Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position

09/128/2018: The Department of Mechanical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University announces the availability of a postdoctoral position in the area of experimental fluid mechanics, starting in the Fall of 2018. The objective of the project is to investigate and model a series of physical processes involved with the dispersion of crude oil spills. Included are breakup, entrainment, and transport of oil with and without dispersants, as well interaction of oil with marine zooplankton in several canonical flow settings, such as breaking waves, plumes, planar shear layers and isotropic turbulence over a wide range of scales.  This effort would include assembly or modifications of specialized facilities, development and applications of novel measurement techniques, detailed measurements and analysis, as well as interactions with collaborating groups from several institutions. A Ph.D. degree and extensive background in fluid mechanics, particularly in experimental research, is required. Prior experience in multiphase flows, turbulent flows, and optical/acoustic measurement techniques is desirable.

Interested applicants are invited to submit a detailed resume, including an updated list of publications (along with a sample of a couple of these publications) and names of references electronically to: brogows1@jhu.edu or by surface mail to:

Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position

01/26/2009: The Department of Mechanical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University announces the availability of a postdoctoral position in the area of experimental fluid mechanics, starting in the spring of 2009. The objective of the research is to measure and model the impact of introducing bubbles into a turbulent flow on vibrations of an elastic plate that come into contact with this flow. This project examines how the properties of the bubbly medium, associated noise sources and modifications to the flow affect the wall pressure fluctuations and plate vibrations, including excitation of its resonances. Near future effort will involve also development of novel techniques for global measurements of plate deformation.  A Ph.D. degree and background in fluid mechanics, particularly in experimental research is required. Prior experience in optical measurement techniques and/or in multiphase flows as well as noise and vibrations is desirable.

Questions on the available positions can be addressed to Prof. J. Katz at katz@jhu.edu. Interested applicants are invited to submit a detailed resume, including an updated list of publications (along with a sample of a couple of these publications) and a list of references to:

Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position 

07/31/2008: The Department of Mechanical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University announces the availability of a postdoctoral position in the area of experimental fluid mechanics, starting in the fall of 2008. The predominantly experimental research focuses on high-speed bubbly liquid jet flows, associated cavitation phenomena, as well as occurrence of shock waves and associated bubble dynamics due to the inherent reduction in sound speed. A Ph.D. degree and background in fluid mechanics, particularly in experimental research is required. Prior experience in optical measurement techniques and/or in multiphase flows is desirable. 

Questions on the available positions can be addressed either to Prof. J. Katz at katz@jhu.edu or to Dr. David VanWie at David.VanWie@jhuapl.edu. Interested applicants are invited to submit a detailed resume, including an updated list of publications (along with a sample of a couple of these publications) and a list of references to:

PNAS Paper Published on Dinoflagellates

10/26/2007: In their paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Dr. Jian Sheng, Dr. Edwin Malkiel, Joseph Katz and their collaborators at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute identified the swimming and attack patterns of two deadly sigle-celled microbes known as dinoflagellates linked to fish kills, using the state-of-the-art digital holographic microscopy, which is capable of capturing three-dimensional images of the microbes. This important research progress has been covered by the Headlines@Hopkins, National Science Foundation's Division of Geosciences news release, Washington Times and ScienceDaily.com.


2006 ASME Fluids Engineering Division Knapp Award 

04/14/2006: Graduate student Francesco Soranna, Dr. Yi-Chih Chow, Dr. Oguz Uzol, and Prof. Joseph Katz has won the Knapp Award from the ASME Fluids Engineering Division, which is given to the authors of the best paper dealing with analytical, numerical and laboratory research.


2005 Outstanding Paper

04/14/2006: Alumnus Dr. Jun Chen and Prof. Joseph Katz were recognized with the Outstanding Paper for 2005 honor for their work in the journal "Measurement Science and Technology."
