This new and attractive two-year fellowship- program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

    Automotive segment undergoes a significant change due to strong focus on hybridization/electrification related to global targets of CO2 reduction (among others). This leads to R&D in the field of new powertrain solutions and improved passive/active safety of future green vehicles. The FME of CTU in Prague spends a lot of effort/resources on these topics. The following research subtopics have been elaborated recently (within different national and EU grants/projects) while the potential post-doc candidates are expected to take part in some of them: • Unconventional materials and processes in design and manufacturing of vehicle transmissions. • Passive (and active) safety of vehicles mainly focused on testing methods/procedures using available experimental equipment. • Application of alternative fuels in internal combustion engines while also focusing on unconventional combustion modes (e.g., very lean mixture concept + prechamber ignition system). • Investigation of possibilities for improvement of PEM fuel-cell efficiency.
