The Hazelab group within the Thermofluids Division at Imperial College wishes to appoint two Research Associates to conduct research into wildfires at Imperial College London. We are a multidisciplinary research group led by Prof. Guillermo Rein and are one of the largest fire science groups in Europe and carries out world-leading research in both fundamental and applied aspects of fire science and engineering.
This Research Associate position will be involved in the ERC funded project HAZE (2016-2021), which studies the global problem of smouldering peat fires. The ongoing project involves the study of smouldering combustion, analysing the mechanisms of spread and its emissions. The outcomes will continue boosting our understanding of how smouldering fires ignite, spread and extinguish.
Duties and Responsibilities
As a Research Associate on this project, you will be expected to identify and develop suitable techniques, and apparatus, for the collection and analysis of thermophysical data from smouldering peat fires both at laboratory and field scales.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research/
