Join Imperial Hazelab: Research Associate investigating fire and polymer composites used in airplanes

Applications are invited for a Research Associate in the field of fire science and engineering at Imperial College London, UK.

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.

We recently obtained industrial funding for a new project called DAEDALUS funded by Innovate UK which, in close collaboration with the London firm FAC Technology, will study fire and the polymer composites used in airplanes. FAC Technology is a leading-edge R&D firm focused on the design, testing and manufacturing of composite structures. As such, we are looking to hire a Research Associate to assist in our research which will ultimately boost our understanding of ignition and fire safety for composite materials.

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. National and overseas are candidates welcome.
How to apply: Follow this link.

Closing date: 24 Nov 2019

Queries relating to the position should be directed to Prof Guillermo Rein at or +44(0) 20 7594 7036.
