Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics to work on the Aeroacoustics of Dynamic Stall with Professor Nigel Peake. The position is part of a joint research project between University of Cambridge, University of Bristol and Queen Mary University of London, funded by EPSRC and working with several industrial partners, with the aim of developing improved understanding of, and reduction strategies for, noise pollution by large wind turbines. The post holder will be responsible for developing mathematical and physical models of the fluid mechanics and acoustics of dynamic stall, using a blend of advanced techniques in applied mathematics and fluid mechanics, and will be expected to liaise and collaborate closely with colleagues based in the other partner universities who are responsible for experimental and computational investigations of dynamic stall. The successful candidate will have a PhD in applied mathematics and experience in physical modelling. Familiarity with the use of asymptotic methods is highly desirable. They will: be required to develop and conduct their individual and collaborative research objectives within the overall project; write scientific publications for peer review; plan and manage their own research and administration; be able to communicate material of a technical nature to a range of audiences; and be able to build internal and external contacts relating to the research area.
Informal enquiries may be directed to Professor Nigel Peake (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Start date: 1 January 2024.
