3.5 years fixed term

A collaborative project between The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University

We are seeking an exceptional individual to join the research project, and to advance the state of the art in rotorcraft modelling and simulation. You will be highly motivated and able to contribute immediately to the development of capability in the host organisations.

The project, funded by the EPSRC, offers a unique opportunity to conduct inter-disciplinary research with multi-national partners. The research involves close collaboration between The University of Liverpool (UoL) and Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). The working office will be in the Flight Science Laboratory in UoL and be jointly supervised by the PI and CIs in both Institutions. Research will be conducted using UoL’s HELIFLIGHT-R flight simulator together with “real-world” flight testing using the National Research Council of Canada’s Bell 412 Advanced Systems Research Aircraft. Flight test data will be used with advanced system identification techniques to increase the fidelity of the flight simulation models used on HELIFLIGHT-R.
