Description

Instituto de Aeronáutica e Espaço (IAE) and Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA), at the city of São José dos Campos, Brazil, welcome applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in the project "Aerothermodynamic Analysis of Hypersonic Flows with Applications in Atmospheric Reentry Procedure". The fellowship is funded by Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP), in the context of the Center for Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry, CEPID–CeMEAI. The present project concerns numerical simulations of hypersonic reactive flows in thermal non-equilibrium. Main objectives of the work to be performed are twofold: to address the effects of bulk viscosity in hypersonic simulations, particularly for Mars entry-type flows, and to develop the capability to simulate hypersonic flows involving coupled radiative and convective heat transfer mechanisms. The position is initially offered for 1 year with possible reappointment. The researcher will work under the supervision of Prof. Azevedo at IAE and ITA. Applicants must have received a doctorate in Applied Mathematics, Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, or related discipline, within the last 5 years. Selection criteria require demonstrated research ability in CFD, with a strong background in the physical, mathematical and computational aspects of numerical simulation of hypersonic flows, commitment to collaborative research, and excellent verbal and written skills. To apply, please e-mail (only PDF files) the following items to joaoluiz.azevedo@gmail.com until 4 Dec. 2020: 1. Letter of interest, with full contact information and citizenship/immigration status, concisely addressing the research themes above; 2. Full CV; 3. Cover letter with names and contact information for 3 references (no letters please). Indicate “CEPID Postdoc” in the subject field.
