Postdoctoral positions
Center for Computational Science and
Department of Mathematics
at Tulane University, New Orleans, LA

The Tulane Center for Computational Science has two openings for postdoctoral research positions in computational biological fluid dynamics. The appointments are initially for one year, but renewable for up to three years starting in the fall of 2008. One position will be funded by an NSF Focused Research Group in Mathematics grant that will focus on the dynamics of elastic biostructures in complex fluids. The other position will be funded by an NSF Collaborative Grant in Mathematical Geosciences that will focus on the dynamics of phytoplankton in dissipative vortices. Each project involves the collaboration of computational scientists and experimentalists, and the postdoctoral fellows will have opportunities to spend some time during the summers at experimental labs (FRG – New York University, CMG – University of Maine). Preference will be given to applicants with experience in at least one of the following areas: computational fluid dynamics, viscoelastic fluids, immersed boundary methods, mathematical biology, and scientific computation.

Note that the Focused Research Group is a collaboration of: Lisa Fauci (Tulane), Ricardo Cortez (Tulane), Robert Dillon (Washington State University), Joseph Teran (UCLA), Michael Shelley (New York University) and Jun Zhang (New York University).

Note that the Math Geosciences Group is a collaboration of: Lisa Fauci (Tulane), Peter Jumars (University of Maine), and Lee Karp-Boss (University of Maine).

Interested candidates should send electronic versions of a CV, research description and 2-3 letters of reference to:
