This is a Marie Curie post-doctoral research position on the Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways project “Mid-to-high frequency modelling of vehicle noise and vibration” (MHiVec). MHiVec is a collaborative project between Nottingham Trent University, the University of Nottingham, the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at the University of Southampton, InuTech GmbH, CDH AG, and Jaguar Land Rover. Candidates will therefore be expected to collaborate with both academic and industrial partners on the project. The post is offered on a fixed term contract for 20 months.
The researcher will work on the development of new integral equation methods for modelling vehicle body vibrations at high frequencies, including the modelling of uncertain structures. Candidates will be expected to have a PhD in a relevant discipline (mechanical engineering, mathematics or physics), along with numerical programming skills in at least one of MATLAB or C++, a good command of English and an enthusiasm for working in an international and inter-disciplinary research environment. Experience in the theory and implementation of boundary integral methods is highly favourable.
