NOK 391 500 per year (before tax). PhD students are normally remunerated at wage level 45. There will be a 2 % deduction to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund from gross salary. Engagement as a PhD candidate is done in accordance with current appointment regulations with supplementary rules in force giving guidelines for scholarship appointments in universities and university colleges. The goal of each of the announced positions is to obtain a PhD degree. Applicants are obliged to engage in an organized PhD training program, and appointment requires approval of the applicant’s plan for a PhD study within three months from the date of commencement. A contract of employment will be set up for the engagement period regulating the rights and duties of the PhD student. The engagement is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants. The positions adhere to the Norwegian Government’s policy of balanced ethnicity, age and gender. Persons with immigrant background and women are encouraged to apply. The application must contain information of educational background and work experience. Copies of transcripts and reference letters should be enclosed. An application inclusive CV, grade transcripts and other enclosures should be sent electronically through http://www.jobbnorge.no, ref.no. IVT-69/08. Preferably, we want the attachments in one file. Application deadline: 24 oktober 2008. http://innsida.ntnu.no/getfile.php/vedlegg/48e1e2f7cdf002.38152720/PhD_EPT_6908_nettopp.doc
