Coventry University has established a significant Research Centre in Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics. The Centre has been in existence for 18 months and has established a solid and active portfolio of projects with substantial external funding success from funders. The Centre focuses on the high value to be gained from linking the applied art of flow measurement with the fundamental science of fluid mechanics and most of our work involves experimental, computational and theoretical foundations.

As part of our research strategy the Centre is now looking for a talented Research Associate to join our team to support the delivery of a growing portfolio of research projects. The post-holder will predominantly assist in the delivery of externally-funded research projects for a variety of UK and international organisations.

With experience in a research environment and a good understanding of research methods with strong experimental focus, you should have a good level of knowledge in fluid flow and flow instrumentation and an ability to apply this knowledge in a multi-disciplinary environment. The post-holder must be comfortable working in a laboratory or industrial environment.

You must have a PhD or have equivalent professional experience in fluid dynamics, applied mathematics, applied physics or a similar discipline. Excellent critical analysis, project management, communication skills and well-developed interpersonal skills are essential, as is the ability to work effectively in a team and on your own initiative. Some of the projects will involve working away from Coventry, with the need to travel elsewhere in the UK and Europe for short periods.

To find out more about our work and to tell us more about how you can contribute, visit our website and register your interest or apply online.
