Doctoral student in fluid mechanics

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Engineering mechanics

We are looking for a highly motivated student with excellent academic background, who is interested in pursuing doctoral research in the area of fluid mechanics. The successful applicant should hold a master's degree with specialization in fluid mechanics and numerical simulations or experimental techniques.

The topic of this PhD project is the study of suspensions of droplets and bubbles in yield-stress fluids by numerical simulations, in close collaboration with experiments done by our collaborators. Many fluids in the industry and in nature are yield-stress fluids, for example, lava flows and mud slides, food products, oil drillings and building products. Investigating the mechanisms by which the system microstructure determines the macroscopic flow properties and vice versa will not only give valuable insights into the nature of these phenomena but will also lead to new ways to model and control these flows.The proposed project is based on highly accurate simulations of multiphase flow systems and in parallel state-of-the-art experiments done by collaborators. The candidates will contribute to develop new numerical tools and analyse theoretical models. The project is supported by the Swedish Research Council.

The successful candidate is expected to join the well known FLOW Graduate School as part of the Bio and Complex Fluid group at the Department of Mechanics. The group is one of several research groups within the PhD Program in Engineering Mechanics. The position will include about 95% research and 5% teaching assistance.

What we offer

Eligibility

To be admitted to postgraduate education (Chapter 7, 39 § högskoleförordningen), the applicant must have basic eligibility in accordance with either of the following:

  • passed a degree at advanced level,

  • in any other way acquired within or outside the country acquired essentially equivalent knowledge.

In addition, PhD candidates in Engineering Mechanics shall be able to speak and write scientific English, and speak English fluently. 

Selection

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work. In the selection of the applicants, the following will be assessed:

  • ability to independently pursue his or her work,
  • ability to collaborate with others,
  • have a professional approach and
  • analyse and work with complex issues.

Previous experience in numerical simulations and theory of fluid mechanics is considered to be an advantage, as well as good skills in numerical analysis or mathematics.

After the qualification requirements, great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities and personal suitability.

Target degree: Doctoral
