With Dr. Nader Masmoudi

The Division of Science, Mathematics department at New York University Abu Dhabi is inviting applications for fully-funded research scientist positions in the following areas:

  • Stability of 2D/3D crowd motion and multi-level building evacuation using mean-field-type games
  • Stability of singularity formation in fluid systems
  • Nonlinear instabilities and transition thresholds in Couette flow
  • Wave turbulence
  • Stability in geophysical fluids and plasmas physics

Candidates must hold a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Physics/Mechanical Engineering with demonstrated expertise in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics and stability analysis. At least five years of post PhD research experience in the field is required. PhD holders with a strong publication record, a background in computational fluid dynamics, laminar to turbulence transition, and vortex dynamics are encouraged to apply. Experience in high-performance computing is required.
