June 9-10, 2022: UKMHD2022 meeting

Over the past four decades or so, the annual Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) meeting has become established as the leading national annual gathering for discussing the challenges and opportunities in Astrophysical, Geophysical and Laboratory MHD. This meeting will look to the UK’s researchers and their collaborator’s scientific achievements in the subject.

Sessions will address key research topics investigated by the UK MHD community giving priority to young researchers to present their work. With senior participants from across the country, poster presentations, and informal discussions, this two day meeting will provide you with the opportunity to meet the authors and listen to the research work carried out in various research groups.

21 April 2022 — MHD School 2022

Dear all,

with this email I announce that the MHD school will be held in April and May, 2022.
The program of the school is available at the link MHD School 2022 (eumhd.com)

This course held in English is designed for students, engineers and scientists from industry and research centers who wish to improve their knowledge in the field of applied Magneto-hydrodynamics.

Although the theoretical background of MHD is reviewed, the course is mainly oriented towards the numerical methods and application to industrial processes.

Participants should have a degree in applied mathematics, physics, mechanical engineering, materials science, metallurgy, or chemistry.

Private or group discussions can take place at the end of the lectures, in order to treat more specific problems which the participants may raise

People should register in the webpage.

Best regards,

Abdellah Kharicha

PostDoc Position at Newcastle University 

from Graeme Sarson, Newcastle, UK

Dear colleagues,

We are looking to recruit a postdoc to work with Dr Céline Guervilly and Dr Graeme Sarson on a STFC-funded project on the dynamics of stably-stratified layers in planetary cores. The project concerns double-diffusive convection and will incorporate the effects of rotation, spherical geometry and magnetic fields. The goal is to explain how a stably-stratified layer located at the top of the core shapes the magnetic field observed at the surface of the planet. The position is based at Newcastle University and is funded for three years with a flexible start date.

Applications close 5th April 2022. Further details can be found at:

https://jobs.ncl.ac.uk/job/Newcastle-Research-AssistantAssociate-in-Fluid-Dynamics/766230001/

For informal enquiries, please contact Dr Céline Guervilly (celine.guervilly@newcastle.ac.uk)

Best wishes,

Céline and Graeme

with the deadline for submissions being 31 March 2022. No extensions of
the deadline are planned. Further details of the call are provided in my
email below.

Symposia and Summer Schools are one of IUTAM’s major areas of activity
and means of fulfilling the Union’s goal of promoting the development of
mechanics. It is of utmost importance that IUTAM remain the organizer of
regular scientific meetings on cutting-edge topics in mechanics.
Therefore, I would like to kindly ask you as the Representatives of
Adhering and Affiliated Organizations of IUTAM to help spread
information about the present call for proposals. Your help in
encouraging top researchers in your community to submit high-quality
Symposia/Summer Schools proposals would be greatly appreciated.

Research Fellow Position @Coventry, closing 06/06/2021

 

Applications are invited for the position of Research Fellow in Computational Magnetohydrodynamics sponsored by the Science and Technologies Facilities Council (STFC) (https://stfc.ukri.org). The project is concerned with the development of a comprehensive nonlinear theory of helical magnetorotational instability which could explain the origin of turbulence in hydrodynamically stable astrophysical flows not affected by standard magnetorotational instability.

The successful candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics or Physics with a proven track record of producing a high-quality scientific output.

The Research Fellow will work within the vibrant environment of the Fluid and Complex Systems Research Centre, at Coventry University. The group conducts both fundamental and applied research in the fields of stability, magnetohydrodynamics, turbulence and geophysical fluid dynamics as well as other areas of fluid mechanics. In the REF2014, 84% of the group’s output, as part of the mathematics submission, was deemed ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world-leading’.

The post is fixed term until 31st March 2024. To apply please also include your CV with a publication list. For further information please contact Dr Janis Priede (Coventry University, j.priede@coventry.ac.uk, +44(0)7557425329).
