Marie Curie Research Fellow in High Frequency Wave Modelling

Job Reference : 00292
Location : Clifton Campus
Closing Date : 15/04/2014
Salary : See special conditions
Department : College of Science and Technology
School/Section : School of Science & Technology
Post Ref : S1289

Post Ref No: S1289

Additional Information: This post is fixed term for 20 months

Special Conditions:

The salary for this role is £53,765 per annum, plus a market rate supplement of between £7,870 and £16,353 for the duration of the project (payable quarterly and dependent upon the costs associated with your employment at NTU).

Candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their start date.

The School of Science and Technology is an exciting multi-disciplinary environment for research and was highly rated in RAE2008.

This is an EU Marie Curie funded post-doctoral research position on the Industry and Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) project Mid-to-High Frequency Modelling of Vehicle Noise and Vibration (MHiVec). MHiVec is a collaborative project between Nottingham Trent University, the University of Nottingham, the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at the University of Southampton, InuTech GmbH, CDH AG, and Jaguar Land Rover. The fellow will therefore be expected to collaborate with both academic and industrial partners on the project.

The researcher will work on the development of new integral equation methods for modelling vehicle body vibrations at high frequencies, including the modelling of uncertain structures. Candidates will be expected to have a PhD in a relevant discipline (mechanical engineering, mathematics or physics), along with numerical programming skills in at least one of MATLAB or C++, a good command of English and an enthusiasm for working in an international and inter-disciplinary research environment. Experience in the theory and implementation of boundary integral methods is highly favourable. The post would be ideally suited to a highly promising early career researcher.

Closing date: Tuesday 15 April 2014
Interview date: W/C 5 May 2014
