UCL Mechanical Engineering
Faculty of Engineering Sciences


Research Fellow in Lattice Boltzmann Simulation

Mechanical Engineering
Full Time
Grade 7 (£36,028 - £43,533)
Closing date:
9 May 2021

Duties and Responsibilities

The project is funded by the EPSRC to study the dynamics and mechanisms of flame synthesis of functional nanomaterials.

The Research Fellow will fulfil the objectives of the specified EPSRC grant, in collaboration with research partners in Cambridge University and industry. Numerical simulations will be conducted in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, UCL while experimental measurements and tests will be performed in the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University.

They will develop and apply the lattice Boltzmann method for multi-component multiphase and thermal flow. They will also assist the PI in running the UK national consortium UKCOMES.

They will collaborate with experimentalists in model validation and data analysis. They will also document codes, databases and other results in archival forms.

The post is an EPSRC funded appointment and for 1 year in the first instance.

Key Requirements

You will have a PhD in lattice Boltzmann method, multiphase flow, reactive flow, thermal flow, material science, physics, chemistry, or related fields.

You will have experience in the development of lattice Boltzmann methods.

You will have good written and spoken English and skills in: programming using high-level languages, parallel computing, data processing and data analysis.
