Research Fellow in Modelling of Multiphase Flows and Sprays (SM4094-18-591)
Applications are invited from highly motivated researchers to work as part of a specialist team, engaged in research on the project entitled ‘A generalised Fully Lagrangian Approach for gas-droplet flows’. This project is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and is focused on the development of analytical and numerical models for spray and droplet dynamics.
Please click on the following link for further details https://www.brighton.ac.uk/advanced-engineering/research-projects/a-generalised-fully-lagrangian-approach-for-gas-droplet-flows.aspx
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. Competence in analytical and numerical modelling of multiphase flows and sprays, and the related processes, proven by publications in international refereed journals is essential, as is good oral and written communication skills in English. The candidate should be familiar with OpenFOAM Lagrangian solvers, and the Fully Lagrangian method to be used during the work on the project.
At Research Fellow level, staff are expected to be involved in the developing, planning and managing of research projects in consultation with a Principal Investigator, developing a publication record and learning to generate funding and supervise less experienced researchers. The role will normally require a level of research knowledge, skill and experience equivalent to PhD. Research Fellows may also be expected to contribute to the teaching and/or consultancy activities in order to ensure continuous development of knowledge in the subject area.
