Post-Doctoral Associate in the Center on Stability, Instability and Turbulence (SITE) 
NYU Abu Dhabi 

The research center on stability, instability and weak turbulence at New York University Abu Dhabi is inviting applications for fully-funded postdoctoral research associate positions in the following areas: 
  • Stability of 2D/3D crowd motion and multi-level building evacuation using mean-field-type games. 
  • Stability of singularity formation in fluid systems. 
  • Nonlinear instabilities and transition thresholds in Couette flow 
  • Wave turbulence 
  • Stability in geophysical fluids and plasmas physics 
The research center on stability, instability and turbulence (SITE) is highly interdisciplinary. SITE aims to develop novel enabling technology on hydrodynamic stability analysis that has applications in the study of the development of singularities, the long-time behavior of complex systems, the formation of spatial patterns, the transition between stability and instability, and the first steps of transition towards turbulence that appear in several disciplines across science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and innovation. 

Candidates must hold (or be close to completing) a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or a related field. PhD holders with a strong publication record, a background in singularity formation, 3D deep strategic learning, and experience with experimental and computational mean-field-type game theory are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted immediately. To be considered, all applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests, representative publications and provide three recommendation letters to:
The anticipated appointment starting date is Summer 2022 and applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

The Principal Investigators of SITE are: Nader Masmoudi, Tej-eddine Ghoul, Tembine Hamidou, Francesco Paparella, Pierre Germain, and Jun Zhang. More details can be found at SITE website:
