Description

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in TOMoscopy

Central Oxford

We are seeking a full-time Post-Doctoral Research Assistant to join the Korsunsky MBLEM research group at the Department of Engineering Science (central Oxford). The post funded by Innovate UK (EC Pathfinder) grant is fixed term to 31st October 2024.

The research project will unlock the potential of X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) beams for ultrafast time-resolved 3D imaging of stochastic, non- repeatable processes such as moving boundary phenomena in the liquid-gas, liquid-solid and solid-solid systems, including two-phase flows, phase transformations, and rapid deformation phenomena.

The successful candidate will be responsible for providing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) support for experiments involving laminar to turbulent transition flows, bubble formation and collapse during cavitation and ultrasonic peening, and interpreting simulation results using data-driven algorithms such as dynamic mode decomposition. The PDRA will also be involved in preparing and optimizing bespoke experimental configurations in Oxford labs (in collaboration with Prof. Hitoshi Soyama, Tohoku Univ.), participating in beamtime sessions at XFEL (Hamburg) working closely with the local team of Patrick Vagovic and colleagues on beamline SPB/SFX, and processing X-ray imaging data (in collaboration with Prof. Pablo Villanueva Perez, Lund Univ.). An important aspect of the work will involve preparing and delivering presentations and taking the lead in preparing the results for publication.

Applicants should possess a doctoral degree (DPhil/ PhD) (or be near completion past submission) in the field of CFD and/or X-ray science (imaging and diffraction) and have relevant experience and strong background in the area of numerical methods and/or imaging and scattering using partially coherent x-ray beams. You will have the ability to perform innovative and effective numerical and/or experimental studies evidenced by a strong publication record.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Alexander M. Korsunsky (email: alexander.korsunsky@eng.ox.ac.uk)

Only online applications received before midday on 30th September 2022 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.

Fluid dynamics, coherent X-ray beams, XFEL, picosecond pulse, tomography.
