Closure Date* None *
CFD-DEM Group at School of Qilu Transportation of Shandong University is seeking 
a highly motivated individual to work on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and 
its coupling with Discrete Element Method (DEM). Shandong University is ranked 
around 20th in China and 200-300th worldwide by Academic Ranking of World 
Universities. The School is working on transportation and civil engineering, and 
urban underground space engineering. School has one engineering research center 
of the Ministry of Education, two national key laboratories, six provincial 
engineering technology centers, twelve research centers, and has three doctoral 
stations, including geotechnical engineering, disaster prevention and mitigation 
engineering and protection engineering, bridge and tunnel engineering.

Group Leader:
Professor Kaiwei Chu is a Distinguished Professor and leading the CFD-DEM group 
at Shandong University, China. He obtained his PhD degree from the University of 
New South Wales (UNSW) Australia. He is specialized in the modelling and 
simulation of complex particle-fluid flows that are ubiquitous in nature and 
industries and “Kinematics of particle or granular materials” is one of the 125 
most challenging scientific issues published by science in 2005. He carried out 
extensive pioneering work to elucidate the fundamentals of complex particle 
fluid flows by developing and applying combined approach of computational fluid 
dynamics and discrete element method (CFD-DEM) and published more than eighty 
(80) articles in well reputed SCI journals and international conferences. Among 
the 2997 articles on the topic of CFD-DEM in Web of Science, Professor Chu has 
published four (three of them as a first author) of top 10 cited articles (data 
from March 1, 2023). He is also the first author of seven “Top-25 Hottest 
Articles”. He is a highly cited researcher with total citations of 4189, H-index 
of 28 and i10-index of 39, visit

Research Focus:
Develop numerical approach such as CFD/DEM/FEM for solving engineering problems
Development of coarse-grained (CG) DEM model and its application 
Numerical study of fluid-solid system in geotechnical engineering focusing on 
water inrush disaster  
CFD-DEM study of complex particle fluid flows
Large-scale parametric calculations, data mining, deep learning, expert 
systems, and smart factory
You should have:
Master’s in fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, flow phenomena with Computational 
Fluid Dynamics (CFD) or Discrete Element Method (DEM).
Expertise in commercial software ANSYS (preferable) or COMSOL Multi-physics

What we offer:
We will provide recommendation and assist in applying for CSC- or ANSO-
Scholarships. The successful candidates will work in CFD-DEM group.

The successful candidates must be able to interact with faculty, research staff 
and students as well as the CFD-DEM Group.
Interested candidates can send their CVs and academic transcripts to Professor 
Kaiwei Chu at indicating their preference among the topics 
mentioned above.
