Master studentships in modelling of microflow and biofilm growth

Country : Canada

Website :


Based on further funding confirmation, we are seeking outstanding candidates to undertake cutting-edge research on computational sustainability and environmental analytics. This is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic and ambitious researchers to use state-of-the-art approaches to make an impact in a fast-moving field of research.
The student will be a member of the CAIP Research Chair team at Athabasca University, Alberta, Canada. The objective of the CAIP program is to use a multidisciplinary and multi-scale analysis by integrating modeling of biogeochemical and hydrological processes. The student will develop a model of integrated lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) and individual-based model (iBM) for modelling organic matter degradation by microorganisms in porous media and validation experiments.
• A Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering, or other closely related fields
• Experience in lattice Boltzmann model or computational fluid dynamics.
• Experience in individual-Based model or molecular dynamics simulations.
• Strong skills and experience with programing languages (C, C++, or Fortran) and coding and ability to design concept of model, algorithms and database
• A record of peer-reviewed scientific publication
• Ability to work independently, self-motivated and to efficiently deliver results on time
• Ability and desire to work in a closely cooperating interdisciplinary team
• A plus in experience of parallel computation, experiments of microflow, and GC-MS.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in both modeling and validation, with experience in conducting model testing and coding. This master studentship is for a period of 2 years.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The selection will begin consideration of applicants on Spetmber 15, 2017; the competition will remain open until suitable candidate is appointed and shortlisted applicants will be informed. How to apply for the position, send an email to Prof Junye Wang at with a detailed CV, transcripts, a cover letter about your interest for the position and rationale for your suitability, and name and address of three referees.
