Job description

Job summary

The Department of Aeronautics is seeking a Research Assistant / Associate to conduct work in the area of High-Fidelity Simulations. The post is funded by the Commission of the European Communities (CEC).

You will focus on developing high-order tools which enable high-fidelity high-Strouhal number simulations to be conducted for investigating and reducing external aircraft noise.

This primarily arises from turbofan engines and increases substantially when installed under the wing of an aircraft. Spectral/hp element methods have already demonstrated lower computational cost for a fixed accuracy in unsteady flows/wave propagation.

You will develop computational techniques within the Nektar++ spectral/hp element framework and apply them to perform and characterise accurate CFD for several industrial test cases and noise reduction techniques.

Duties and responsibilities

Duties include:

  • Extend the Nektar++ software as necessary to achieve the objectives of the projects.
  • Set up and execute the industrial test cases.
  • Develop suitable techniques for the collection and analysis of data.
  • Assist with the analysis of data.
  • Analyse and improve the performance and scalability of the code in large-scale simulations, particularly in relation to I/O.
  • Participate in meetings of the project consortium.

Essential requirements

Those appointed at Research Associate level

Hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, or a closely related discipline.

Those appointed at Research Assistant level

Near completion of a PhD (or equivalent) in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, or a closely related discipline.

Further information

Please note: The post is available until 31st May 2022.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA),which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/

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
