PhD: Turbomachinery and Propulsion, IPANEMA European project: PhD assistant – Inlet particle separator testing and modeling at the Department of Turbomachinery and Propulsion, Karman Institute in the Department of Turbomachinery and Propulsion.

Duration: three years

Position Start Date: October 2018

Project Overview:

The lab seeking a PhD candidate to join the von Karman Institute in the Department of Turbomachinery and Propulsion.

In the frame of the IPANEMA European project, VKI is asked to deliver a detailed experimental characterisation of the aerodynamic and separation performance of a state-of-art inlet particle separator (IPS) system. The proposed PhD project fits into the aforementioned activities and aims, at its final extent, at delivering a detailed modelling of the component under investigation.

The candidate will:

  1. Take part to the baseline configuration measurement campaign and its processing
  2. Carry out the design of the simplified test section
  3. Develop and validate the required measurement techniques
  4. Take part to the simplified configuration measurement campaign and its processing
  5. Carry out numerical simulations
  6. Carry out modelling

Qualifications / Requirements

  1. Master in science (or near completion) in Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering, or any related engineering field.
  2. Successful applicants will ideally have graduated with an undergraduate Masters first class degree and MSc distinction/honours (or equivalent ranking).
  3. Background and experience in the following subjects is essential: fluid dynamics, measurement techniques and numerical methods for CFD.
  4. Expertise in CFD solvers (such as CFX, Fluent, etc.) and working knowledge of CAD software (such as CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, etc.) are an asset.
  5. Fluent knowledge of English (oral and written) is mandatory.
  6. Candidates are expected to be self-motivated, hardworking and team players.

Conditions of employment: The appointment is for a period of three (03) years, with an intermediate evaluation after two years, resulting in a PhD thesis.

More Information: The supervisors of the PhD project will be Prof. Fabrizio Fontaneto and Prof. Tony Arts.

Application Procedure: Candidates are required to upload a covering letter, curriculum vitae, academic records (complete list of university courses with grades) for both M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees, and the contact of two referees as part of your application. An interview and a scientific presentation will be part of the selection process.

This position is ONLY open to applicants who are EU citizens.
