Research Fellow in Ammonia-Aerosol Combustion
- University of Leeds
- Location: Leeds, United Kingdom
- Job Number: 7090029 (Ref #: EPSPA1047)
- Posting Date: Dec 3, 2021
Are you an ambitious researcher interested in developing promising solutions to achieve net zero carbon emissions? Do you have an established background in computational fluid dynamics? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research-intensive Universities?
You will work on a multidisciplinary project funded by the STFC Horizons (Net Zero) programme with Dr Van Loo and Dr Yang to investigate the properties of ammonia-aerosol combustion.
You will develop a numerical model describing the multi-phase, multi-scale and multi-physics process of ammonia-aerosol combustion and perform a suite of numerical simulations exploring the parameter space for the combustion process, similar to the conditions employed in experimental tests performed at the Bradley combustion laboratory at the University of Leeds. You will validate the numerical model with these experiments to gain insight into the physical process governing flame instability.
Holding a PhD (or have submitted your thesis before taking up the role) in Computational Fluid Dynamics or a closely allied discipline, you will have experience in developing and running numerical models of complex physical processes and a developing track record of peer reviewed publications in international journals.
