Post doctor in flow mechanics

Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering


KTH is one of Europe's leading technical universities and an important arena for knowledge development. As Sweden's largest university of technical research and education, we gather students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers both natural sciences and all branches of technology as well as architecture, industrial economics, social planning, technical history and philosophy.


The School of Engineering studies the frontline research in a broad field, from research in basic subjects such as physics and mathematics, to technical mechanics with applications in aeronautics and vehicle technology. The school operates and develops the Master of Science in Engineering, Physical Physics and Vehicle Technology, as well as the open program and several master programs.

Linné Flow Center ( ) conducts research in basic flow mechanics at KTH and is one of twenty excellence centers chosen by the Swedish Research Council (VR) in 2006. The center has a vision to be an internationally leading research environment for basic flow mechanics there Innovative research is being created and future research leaders are developing. The center has become one of the internationally leading research groups in flow mechanics.




The project should fit in one of the following areas:


  • Stability and flow control
  • Turbulence and geophysical flow
  • Micro and complex fluids
  • Aero acoustics and compressible flow
  • Heat transfer and reactive flow
  • 'e-science' within flow mechanics


The exact content of the project is not determined. Applicants are invited to contact researchers at Linnaeus FLOW Center ( ) , who will act as project managers, to define a specific research project. A possible one-year extension of the service should be discussed directly with the responsible researcher we centered on.




We are looking for a candidate who has completed his or her doctoral studies (or will be completed soon) within the relevant three years.
