Institut für Geometrie und Praktische Mathematik

A new research group on CFD, the SFB 1580 "Modulation of flow and fluid-structure interaction at airplane wings" will be established at the Technical University of Aachen in January 1997. For a project on grid generation we have an open position (Ph Studentship) for a canditate with background in mathematics or computer science (Master/Diplom).

The successfull candidate will design and implement an algorithm for the generation of unstructured hexahedral element meshes that will be used in other projects for the calculation of the flowfield at wings. She / he is expected to have good programming skills, interest in geometric algorithms, background in numerical algorithms and willingness to cooperate with other members of the research group. Knowledge in multiscale concepts (wavelets) and cfd would be a plus.

The salary is according to Bat II/2. Please forward resumes to:
