Dear colleagues,

there is an open PhD Position in Flood Simulation at VRVis, Vienna, 
Austria (details see attachment)

The Centre for Water Resource Systems at the Vienna University of 
Technology offers a PhD position in the field of real-time flood simulation.

In the scope of the Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems 
(http://www.waterresources.at/), we investigate and implement fast 
simulation techniques to support decision making in flood management. 
The resulting engine should support the fast simulation of different 
processes in large-scale scenarios, including river flooding, 
storm-water events, or underground flows. Our approach is to solve the 
underlying hydrodynamic equations on a system of multiple graphics cards 
using the CUDA programming language. The research will be incorporated 
as modules into the Visdom (http://visdom.at) software framework, 
co-developed by the VRVis center for virtual reality and visualization 
(http://vrvis.at/) and the TU. Visdom combines simulation and 
visualization into one tool to support decision making without the need 
for special simulation expertise.

The PhD will be jointly supervised by Prof. Günter Blöschl, Institute of 
Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management, TU Vienna, and Dr. 
Jürgen Waser, VRVis, Vienna. We provide a very stimulating and enjoyable 
working environment in a competitive, internationally oriented research 
institution. We are looking for a motivated young scientist who is 
interested in computational fluid dynamics and flood simulation. 
Salaries are according to the rates of the Austrian Science
foundation for doctorands, paid 14 times per year:

Applicants must have a master in physics, computer graphics, mathematics 
or a similar field and should fulfill most of the following requirements:+
+ Good understanding of the mathematical theory behind fluid dynamics
+ Practical knowledge of numerical schemes to solve partial differential 
+ Good skills in C++ and GPU programming (CUDA)
+ Good knowledge of English in speaking and writing; German is 
appreciated, but not required
+ Tenacity in problem solving and willingness to learn

Your application should include:
+ Curriculum vitae
+ Publication list, including talks, master thesis, projects that are 
available online, etc.
+ Code samples of your previous work
+ Short motivation letter why you apply for this position
+ Letters of recommendation

If you are interested in the position, please apply via e-mail to Jürgen 
Waser (jwaser at vrvis.at). Application deadline is April, 15th 2016. Late 
applications will be considered until the position is filled.

Best wishes,

Eduard Gröller
