Research Fellow in Modelling of Multiphase Flows and Sprays

University of Brighton - School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics

Applications are invited from a highly motivated researcher to work as part of a specialist team, engaged in research on the project entitled ‘Investigation of vortex ring-like structures in internal combustion engines, taking into account thermal and confinement effects’. This project is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and is focused on the development of analytical and numerical models for spray and droplet dynamics. 

Please click on the following link for further details: https://www.brighton.ac.uk/advanced-engineering/research-projects/investigation-of-vortex-ring-like-structures-in-internal-combustion-engines.aspx

To succeed, you will have a good (1 or 2:1) degree in fluid dynamics, mathematics, physics or engineering and a relevant post-graduate qualification/PhD. Competence in analytical and numerical modelling of multiphase flows and sprays, and the related processes, proven by publications in international refereed journals is essential, as is good oral and written communication skills in English. Ideally the candidate should be familiar with the Fully Lagrangian method to be used during the work on the project.

For an informal discussion please contact Professor S. Sazhin by emailing S.Sazhin@brighton.ac.uk
