Position: Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Institution: Queen Mary University of London
Department: School of Engineering & Materials Science
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: This project focuses on further improving the capabilities of design optimization algorithms in collaboration with an industrial client. The in-house Queen Mary, University of London unstructured adjoint CFD solver STAMPS will be enhanced to include variable geometry aspects of radial turbo-machines, including the development of mixing planes and variable geometry diffusors. The researcher is expected to validate his/her developments in the CFD flow and adjoint solver against experimental results and related studies. The successful candidate will conduct several gradient-based optimsations of radial compressors to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach
Requirements: The successful applicant should have a PhD or equivalent professional experience in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering with research experience in development of numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics. Experience with Numerical Optimisation, Automatic Differentiation, CAD, knowledge of turbomachinery flows and their discretisation, working with larger programming packages and High Performance Computing is desirable

With over 20,000 students, it is among the largest of the colleges of the University of London. Queen Mary’s 4,000 staff teach and research across a wide range of subjects in Science and Engineering, the Humanities, Social Sciences and Laws, and Medicine and Dentistry. This post is within the School of Engineering and Materials Science, a large School with approximately 70 academic staff and 45 postdoctoral research staff. There are around 1000 undergraduate and taught postgraduate students and 220 PhD students. Circa 40 administrative and technical staff support the staff and students. The staff and student body are international in make-up. The School is partway through a refurbishment project that is upgrading research and teaching space. The School holds a departmental-level Bronze Athena SWAN award and is committed to equality of opportunity. About the role Optimal Radial Machinery Design using Adjoint CFD Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant working under the supervision of Dr. Jens-Dominik Mueller in the School of Engineering & Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, as part of a project with industry focusing on the development of an effective numerical optimisation method for radial turbomachinery components. Radial turbomachinery components such as in use in automotive turbochargers are currently designed and optimized by relying significantly on CFD and numerical optimization techniques. This project focuses on further improving the capabilities of design optimization algorithms in collaboration with an industrial client. The in-house Queen Mary, University of London unstructured adjoint CFD solver STAMPS will be enhanced to include variable geometry aspects of radial turbo-machines, including the development of mixing planes and variable geometry diffusors.
