PhD Studentship - Development of In-situ Visualisation and Analysis Technology for High-Fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics
Summary: A PhD Studentship is currently available. The project, will involve addition of 'in-situ' visualisation, processing, and analysis technology to PyFR, an open-source high-order massively-parallel CFD platform, as well as its application to solve a range of challenging unsteady flow problems. Candidates should hold, or expect to obtain, an undergraduate degree in a numerate discipline. Previous programming experience is important (ideally Python, C++ and CUDA).
