Job description

The Postdoctoral Researcher will work with senior NREL researchers in developing overset methods for high-fidelity time-domain simulations of wind farms. The researcher will be part of a large multi-lab team that has funding through the DOE Office of Science/NNSA ExaWind Exascale Computing Project and the DOE Wind Energy Technologies Office Atmosphere to electrons project. Primary duties will be in establishing existing overset methods, and developing new methods, where simulations are performed with the open-source Nalu-Wind computational fluid dynamics code and the OpenFAST turbine simulation code. Nalu-Wind is an unstructured-grid incompressible-flow (low-Mach number) code.
