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) ( 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,, +44(0)7557425329).
