Research Assistant in Waste Heat Recovery and Power Generation

Main Advertisement Text

We seek to appoint a Research Assistant within the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science and the Sustainable Environment Research Centre (SERC) to work on a recently funded EPSRC project on waste heat recovery and power generation from medium to high temperature waste heat. The project involves a number of industry partners and the objective is to design, develop and demonstrate an innovative heat to power conversion system that can operate effectively at medium or high heat source temperatures.

The Research Assistant (RA) is expected to have a background in energy or mechanical engineering with a good knowledge and understanding of industrial waste heat, heat exchangers, thermodynamic cycles, heat and mass transfer, instrumentation, monitoring and analysis of complex processes as well as experience in thermodynamic modelling. The RA is also expected to have a PhD in the area of energy and heat and mass transfer or a related field, a postdoctoral or relevant industrial experience. The RA will be responsible for the detailed design of the test facilities required for the investigations, calibration and installation of instrumentation and data logging systems, and the development of system thermodynamic models.

The post is up to 18 months.
