Research Associate at Imperial College London

A Postdoc position is available at Imperial College London. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. Applicants should apply before October 12, 2018.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate to work on understanding the multi-scale properties of turbulent jets and plumes using Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS), ultimately aiming to improve turbulence models for Large-Eddy simulation (LES). The successful candidate will work together closely with a Research Associate at Cardiff University.

This is an exciting opportunity, as we recently made substantial progress in the understanding of turbulent entrainment, and our code for DNS is uniquely able to simulate turbulent jets and plumes and our simulations are currently the largest of its kind available in the literature.

This is a fixed term position for 2 years.

The project will involve carrying out DNS of turbulent jets and plumes, to analyse the interface behaviour and to develop turbulence models for LES.

This is a collaborative project between the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London and the School of Engineering at Cardiff University.

To apply you must have a PhD (or equivalent) in Engineering, Physics or Mathematics.

You must have experience in performing DNS or LES on high performance machines, as well as a solid knowledge of turbulent flows.

You will also be a creative problem-solver who enjoys team work.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380 – 35,061 per annum.
