Additional Job Posting Information:

Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental Fluid Dynamics for the Applied Turbulence and Land-Atmosphere Systems (ATLAS) group in Mechanical Engineering. We work in the following general areas (and at their intersections):
  • Development of high-resolution, low-cost, and compact nanoscale sensing platforms that quantify velocity, temperature, humidity, and their turbulent fluxes at unprecedented scales.
  • Near-surface turbulent measurements over various landforms, sites, and thermal stabilities to validate and improve model parametrizations.
  • Design and characterization of a new environmental flow facility that uses an active grid with individually controlled paddles to impart coherent structures in time and space that echo relevant field observations.
As a postdoc in our new and growing group, you will have significant autonomy to shape your own research direction and a major impact in shaping the lab’s culture. Travel and professional development support will be provided, and mentored teaching opportunities available if desired. Professional development opportunities will also be available through the University of Houston Postdoctoral Fellows Association (UHPFA).

This position is full-time with an initial term appointment of one year, and renewable for a second year depending on satisfactory performance. The start date is negotiable with a preference to fill the position by Fall 2024. The position will remain open until filled.
