Post Doctoral Research Assistant

Queen Mary University of London - School of Engineering & Materials Science

Thermally Driven Heat Pump Based on Integrated Thermodynamic Cycles for Low Carbon Domestic Heating

Queen Mary is one of the top research-led universities in the UK and it was ranked 9th among the UK multi-faculty universities in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work in the Thermofluids Engineering Group within the field of heat transfer research in the School of Engineering and Materials Science. The work is funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The successful applicant should have a PhD or equivalent in the area of thermofluids engineering. They will contribute to the design, construction and test of microchannel heat exchangers with condensation and flow boiling heat transfer as well as modelling and computational simulation.
