An experienced researcher is required to work on a European project (PARNAS) funded under the Marie Curie Actions (people) program. Applicants should hold a PhD degree in computational engineering or in a related area, or should have four years of post-degree research experience. To be eligible, applicants must also have been active (work, studies etc) at the University of Southampton for at least one year prior to the commencement of employment. The appointment is for two years.

The successful applicant will be seconded to Free Field Technologies (FFT) based in Louvain-la-Neuve (near Brussels, Belgium) for the first year of the appointment, commencing in 2011. He or she will work with staff at FFT and at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) to assess, validate and develop improved Computational Aero-Acoustics (CAA) tools and procedures for predicting noise propagation in turbofan aircraft engines. Applicants should have a good background in numerical methods and computational engineering. Experience in computational acoustics or aero-acoustics would be an advantage, as would experience in the use of advanced optimisation methods.

The salary of the secondee is fixed at a level set by the Marie Curie scheme (approximately €45,000 p.a. before tax) and an accommodation allowance is payable while living in Belgium.

If you are interested please contact Prof. Jeremy Astley, Director of the Rolls-Royce UTC in Gas Turbine Noise at the ISVR (+44 (0)23 8059 7038,
