New Position: Postdoc Research Associate in Experimental Heat Transfer

The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics at Drexel University is looking for a well-qualified postdoctoral research associate in the area of experimental heat transfer to work in the Complex Fluids and Multiphase Transport Lab. The position will encompass the analysis, design, construction, and characterization of a prototype alternative dry cooling technology for modern power plants. The candidate will collaborate extensively with industrial partners and manufacturers, as well as mentor graduate students working on thermofluidic system design and characterization. The position is for two years.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on thermal-fluid sciences and possess excellent communication skills. Previous experience in several of the following areas is expected:
• Fundamental heat/mass transfer and transport phenomena
• Thermal-fluid systems design
• Hands-on experimental characterization of heat transfer systems
• Air-cooled heat exchangers
• Phase change materials

The review of applications will begin immediately with a desired start date in July 2016 or earlier. The position will remain open until filled. Interested applicants should email a single PDF file containing a detailed CV, including the contact information for two references, to:
Professor Ying Sun (ysun@coe.drexel.edu) with subject line “Postdoc Position”.
