We are seeking a postdoctoral research assistant to join Professor Li He’s research group at the Department of Engineering Science (based in the Southwell Building). The post is funded by EPSRC and is fixed-term for 18 months.

The project will involve analyses of unsteady fluid-solid coupled conjugate heat transfer computations for a novel heat transfer enhancement mechanism. You will be responsible for scoping studies, verification/validation of the coupled modelling and method, analysing/understanding the underlining CHT aerothermal physics and scoping configurations.

You should possess a PhD (or be near completion) with substantial experience in computational fluid dynamics application, preferably in convective heat transfer related topics areas. Good organisational skills and the ability to communicate scientific ideas to an expert audience are also required.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor L He using the email address below.

Further information can be found at:

You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 19 February 2020 can be considered.

The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
