The Research Associates will join Imperial Hazelab, the multidisciplinary research group led by Prof Guillermo Rein, part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. The purpose of Hazelab is to reduce the worldwide burden of accidental fires and protect people, their property, and the environment. To do so, Hazelab studies computationally and experimentally heat transfer processes, condensed-phase chemistry and fluid dynamics of all types of fires.
|Life in Hazelab, sometimes.|
First two RA positions on peat fires are now open here (deadline 29 Aug). The incoming other three RA positions will open soon and are:
- international round-robin of large scale tests of facades in fire.
- computational study of facades fires.
- computational and experimental study of polymer flammability for the aeronautical industry.
More about us: Visit our website Imperial Hazelab, watch the promotional video, and browse through our research papers.
Requirements: If interested in this opportunity, you will be an enthusiastic person who believes in the power of engineering to deliver a better world and who wants to work in the heart of London. You will have MEng, MSc or PhD degrees in engineering or physics, and an inquiring and rigorous approach to science and engineering. Good knowledge in heat transfer and fire are essential. Good team-working and communication skills are essential as well. Overseas candidates welcome.
Topics: There are several positions for experimental or modelling work in the topics of peat fires, facade fires and polymer flammability.
How to apply: Send CV or ask for further details by email to Prof Rein at email@example.com.
Closing date: 8 Sept 2019.
