Sweden is a favourite destination for academics. Here's a breakdown of the most common Swedish academic jobs and their salaries.
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The research in the project aims to overcome the failure of Computational Fluid Dynamics to tackle one of the central unsolved fluid physics problems, namely predicting the sensitive flow physics associated with laminar-turbulent transition and flow separation. The student will address this shortcoming and develop and utilize computational methods that are able to predict, understand and control the sensitive interplay between laminar-turbulent transition and flow separation in boundary layers on wings and other aerodynamic bodies. For these sensitive flows there is a lack of understanding of the flow physics and few computational prediction capabilities exist. Here we will perform simulations that give completely new possibilities to visualize, understand and control such flows, including the possibility to compute and harness the flow sensitivities. We will tackle these outstanding flow and turbulence problem using the new possibilities enabled by multi-peta scale super computing.
