Research Associate – Centre for Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics

Coventry University has established a significant Research Centre in Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics. The Centre has been in existence for 18 months and has established a solid and active portfolio of projects with substantial external funding success from funders. The Centre focuses on the high value to be gained from linking the applied art of flow measurement with the fundamental science of fluid mechanics and most of our work involves experimental, computational and theoretical foundations.

As part of our research strategy the Centre is now looking for a talented Research Associate to join our team to support the delivery of a growing portfolio of research projects.  The post-holder will predominantly assist in the delivery of externally-funded research projects for a variety of UK and international organisations.

With experience in a research environment and a good understanding of research methods with strong experimental focus, you should have a good level of knowledge in fluid flow and flow instrumentation and an ability to apply this knowledge in a multi-disciplinary environment. The post-holder must be comfortable working in a laboratory or industrial environment.

You must have a PhD or have equivalent professional experience in fluid dynamics, applied mathematics, applied physics or a similar discipline. Excellent critical analysis, project management, communication skills and well-developed interpersonal skills are essential, as is the ability to work effectively in a team and on your own initiative. Some of the projects will involve working away from Coventry, with the need to travel elsewhere in the UK and Europe for short periods.

Postdoc in fluid mechanics (31/12/2017)

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering Sciences (original post https://www.kth.se/en/om/work-at-kth/lediga-jobb/what:job/jobID:175557/where:4/ )

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The Linné FLOW Centre (www.flow.kth.se) organizes research in fundamental fluid mechanics at KTH and is one of twenty original centers of excellence set up by the Swedish Research Council (VR). The centre was established with a vision as an outstanding environment for fundamental research in fluid mechanics, where innovative research is born and future research leaders are fostered. It has become one of the internationally-leading research groups in fluid mechanics.

Job description

The research topic is fluid mechanics in the context of one of the following areas:

  • Stability and Control
  • Turbulence and Geophysical Flows
  • Micro- and Complex Flows
  • Aeroacoustics and Compressible Flows
  • Heat Transfer and Reactive Flows
  • e-Science in Fluid Mechanics

The exact topic of the work is not fixed. The applicant is invited to contact researchers at Linné FLOW Centre (www.flow.kth.se), who then act as FLOW Principal Investigator, to define a specific research topic. A potential second year of Postdoc should be agreed upon with the FLOW PI.
