The Multiphase Flow Sciences (MFS) Team at National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) invites outstanding candidates to apply for a postdoctoral position to develop and implement algorithms for computational fluid dynamics-discrete element method (CFD-DEM) on exascale, high performance computers. This opening is available im immediately, but there is flexibility in start dates.

The ideal candidate will hold a PhD degree in computer science, mathematics, or engineering and have experience in CFD, DEM, and/or molecular dynamics (MD) code development. Exceptional postmasters candidates will also be considered for this position.  Programming expertise in C++, Fortran, C, or another programming language is required.  Experience with parallel computing, including MPI and OpenMP is required.  Familiarity with MFIX ( and multi-phase flow is not required.

The specific tasks include: code profiling, algorithm development and implementation, writing reports/papers and making presentations to re report the results of the research. The development team is geographically disperse making excellent communication skills a must.

NETL, part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory system, is owned and operated by the DOE. NETL supports the DOE mission to advance the energy security of the United States. NETL implements a broad spectrum of energy and environmental research and development programs that will return benefits for generations to come.  The MFS Team at NETL is a leader in the design of numerical modeling of gas-solids flows and simulations of devices of interest to DOE.  DOE. The job location is at Morgantown, West Virginia ( research campus of NETL.
