Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position funded on the Engineering and Physical Research Council (EPSRC) project "Health assessment across biological length scales for personal pollution exposure and its mitigation (INHALE)". The successful candidates will join the large multi-disciplinary Applied Modelling and Computational Group (AMCG) at Imperial College London.
The project is a high-profile £3.5M grant led by Professors Fan Chung (National Heart & Lung Institute) and Christopher Pain (Engineering, Earth Sciences) of Imperial College London, in collaboration with University of Edinburgh, and the University of Surrey. We are integrating the impact of pollution across biological length scales, from the cellular and respiratory scales, with respiratory health outcomes within the immediate space of an individual. The aim is to develop a novel modelling capability to determine the impact of pollution on personal health in both outdoor and indoor urban environments.
Duties and responsibilities
The successful applicant’s work will focus on developing some of the world-leading numerical technologies for urban air flow modelling. These will include: the latest multi-scale methods; reduced order models; air flows in urban environments; anisotropic mesh adaptivity and parallel solver algorithms. These developments will be built within a single, all encompassing, fully multi-scale finite element model for use within industry and academia both in the UK and beyond.
This is a 24 month fixed term position.
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £34,397 - £37,486 per annum.
Informal inquiries about the position can be made to Prof Christopher Pain firstname.lastname@example.org
