Mechanical Engineering


Welcome to HTL website!

We are interested in understanding two-phase flow and heat transfer mechanisms for the safe and reliable design of high-performance thermal devices. Our research interests include boiling and condensation, high-heat-flux heat transfer, novel heat exchanger system, thermal management, electronics cooling, active flow control, and computational fluid dynamics.
We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral scholars, graduate students (M.S., M.S./Ph.D. Combined, Ph.D.) and undergraduate students. If you are interested in studying in the heat transfer lab, please feel free to contact Prof. Sung-Min Kim.


Postdoctoral Position Available

A postdoctoral position is available in the heat transfer lab focused on thermal design of high-heat-flux heat transfer system. Experience with flow boiling, pool boiling, two-phase flow, phase change heat transfer, micro/nano-channel heat transfer, spray cooling, jet-impingement cooling, and computational heat transfer would be an advantage.
Highly motivated candidates should submit a research statement and curriculum vitae including names and contact information for three references to: smkim@skku.edu.
