Research Assistant - Mathematical Fluid Dynamics
We are seeking a Research Assistant to join an ongoing research project on a fixed term basis.
The main focus of the role is to use applied mathematics techniques in fluid dynamics to obtain a solution for two-dimensional steady flow past a finite flat plate using a new solution for the Navier-Stokes equations.
In particular, the applied mathematics techniques used will include the Green's integral method, Fourier Transforms, Wiener-Hopf technique, and asymptotics.
You will undertake mathematical fluid dynamics research, reporting directly to the project supervisor, who will direct the research through regular meetings.
You will work within the brand new SSEE building in one of the research rooms and be immersed in the SEE research culture.
In this role you will:
The School of Science, Engineering and Environment
- Conduct mathematical fluid dynamics research as directed to verify a new mathematical theory by application on a benchmark problem.
- Present findings at Conferences and to industry, and publish in journals, to disseminate the research.
- Perform any other duties appropriate to the grade as may be required by the Dean of School/Head of Division etc.
- Engage with the University's commitment to put our students first and deliver services which are customer orientated, represent value for money and contribute to environmental sustainability.
