Company: The company principally operates through its three primary segments - Construction Industries, Resource Industries and Energy & Transportation. With 100,000 employees and annual R&D investment of $2.0B, our client is developing and deploying technologies for ultra-low emissions, high efficiency engines and propulsion systems. The Energy & Transportation Technology (UK) team has global responsibility for developing technology to support future product needs. Job Specific Responsibilities: Our client is the recipient of a Marie-Curie ITN grant (MSCA-ITN-EID GRANT AGREEMENT No: 861002). Under this grant, they will be collaborating to develop improved technologies for the simulation of fuel injection, mixing, combustion and prediction of performance emissions in dual fuel engines. This intersectoral, interdisciplinary research will be performed across leading universities and institutions around the world. This role is open to Early Stage Researchers (ESR's) in the first 4 years of their careers (as measured from the date of their MS/MSc degree).

The specific responsibilities of this ESR10 are to co-develop, implement, debug, test and validate CFD submodels in the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) framework to more accurately predict the mixing, ignition and combustion of diesel fuel injections in natural gas. Emissions and performance predictions are the ultimate goal of these models, which will be used for the optimization of engine designs. However, gaps currently exist in spray breakup, momentum transfer (spray-gas coupling), evaporation, turbulence and chemical kinetic models currently employed to simulate this complex combustion process. ESR10 will work on a subset of these models (e.g. vaporization) to identify short-comings and propose improvement to the models. Collaborating with the other ESR's, and other researchers at City University, ESR10 will improved models and validate against experimental data. Further parametric simulations to evaluate the performance of various engine configurations will be required. Publication and dissemination of the findings of the research program will be required. Budget has been allocated for ESR's to travel to conferences (in addition to project review meetings) across Europe. Additionally, the ESRs will also be required to conduct outreach activities to encourage the next generation to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Support will be provided to the ESR's in accomplishing these STEM activities which have ranged from high school presentations, job fairs and technology showcases in the past.
