We are seeking an excellent post-doctoral researcher to join the AFIRMATIVE project at Imperial College London.
This ERC-funded project develops, validates and uses analytical models for the acoustic-flow interactions that occur for flows passing through acoustic damper and burner geometries. The models will capture how incident acoustic waves are either damped or amplified due to interactions between the acoustic waves and the flow. The models will be validated using flow simulations, and used as the basis for optimising the geometry of the dampers or burners for acoustic performance. This will be relevant to eliminating thermoacoustic oscillations in the aerospace and power industries, and to optimising acoustic dampers across a wide range of industries.
The post will form a key component of the AFIRMATIVE project (2018-23), funded by the European Research Council and led by Professor Aimee Morgans.
Duties and Responsibilities
Your key duties and responsibilities will be:
It will also be possible to contribute to the supervision of PhD students and Masters level projects and to contribute to Department teaching.

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/
