• Minimum qualification - Honours degree at 2:1 or above (or International equivalent) in a relevant science or engineering discipline, possibly supported by an MSc Degree.
• Some knowledge and experience of numerical methods, engineering design, and experimental work preferred.
• Proficiency at technical communication and knowledge of design packages would be an advantage.
• Ability to communicate concepts and results effectively: verbally to colleagues, by oral presentation, and in writing.
• Aptitude to work within a collaborative group of investigators and to contribute to discussion, review and analysis.
• Tuition fees and stipends are available for Home/EU students.
To undertake this research, we are seeking a motivated candidate with an honours degree at 2:1 or above in Mechanical Engineering or a related topic. Some knowledge and experience of numerical methods, engineering design, experimental work and an ability to work effectively as an independent researcher will be advantageous.
The student will gain skills in mechanical engineering design, numerical modelling, experimental design and analysis, high temperature engineering and turbomachinery. These skills will be essential for a student seeking to enter industry as a technical expert in the energy engineering sector or wishing to pursue an academic career in mechanical engineering.
The successful applicant will work at the Institute of Energy Systems within the School of Engineering at Edinburgh University during this project.
