Multiple postdoc and PhD positions are open at Tsinghua University to investigate
debris flow and sediment transport in fluvial and coastal environments through a
multiscale approach integrating experiments, simulations, and theory. The research
will take place at Tsinghua University’s Shenzhen International Graduate School
(SIGS), located in Shenzhen, China, and is partly sponsored by NSFC and Tsinghua
SIGS’s scientific research startup funds.
Successful applicants will join a team managed by Dr. Lu Jing, Assistant Professor in
the Institute for Ocean Engineering, SIGS, Tsinghua University. The research theme
of Lu’s group is “Multi-Scale Mechanics for Earth and its Environment”, in line
with the UN’s and China’s sustainable development goals. Their recent focus is on
the flow and transport mechanics of granular materials from micro to macro scales,
aiming at enhanced strategies for geohazard mitigation and sediment management.
Candidates having excellent experimental (micro-CT, RIMS, PIV/PTV), numerical
(DEM-CFD/LBM, SPH, MPM, AI-aided methods), and/or theoretical (geomechanics,
rheology, fluid dynamics) skills are sought. The positions are open to any citizenship
and all qualified applicants are welcome.
