匹兹堡大学（University of Pittsburgh），又称“匹大” （PITT），成立于1787年，是历史悠久的世界顶尖公立研究型大学，美国著名高等学府，也是美国最早的十所大学之一。其主校区位于宾夕法尼亚州第二大城市匹兹堡，与卡内基梅隆大学隔街相对，各学院分布在奥克兰区（Oakland），地理位置十分优越。
The research group focuses on using environmental fluid mechanics to tackle transient and steady-state environmental problems mainly via experimental methods.
Multiple fully funded projects are available now. The students will be fully covered via the research funding.
students will get close guidance from the principal investigator for project planning, development of experimental apparatus, data analysis, and manuscript preparation.
Also, students will conduct research with first-rate research facilities in an intellectual environment.
Furthermore, Ph.D. students or a visiting scholar will get enough guidance and practices in presenting research work in major national and international conferences. The anticipated starting time is Summer 2021 or Fall 2021.
• Solid fluid mechanics and turbulence knowledge
• Programming skills in Python or MATLAB
• Fluent in English communication
• Hands-on experience in fluid mechanics experiments
• Solid understanding in mathematics such as linear algebra, partial differential equations, and tensors
• Experience mentoring students
Interested applicants should contact Prof. Lei Fang at email@example.com with the subject line “Prospective Pitt graduate student,” and include a CV.
The preference will be given to the applicants who send CVs before Mar 1, 2021, and Zoom interviews will be scheduled quickly after receiving qualified CVs.
