The University of Glamorgan has an immediate vacancy for a Research Fellow specialising in the simulation of combustion and heat transfer in high temperature industrial processes. The work will encompass a range of physical and computer based simulation techniques. The post will be for a period of 36 months with the successful candidate either possessing a PhD in a relevant discipline or being an experienced engineer who wishes to work towards a PhD.
The successful applicant will join a small team based in the Engineering Research Centre on the University of Glamorgan’s Pontypridd Campus in the south Wales region of the UK. The team is currently engaged in several EC co-funded energy projects, including the RELCOM Oxy-coal project in which IFRF is a partner, and the CRAFTEM project which focuses on efficiency of and emissions from primary glass melters. The central role of the new post is to undertake the development of combustion modelling for application in the challenging glass manufacturing environment. In addition to their own modelling activity, the role holder will liaise with personnel working for project partners in the European glass and burner manufacturing sectors as well as within the fuel supply industry. They will have opportunities to plan and observe industrial scale demonstrations and laboratory scale experimental programmes. The post holder will also be required to support the analysis and dissemination of results collected from a variety of experimental and industrial facilities across Europe.
