We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to work on an exciting sensor signal processing project. You will join the Signal Processing Group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at the University of Liverpool.
The project is concerned with the use of simulation tools for computational fluid dynamics to model the wakes generated by objects moving through bodies of water. The aim will be to generate disturbances in the water that are characteristic of the motion of the object, and then to represent how these disturbances are reflected in the signals generated by an acoustic sensor, called an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP). The project will then be concerned with developing versions of the simulation tools that can run on a distributed processing architecture.
To fulfil all the deliverables of the project you will work closely with team members as well as our external partner, Sonardyne International Ltd. You should therefore be enthusiastic in the discipline, committed, and motivated with an aptitude for independent working as well as working as part of a diverse, interdisciplinary team. To be considered for this post, you should include a cover letter that clearly highlights your skills, how you meet the criteria set out in the person specification below and sets out your career motivation.
The School of Electrical Engineering Electronics and Computer Science is an Athena Swan Bronze award holder and is committed to encouraging, developing and supporting individuals in their research and academic careers. A dynamic, diverse and inclusive working environment must be an integral part of our society, giving everyone the opportunity to participate and to benefit. Thus, we welcome applications from all sectors of the community. This post is a full-time position but we recognise that many individuals value flexibility in their work/life balance and can confirm that we support family friendly policies. As part of our commitments to increase diversity and inclusivity within our school, we particularly welcome applications from women, people who identify as an ethnic minority, people with disabilities and people from LGBTQ+ communities, as they are currently under-represented in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics.
Any applicants who are still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30. Upon written confirmation that they have been successful in being awarded their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7, spine point 31 from the date of their award.
This post is available on a fixed term basis from 1st May 2023 until 31st July 2024.
The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received.
