Qualification Details

  • A background in aerospace or mechanical engineering with experience in aeroacoustics.
  • Skills in high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics and the ability to use high performance computing (HPC) facilities would bring added value to the role.
  • A compelling vision of the development of sustainable civil aviation and the key role of aeroacoustics in developing advanced air transport systems for future operational scenarios.
  • A strong affinity for working in an academic setting and a commitment to supporting the educational activities of the research group.
  • A preference for working in an environment that is both diverse and international.
  • Excellent communication skills in verbal and written English.

Responsibilities/Job Description

You will support the department's educational mission, specifically contributing to computational aeroacoustics as well as several online MSc courses offered by the aeroacoustics group. As assistant professor, you will perform research in the field of noise control, using a combination of high-fidelity Lattice-Boltzmann flow simulations and artificial intelligence techniques. An important part of your role will involve acquiring funds for research from national and international funding bodies in the areas of sustainable aviation and wind energy with a focus on ultra-quiet, zero-emission vehicles and propulsion concepts.

The Department of Aerodynamics, Wind Energy and Flight Performance and Propulsion (AWEP) is one of four departments composing Aerospace Engineering. Fundamental research is performed in the Aerodynamics section. Aircraft design, propulsion systems and their integration are the main topics in the FPP section. Wind energy systems, from small wind turbines to large offshore farms, are the objective of the research of the Wind Energy Section. The department operates comprehensive laboratories, equipped with modern wind tunnels and state-of-the-art measurement systems.

The Wind Energy Section facilitates the development of wind energy technology and the expansion of the use of wind power through research and education.

In its research activities there is a focus on large multi megawatt offshore wind turbines and offshore wind farms, though urban and airborne wind power is also addressed. Both technology development aspects as well as fundamental aspects are present in the research program. With respect to educational courses, the BSc and MSc level are offered for Aerospace students, SET students and for the European Wind Energy Master (EWEM) students.

The Aeroacoustic group of the Wind Energy section makes use of state-of-the-art numerical and experimental techniques to support the development of know-how and technologies for low-noise wind-turbines and aircraft subsystems.
