Postdoctoral researcher in experimental fluid dynamics in Zürich

Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.


100%, Zurich, temporary

The research in the newly established group examines both fundamental and applied questions in various small-​scale multiphase fluid phenomena, such as bubble and droplet dynamics and the resulting fast flows. One of our key objectives is to control bubble oscillations to exploit their energy-​focusing characteristics. We also develop experimental techniques to observe and characterise high-​speed multiphase fluid phenomena optically and acoustically. The group is part of the , which pursues a broad range of experimental, numerical and theoretical research efforts in a friendly and inclusive environment with state-of-the-art infrastructure.

Job description

We seek to appoint a motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on a variety of small-scale fluid dynamic experiments involving cavitation, bubble oscillations and droplets using high-speed acoustic and optical measurement instrumentation. The position offers an opportunity to participate in building a new experimental lab, to independently design and supervise student projects, and to work in a highly interdisciplinary and dynamic environment.

Starting date: 1 September 2020, or earlier. Negotiable.

Duration of appointment: 2 years. There is a possibility for extension.

Your profile

Candidates for this position should have a PhD in fluid dynamics or in a similar field with experience in experimental research. You should be enthusiastic about leveraging experimental observations to develop predictive models for interesting and challenging fluid problems. You should be independent, motivated, creative and willing to take an active part in the building of a new group. The ability for both independent and collaborative work will be a great asset.
