Qualification Details

Applicants must have:

  • A PhD or equivalent research qualification within the subject of the position.
  • Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
  • Experience and knowledge in laser-based combustion diagnostics for measurements of species concentration, and temperature.
  • Experience from research related to gas turbine combustion
  • Ability to plan and execute research projects in an independent way and with external partners
  • Experiences from safety work related to the work description

Assessment criteria and other qualifications

  • A good ability to develop and conduct high quality research.
  • Teaching skills.
  • Experience of research work in close collaboration with industries and measurement campaigns in industrial environments.
  • Experience of collaboration with other scientific disciplines such as with CFD-specialists.
  • Experience of work with plasma applications.

The research is in many aspects interdisciplinary and therefore a broad competence and experience from relevant areas of physics, spectroscopy and combustion are valuable. Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant’s experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The main duties involved in the researcher posistion is to conduct research. The purpose of the work is to develop and apply different laser-based techniques for studies of turbulent combustion with strong connection to practical stationary combustion and with strong industrial relevance. The main techniques involved are laser-induced fluorescence for species detection and particle image velocimetry for flow velocity. The activities will be fundamental studies of these techniques as well as application together with external parties, e.g. different industries. Parts of the work will be in close collaboration with other scientific disciplines, for example specialists within CFD-modelling. In the work also safety work in the Division will be included. Teaching will be included up to 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning. Work duties also contains supervision of Master students and PhD students, active seeking of external funding and administration coupled to the mentioned work duties.

About the Department

The Department of Physics is with a staff of about 350 scientists and educators one of the largest departments within Lund University. There are seven research divisions and a number of research centra within the department. The research activities at the department cover a broad spectrum of modern physics.

The Division of Combustion Physics has during several decades built up a world leading activity on the field of laser diagnostics of combustion processes. The activities involve both development of a more fundamental understanding of the underlying physics of the techniques to be used as well as pure applications for measurements known accuracy and precision, e.g. for species concentration as well as temperature determination. Of essential importance for the activity are the techniques that shall be used for studies of turbulent combustion in general and gas turbines in specific. In order to strengthen the activities in this field we announce for a researcher.
