A research assistant position is available at Aerodynamics Acoustics and Noise control Technology Centre (AANTC), HKUST, working in racing equipment/sports engineering aerodynamics. The position is a part of an exciting opportunity to work with professional racing teams and racing car professionals. The successful applicant will be part of a multi-year project at HKUST. The project aims to enhance the aerodynamic performance of professional cyclists. The aerodynamic drag of professional track-cyclists at their top speed can account for up to 95% of the total power demand. The successful applicant will be part of a team that focuses on both numerical and experimental methods to reduce power output/drag. The research will be centred around a newly commissioned large low-noise wind tunnel at HKUST, and the computational modelling work will be conducted using on-site and off-site computational facilities. The initial appointment can be for two years and renewable. The position can lead to PhD/MPhil opportunities.
Key responsibilities can be in one or more fields below:
Key requirements include (but not necessarily mandatory):
Aerodynamics Acoustics and Noise control Technology Centre (AANTC)
The AANTC centre is led by Prof. Xin Zhang and it is based in the School of Engineering, which has a strong international reputation and consistently ranks highly among the top engineering schools. At the AANTC academic staff, research fellows and PhD students work together to develop advanced computational codes for aerodynamics, aeroacoustics and performance simulation, drag and noise reduction concepts to provide engineering solutions for industry. The centre possesses a suite of high-order computational aeroacoustic codes, and various noise and flow facilities. The group has an extensive global network of academic links and industry collaborations. For current projects and research at the AANTC, please see http://aantc.ust.hk.
