We welcome applications for this exciting new Research Fellow post, supporting
a project that will deliver major impact through developing the next
generation design methods for the next generation aircraft which will need to
deliver low, or even zero carbon emission flight.
About the Role
This post will be contributing to research activities focussing on the
development of data fusion approaches whereby experimental data and high-
fidelity data, at varying Mach number, Reynolds number and from a variety of
sources, can be brought together to form a single contiguous dataset for
analysis in its own right, and for validation of the lower order methods. You
will also be involved in the integration of these methods to the industry
partner on this project as well as ensuring the delivery of project goals, and
the dissemination of research activities through publication.
You will be educated to doctoral level in a relevant subject (or close to
completion of your PhD), with the necessary technical knowledge and
experience with a track record of design optimization for real world problems
in aerospace or other domains. With excellent communication skills, you will
be a good team player, enjoy presenting, and have the ability to cope with
pressure. Project planning is also an important skill for these posts and
successful applicants will be able to demonstrate self-motivation,
perseverance, and initiative.
