Applications are invited for a full-time Research Associate/Fellow position within the Power Electronics Machines and Control research group.
The successful candidate will support two new research projects developing modelling techniques and model exchange formats for power electronic systems.
Candidates should hold a good honours degree in electrical/electronic engineering or a related discipline, and hold or be working towards a PhD in electrical/electronic engineering or in an appropriate field. Experience of model development in general purpose engineering modelling tools (e.g. MATLAB, Modelica) is required, as is a good knowledge of fundamental simulation methods and algorithms required to implement simulations from first principles. Knowledge of power electronic systems, their electrothermal behaviour and design challenges is also essential.
Candidates should have the ability to work independently within a multidisciplinary research team and have excellent interpersonal and IT skills.
The following experience would be desirable
• Use of 3D, Finite-Element type software packages (e.g. Ansys Mechanical and Electromagnetic packages, CST Studio) for power converter/module design optimisation.
• Software development in C/C++
• Working knowledge of computer graphics and visualisation using software libraries/packages such as VTK and/or Unity Engine.
• Knowledge of reduced order modelling methods, model order reduction algorithms, for accelerating 3D simulations.
This role is available on a fixed term contract for a period of 2 years. Hours of work are full time (36.25 hours). Job share arrangements may be considered.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Paul.Evans@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
