Fixed term until 30 November 2018.

You will undertake research on an EPSRC Project, which is in collaboration with the University of Nottingham and the University of Sheffield, to assist the Principal Investigator and project partners in the successful execution of the project. You will undertake independent and collaborative research and will be expected to write up your research for publication. You will be expected to deal with any management/administration problems that may arise from the project and produce and present regular project reports ensuring that the project objectives and deadlines are met.

The main task of the Research Fellow is to conduct dynamic modelling, simulation and optimisation study of ultra-supercritical circulating fluidized bed power plants. The applicants should have the first degree in thermal and power engineering or a related subject area and a PhD degree in the research area of thermal and power engineering or process control.
