Research Associate

Title Description Documents Due Date
Post-doctoral opening for an SERB-funded project

We are looking for highly motivated PhD scholars to work on problems in theoretical microhydrodynamics. The position available is a Research Associate-I under auspices of the SERB project titled 'Motion of anisotropic particles in viscoelastic shearing flows: Microstructure, rheology and shear-induced migration'.

Applicants will have to have a strong background in microhydrodynamics, with expertise in  applied mathematics and physics, and published/accepted papers in top-tier Mechanics/physics journals (examples include the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physical Review Fluids, Physical Review Letters, etc). The principal problem will involve use of a spheroidal harmonics framework to determine position-cum-orientation dynamics of an anisotropic particle in a viscoelastic shearing flow as a function of the Deborah number. The results of the analysis and computations will be applied to a range of suspension-related problems including rheology, shear-induced migration, scalar transport and hydrodynamic stability. Motivated candidates will have ample opportunities to work on fundamental problems in other areas of fluid mechanics.

Interested applicants may mail their resume, along with supporting material (papers/preprints) to sganesh@jncasr.ac.in, emuoffice@jncasr.ac.in
