Open Ended, 37 hours per week
Within the Energy Emissions and Environment Research Group, you will work on a wide range of Fluid Flow instrumentation and measurement projects. These include internal as well as external fluid flows similar to those encountered in complex geometries such as valves, wind turbines and automotive artefacts.
We are seeking an experienced and highly able research engineer who meets the following criteria. You must have:
Excellent skills and experience in the design and development of electronics systems such as sensors, their circuitry and design/simulation software
Excellent skills and experience in fluid systems’ instrumentation and control, for example flow loops and wind tunnels with associated electronic instrumentation systems
Excellent skills in design and development of flow measuring instruments
Skills and experience in the use of electronic equipment for single phase and multiphase flow measurement.
Skills and experience in the use of CFD software (or equivalent) for the analysis of fluid flow systems will be an advantage.
You will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in a related subject area and will have experience at a level of technical detail in the field of electrical/electronics/mechatronics/sensor/control engineering. Experience in applying your knowledge to flow diagnostics will be an advantage. Furthermore, we would expect you to have a good project management experience. In addition, you should be able to:
Interface directly with engineers and scientists within collaborating companies.
Represent the team at meetings with collaborating companies and in the wider national and international scientific community.
Undertake engineering research leading to peer-reviewed publications.
Demonstrate self-motivation, ingenuity, innovation, flexibility, drive and creativity.
Demonstrate excellent communication skills and a passion for engineering research.
This is a rare opportunity to work in a research group with a world-leading reputation in energy research. The group has outstanding research facilities and there are excellent opportunities to make bids for funding, to publish, undertake site work and to attend meetings and conferences.
This is an open-ended appointment and is dependent upon the availability of specific funding in this School. In the event of there being no further funding available to support this post you will receive appropriate notification of the termination of your employment in accordance with contractual provisions.
