PhD Scholarship at CSIRO & Monash

Location: CSIRO, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Closing Date: 31 October 2023
Duration: 3 years
Scholarship Title: Development of physics-constrained reduced order modelling of thermally driven flows

Monash University in conjunction with the CSIRO has an exciting opportunity for a PhD candidate to undertake research on the development of physics-constrained reduced order modelling of thermally driven flows. This fundamental research would enable the rapid computation, sensitivity analysis and robust design in many applications including: energy generation systems; heating, ventilation and cooling; and climate change response under varying levels of future greenhouse gas forcing.

Candidates must have:

  • an outstanding knowledge of mathematics and/or theory of fluid mechanics;
  • programming experience (e.g. python, Julia, C/C++, F90);
  • experience in numerical simulations and/or machine learning.

The successful candidate will be eligible for a top-up scholarship up to $10,000 per year.
Closing date for Australian permanent residents and citizens and NZ citizens is: 31st October 2023.
