Job description

Research Associate - Validation of Torsional Vibration Absorber Technology for the Next Generation of Drivelines


FULL TIME, FIXED TERM contract for 11 months. The post holder must be in post by 1 June 2024.

The goal of this project is to develop novel solutions to mitigate against torsional vibrations more effectively for the next generation of powertrains, and to overcome the issues associated with existing damping devices. These potential solutions will improve durability of the coupling and driveline whilst reducing the overall weight of the powertrain.

The project is in collaboration with Gibson Technology Ltd (GT) but the project output can potentially be adapted for various applications (e.g., automotive powertrains).

We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic Research Associate to utilise concepts of dynamics and vibrations and develop tools for analysis of novel vibration absorber designs for powertrain applications.

As part of this role, candidate is also expected to develop a prototype of the unit and carry out a series of laboratory tests at Loughborough University as well as system level tests in the industrial partner's premises.

Through this project, the intention is to de-risk the technical adoption of the developed technology. In essence, project will enable the team to test the efficiency and performance of this novel solution in reducing vibrations.

This role is based at Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering at Loughborough University campus. Loughborough University is renowned for the relevance of its research. Research undertaken at Loughborough helps industry to compete more effectively, shape public policy and ultimately improve the quality of people's lives.

Informal enquiries should be sent to Dr Nader Dolatabadi at [email protected]

The closing date for applications is 7 April 2024.
