Opportunities for 2015

Research Assistant/Associate/Fellow in Turbulent Flow Research

Applications will again be invited for Research Assistant/Associate/Fellow positions in Turbulent Flow Research in 2015, probably by March/April 2015.  The posts will be funded by a five-year €2.3M European Research Council (ERC) funded Advanced Grant awarded to J.C. Vassilicos and which started in May 2013. The Research Assistant/Associate/Fellow's work will be part of a wide programme including turbulence interscale dynamics in non-equilibrium and equilibrium regimes with various types of turbulence cascade and interscale exchanges and evolutions, dissipation, vortex and strain-rate dynamics; related statistics of the multiscale topology within the turbulence; two-point and one-point turbulent theories and modelling and related turbulent flow profiles, self-similarity and self-preservation, and conservation laws; mixing and heat transfer by a new class of fractal/multi-scale stirrers which also define new canonical flows; aerodynamic forces and their fluctuations on fractal/multiscale objects and new types of wakes, jets and plumes. Both boundary-free and wall flows will be considered with a preference for spatially developing turbulent flows as well as interactions of different turbulent flows. Both fundamentals and applications will be included in the overall research programme, the latter including wind tunnel simulations of atmospheric 
flows, wind turbines, mixers and heat transfer devices.

Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers in MULTISOLVE: Conceptually new, multi-scale solutions to industrial flow problems (closed!)

We are seeking to appoint 13 EU Early Stage Researchers to work on the theoretical, computational and experimental investigation of new, multi-scale solutions to industrial flow problems. Both experimental and computational projects (both with potential for related theoretical work) are avai lable and will for m part of the Innovative Doctoral Programme (IDP) project "MULTISOLVE", which is supported by the EU. The work will be based primarily at the Department of Aeronautics, Imperial College Lo n don, under the supervision of Dr Paul Bruce, Dr George Papadakis and Prof essor Christos Vassilicos. Imperial College London is consistently ranked as one of the top ten universities in the world, and is located in South Kensington, in the heart of London.
