Fixed Term Until 31 March 2018 at the Latest.

This is an excellent short term opportunity to contribute to research in hydrogen energy and work with the group at Loughborough University. The Research Associate will join an established group investigating hydrogen safety. In this work, safety of hydrogen in connection with a novel metal hydride based energy store is to be investigated using computational fluid dynamics based fire and flame propagation modelling. The first part of this project has been mainly on fire modelling and that work has been completed. The RA who will join is expected to get familiarise with the work done so far on metal hydride safety aspects and complete remaining tasks including publications. With the support of the supervisors the RA is expected to engage in developing new lines of research and writing of research proposals for further work. Excellent technical writing ability and communications skills are essential form the RA.
