Applications are invited for a Research Assistant/Fellow position in the Center for Advanced Powertrain and Fuels at Brunel University London.
The post holder will be working on a UKRI funded project on the advanced fuel and propulsion technologies for the future low-carbon transport. It will involve advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling studies of fuel injection and combustion process of alternative fuels (methanol, ethanol, hydrogen, methane etc). The successful candidate will develop spray and combustion models of the blends of alternative fuels and perform model validations by using experimental results. Full-cycle engine simulations will also be performed to optimize in-cylinder spray and combustion process of alternative fuel blends for higher engine efficiency and lower emissions.
The successful applicant should have a PhD degree in CFD modeling of spray and combustion processes in combustion engines. Applicants should have great knowledge on injection models and combustion models and have excellent experience in meshing, coding and model validations. Applications will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification.
The successful applicant will work closely with other members and external research partners associated to this project and attend regular project meetings to report the research progress. The applicant is expected to prepare and contribute in the preparation of journal papers and conference proceedings.
