MHD Modelling PhD-School is a practical hands-on course on simulation of complex liquid metal magnetohydrodynamics processes. The main goal of participants will be to learn to work with open-source software, modifying code and applying it to specific systems with liquid metal flow in electromagnetic field.
The main topics are:
- Electromagnetic mixing and pumping;
- Electromagnetic semi-levitation and free surface dynamics;
- Electrovortical flows;
- Bubbly flows in magnetic field.
The course has three parts:
- lectures covering topics from modern experimental techniques to promising MHD applications, as well as introduction to simulation tools and methods;
- numerical modelling of MHD phenomena using both commercial (ANSYS) and open-source (OpenFOAM, ElmerFEM, getDP, EOF-Library) software;
- laboratory experiments for demonstration and numerical model validation.
After the introductory lectures participants will be assigned small projects within the abovementioned topics and will present the results at the end of the course.

(from Andre Giesecke, HZDR, Germany )
The Institute of Fluid Dynamics at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR, https://www.hzdr.de) invites for applications for a PhD position in the field of experimental fluid dynamics.
The research tasks involve experiments on precessing fluid flows and are essential for the preparation of the large scale dynamo currently under construction at HZDR.
The PhD student will be responsible for running regular experiments at the water precession experiment and will conduct he related measurements. The tasks include an upgrade of the experiment and the involvement in the preparation of the forthcoming dynamo experiments. Intensive cooperation is mandatory with the project partners at Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum (Prof. R. Grauer), where related numerical models are conducted.
The position will be available from 1 July 2019. The employment contract is limited to three years.
- Diploma or M.Sc in physics/mechanical engineering or related subjects with very good marks and a profound background in fluid dynamics and/or magnetohydrodynamics
- experience in the operation of experiments, preferably in the field of fluid dynamics
- willingness for close cooperation with project partners from Universitaet Bochum who will conduct related numerical studies (includes travel to Bochum 1-2 times a year)
- scientific approach to research questions, self-dependent working style and excellent written and oral communication skills in English
- high scientific professional networking as well as scientific excellence
- internationality and diversity
- interesting and diverse tasks, flexible working hours, salary based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund
- equality of opportunity and family-friendly structures, corporate health management
- attractive work and research terms in a highly motivated team
Kindly submit your completed application (including cover letter, CV, diplomas/transcripts, etc.) by 30 April 2019 online via https://www.hzdr.de/db/Cms?pNid=490&pOid=57754&pContLang=en
