发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Tue Jan 30 21:55:08 2018, 美东)
Computational Biofluidics and Biomechanics Laboratory at Oklahoma State
University ([email protected]) is seeking one highly motivated Ph.D. candidate
to join the group of Prof. Yu Feng in the School of Chemical Engineering in
FALL 2018. The overall goal of Prof. Feng’s group is to make a
significant impact on the medical world and human life by providing well-
posed solutions to realistic pulmonary health problems using numerical
simulations based on interdisciplinary engineering fundamentals. The two
openings are for graduate students interested in developing and applying
advanced computational solutions to multiple biomedical problems involving
inhaled aerosol transport in human respiratory systems and their
translocation into systemic regions, using computational fluid-particle
dynamics (CF-PD) and finite element analysis (FEA). Each Ph.D. candidate
position will be offered a research assistantship. Some research projects
may involve collaborations with the Oklahoma Center for Respiratory and
Infectious Diseases (OCRID). Students with diverse backgrounds are
encouraged to apply.
During his/her Ph.D. study, the successful candidate will:
Focus on teamwork/collaboration, engineering fundamentals, creativity, and
communication development (both written and oral)
Establish novel and realistic computer simulation models that will provide
quantitative data for assessment of inhaled aerosol transport, deposition,
absorption, and translocation in human bodies.
Interact with experimentalists and clinical doctors to validate numerical
models and theoretical findings.
Integrate scientific knowledge on pulmonary disease detection and treatment
from multiple aspects in addition to pure computational research.
Analyze numerical results and findings to generate new insights with
relevance to, but not limited to, pulmonary health risk assessment,
pulmonary drug delivery device optimization, non-invasive pulmonary disease
Contribute to the preparation of scientific publications and project
Meet the admission requirements of the Graduate Program at Oklahoma State
B.S./M.S. in Chemical Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Mechanical
Engineering, or other related engineering/science discipline
Solid background in Partial Different Equations, Transport Phenomena,
Aerosol Science, and Fluid Mechanics.
Keen interest in Numerical Methods and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
High motivation, great enthusiasm, and commitment to research excellence
Good knowledge of FORTRAN, C, and/or C++ programming languages
Good verbal and written English skills
Good commercial CFD code skills for ANSYS CFD/Fluent and mesh generation
tools are preferred
Experience in Lattice-Boltzmann Method (LBM) is preferred
Experience in AutoCAD/Solidworks is preferred
Experience in turbulence and multiphase flow modeling is preferred
Experience in fluid-structure interaction (FSI) modeling is preferred
Experience in parallel programming and high-performance computing is
Knowledge of biology, human anatomy, and physiology, as well as
pharmaceutical industry, is preferred.
The qualified candidate will be offered research assistantship (RA)
that include tuition waiver plus a bi-weekly stipend.
Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and continue until
the position is filled.
