We are seeking a full time to join the Thermal Propulsion System Research Group (TPSRG: https://eng.ox.ac.uk/tpsrg/ ) at the Department of Engineering Science (Central Oxford). The post is funded by EPSRC and is fixed-term for 12 months. The position serves the Oxford TPSRG and Convergent Science, where the aim is to broaden the impact of research from TPSRG and help build a more open-source data platform to showcase the research excellence within the TPSRG. You will be responsible for the development, validation, and implementation of advanced turbulent combustion models. Additional duties also include constructing a database from previous research activities in TPSRG and making it available to the wider community. The candidate will be working closely with Dr Felix Leach, Dr Leo Fang and external research associates within the Convergent Science research and development team.
You will possess a relevant PhD/DPhil (or be close to completion) in engineering, computational sciences, physical sciences, or mathematics, together with sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within an established research program. Previous novel numerical model development experience (particularly CMC-based models and spray sub-models) within Converge or OpenFoam environment is essential to this job
Only online applications received before midday on 3rd November 2023 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.
The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
