£25,134 - £27,466
Open to: owners of a PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Computational Aeroacoustics or a related area
A post-doctorate researcher is required to work on a UK Airbus Technology Programme for an initial period of two years starting on 01 April.
The Airbus UK funded program is to develop numerical simulation methods for aircraft noise sources, in particular landing gears.
The work will be carried out in the School of Engineering Sciences at the University of Southampton, but will require close collaboration with colleagues in Airbus UK and other institutions.
The aim of the research is to study the aerodynamics and noise generation mechanisms of bluff bodies, pertinent to landing gears. The activity will involve the simulation/modelling of the unsteady flow around simplified (clean) landing gear geometries.
You should have (or be near to completing) a PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Computational Aeroacoustics or a related area, or equivalent working/research experience.
The work will require a good understanding of fluid dynamics and numerical methods for flow and turbulence simulation.
Background and experience in large eddy simulation and unsteady RANS simulation will be an advantage.
An understanding of the mechanics of aerodynamic noise generation will also be an advantage.
Training will be provided to use both in-house computational aeroacoustics codes and industry codes.
The post involves regular travel between Southampton University and the Airbus UK Filton site.
The closing date for this post is 03 March.
Early applications (with the names of at least two referees) are strongly encouraged.
