Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?

Do you have a background in laser diagnostics and combustion science?

Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?


We are looking for an enthusiastic Research Assistant to work with us on exciting combustion research using advanced laser diagnostics. This study focuses on developing a 3D scanning particle image velocimetry (SPIV) within our combustion laboratory. Such technique can provide Mie scattering images in a large set of parallel light-sheet planes using a rapid scanning light-sheet which samples the flow in depth from which the three-dimensional flow field can be reconstructed in the scanned volume. As a highly motivated Research Assistant you will deliver conceptual design and practical lab work and help our project manager to arrange, coordinate and run practical SPIV measurement.

With a Master degree or equivalent in Mechanical Engineering, you will have experience of combustion science and fluid dynamics along with the experimental skill to develop advanced laser diagnostics.
