Senior Research Associate in Thermofluids and Propulsion Systems

Loughborough University - Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering

This is an exciting opportunity for an innovative senior researcher to join a strong group investigating and developing thermofluid technologies, including those for improving engine/propulsion/energy systems' performance, fuel economy, emissions and sustainability. However, please apply if you have ideas and skills outside these specific areas. The work will involve working with major international engine/vehicle manufacturers. The primary role is to develop new lines of research and to support existing activities under the overall direction of Professor Colin Garner FREng.

Only exceptional candidates will be considered for this Senior Research position and they must have excellent inter-personal and communication skills - both written and oral.

Applicants must have a doctorate (e.g. PhD or EngD) in a relevant subject or extensive equivalent experience in an intensive advanced research environment, and ideally have relevant postgraduate research or industrial experience in any of the following areas: optical measurements, fluid flow; combustion; heat transfer; chemical processes; IC engines; gas turbines or other energy systems. Significant research experience and demonstration of excellent technical ability is essential.

Informal enquiries should be made to Professor Colin Garner FREng by email at or by telephone on +44 (0)1509 227527.
