Research Fellow in Modelling of Multiphase Flows and Sprays
School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics
||Brighton - Moulsecoomb
£33,242 to £39,685
||Wednesday 01 October 2014
You will be key members of a specialist team engaged in research on the collaborative projects entitled ‘Investigation of vortex ring-like structures in internal combustion engines, taking into account thermal and confinement effects’ (first post) and ‘Investigation of Non-Spherical Droplets in High-Pressure Fuel Sprays’ (second post). Both projects are supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and are focused on the development of analytical and numerical models for spray and droplet dynamics. To succeed, you will have a good (1 or 2:1) degree in fluid dynamics, mathematics, physics or engineering and a relevant post-graduate qualification/PhD or an equivalent level of professional experience. Competence in analytical and numerical modelling of multiphase flows and sprays, and the related processes is essential, as is good oral and written communication skills in English. Both posts are fixed-term, the first post is for three years with an expected start date of 1 April 2015 or shortly afterwards and the second post is for 25 months with an expected start date of 1 November 2014 or shortly afterwards as funding is limited. Job sharers welcome. Please indicate on your application form whether you are applying for post one or two.
