Research Fellow in Modelling of Multiphase Flows and Sprays

School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics

Location:  Brighton - Moulsecoomb
Salary:  £35,211 to £42,036 per annum
Contract Length: 18 months
Fixed Term End Date: 15/06/2020
Closing Date:  Sunday 03 March 2019
Interview Date:  Wednesday 08 May 2019
Reference:  SM4108-19-023

You will be a key member of a specialist team engaged in research on the project entitled ‘Unveiling the injection dynamics of cryogenic energy carriers for zero-emission high-efficiency systems’. The project is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and is focused on creating new fundamental knowledge and advanced numerical tools regarding the atomisation, heating and evaporation characteristics of liquefied gases, in order to significantly advance the technology required to efficiently control cryogenic injection. The project also relies on close collaboration with two leading UK companies in the field of innovative energy system solutions (Ricardo Ltd and Libertine Ltd).

Your role will be to support the research by developing and applying in a code (preferably OpenFoam) a novel model linking injection and spray dynamics at ultra high pressures for cryogenic liquids and to analyse large and complex data sets in consultation with the Principal Investigator.  Further information on the role can be found in the job description.

to succeed in the role, you will need:

  • a good (1 or 2:1) degree in fluid dynamics, mathematics, physics or engineering and a relevant post-graduate qualification/PhD or equivalent professional experience in one of the subject areas
  • competence in analytical and numerical modelling of multiphase flows and sprays, and the related processes.
  • programming experience (ideally of OpenFoam)
  • ability to communicate complex information clearly and persuasively, both orally and in writing.
  • the ability to work in an industrial environment and respecting strict deadlines in terms of deliverables
  • the ability to co-supervise two PhD students

The post is fixed-term for 18 months as funding is limited with the possibility for extension depending on the progress and available funding.  For an informal discussion please contact Dr K. Vogiatzaki by e-mailing
