The successful candidate must demonstrate;

  • A thorough understanding of experimental methods and analysis techniques for unsteady, multi-phase reacting flows.
  • An in-depth understanding of advanced experimental diagnostics and optical-based or laser measurement techniques such as laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) or planar laser induced fluorescence (PLIF) as examples.
  • A clear understanding of the fundamental physics for combustion and/or multiphase, reacting flows.
  • The potential to initiate, lead, and execute funding opportunities in both internal and external R&D.

Candidates are expected to develop and employ innovative approaches for measurements in reacting flow environments and show a broad understanding of topics related to combustion or fire dynamics, environmental issues, spray atomization, chemical kinetics, and gas-phase or particulate emissions. An understanding of material flammability, high-temperature oxidation of metals or condensed-phase fuels would also be highly desirable.
