Project Assistant and Post-doc positions under Airbus Project

Date: July 10, 2015

This project is closed


TIFR-CAM invites applications for project assistant and post-doc positions for the following areas.

Flow control: This project involves developing numerical methods and codes to perform flow control using feedback theory for Navier-Stokes equations. You will develop finite element codes for solving Navier-Stokes equations and implement feedback control strategies into them.

Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) Methods: This project involves developing novel methods and software based on discontinuous Galerkin approach for compressible flows and on moving grids in one and two dimensions.

Both projects require advanced level of computing skills.

Required qualitifications

  • For Project assistant position: Must have masters degree in mathematics or engineering
  • For Postdoc position: Must have PhD degree in mathematics or engineering

Desirable background

    • Finite element methods for incompressible/compressible Navier-Stokes equations, DG methods, feedback control theory
    • Experience in writing finite volume or FEM programs in fortran/C/C++/python
    • Very good knowledge of Unix and/or GNU/Linux
    • Experience in working with Fenics finite element library
    • Experience in working with deal.II finite element library


    The position will be initially given for one year with possibility of extending it for another year based on performance. Shared accommodation will be provided subject to its availability,
    otherwise, selected candidates are entitled for HRA @ 30% of Stipend/Fellowship.

    How to apply

    Please send your latest CV along with preprints of papers or project reports demonstrating your computational skills to praveen -at- math [dot] tifrbng [dot] res [dot] in . You must also provide names of two references who can give recommendation regarding your qualifications and work experience.
