PhD Internship Programme at McLaren, UK

PhD Internship Programme

Location: Woking, GB

At McLaren Racing we pride ourselves in engineering excellence and we achieve this by working
together and encouraging innovation in an extraordinary high performance environment.
The McLaren PhD internship programme in CFD and data analytics gives you an opportunity to work in a
unique & challenging environment of the motorsport aerodynamics department. As an intern in the
CFD methodology team, you will be involved in development/evaluation of CFD, big data analytics,
machine learning and neural networks techniques and tools to be used in the aerodynamic design
of the F1™ car.
Interns will also have an opportunity to work on projects providing CFD support to non-aero departments.
Working closely with the aerodynamicists, CFD R&D engineers and HPC systems engineers, you will have
an opportunity to learn practical aspects of motorsport aerodynamic design.
The internship is open to PhD students in engineering or computing science from the second year onwards
and this four month programme starts in January, May and September.

  1. PhD Position available at HZDR on:Experimental investigation of turbulent convection in liquid metals

—————————–
Many turbulent flows in nature and technical applications are driven by temperature differences. The aim of this project is to investigate such a turbulent convection in a laboratory set-up using liquid metal. The goal is to reveal the structure and the dynamics of the large scale circulation as well as the dynamics near the boundary layers. Therefore, different measuring techniques as the ultrasound Doppler velocimetry and the contactless inductive flow tomography are available. The experiments are supported by high performance numerical simulations from a project partner. The combined investigation will create a new milestone in the deep understanding of turbulent convection in liquid metals and their numerous applications in geo- and astrophysics as well as technical systems.

Requirements:

  • Diploma or M.Sc in Physics, mechanical engineering or equivalent.
  • Comprehensive technical skills and physical understanding.

Tasks:

  • design of a cylindrical Rayleigh-Bénard convection cell -simultaneous measurements of velocity field, temperature field  and heat flux inside the convection
  • analysis of the three-dimensional structure and the dynamics of the  “large scale circulation”
  • comparison of the results to direct numerical simulations done by a  project partner
  • scientific publishing

 

The position is available from Oct. 1, 2017. For further information, please contact Tobias Vogt (t.vogt(at)hzdr.de) or Sven Eckert (s.eckert(at)hzdr.de)

  1. RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITION IN COVENTRY – FLOW MEASUREMENT AND FLUID MECHANICS RESEARCH CENTRE (closing 19/07/17)
    —————————–
    (from Alban Potherat, Coventry, UK )
    An EPSRC-funded, postdoctoral Research Associate position is available
    at Coventry University working on the transition to turbulence in
    non-Newtonian shear flows. The successful applicant will work with the
    aim of adapting already existing numerical tools from the Newtonian
    problem, and developing entirely new ones. See full details here. Applications closes on 19th July 2017.

  1. PHR17 CONFERENCE: FIFTY YEARS AFTER ROBERTS’ MHD: DYNAMOS AND PLANETARY FLOWS TODAY (PHR17)
    —————————–
    (from Andrew Jackson, ETH Zurich)
    To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of the seminal work “An Introduction to Magnetohydrodynamics” (Longman’s, 1967) by P.H. Roberts, there will be a 2 day conference in London.This conference will take place at the Royal Astronomical Society, Piccadilly, London on 16-17 November, 2017.

    The honoured guest will be Paul Roberts FRS, who will also speak.

    It is fifty years since Paul Roberts FRS set down the fundamentals of
    magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) in his seminal book. New results have
    recently emerged from numerical dynamos, theoretical analyses, planetary
    missions to Mercury and Jupiter and liquid metal experiments. Here we
    wish to bring together theoreticians, numericists and experimentalists
    to discuss the frontiers of dynamo theory and fluid flows in planetary
    contexts.

    There will be a series of invited talks.

    Financial support
    In order for Research Students and Early Career Postdocs to attend, there is a limited number
    of registration waivers available. Please write to  A Jackson with a short case for support by 11 August.

    Poster submissions are requested (limited in number due to space), on all topics concerned with fluid dynamics and MHD.
    These can be submitted at the same time as registration.

    More details can be found on the website
    jupiter.ethz.ch/~ajackson/phr17/phr17.html
