A total of 15 PhD positions are available at 9 universities, 1 research centre and 3 industries, in the framework of the European Marie Curie European Training Network (ETN) SmartAnswer. This project is focused on the development of innovative technologies for flow and acoustic control, in a view to providing better passenger comfort and reduce the environmental impact in air and surface transportation, for quieter domestic appliances and systems on our homes and working places, and more sustainable wind energy production.
SmartAnswer is offering its young researchers an unprecedented training platform combining laboratory experiments, theoretical modelling, numerical simulations and optimization. They will be confronted with the constraints (manufacturing, economic, …) that apply in an innovation process through strong interactions with industrial stakeholders from the aeronautical, automotive, wind turbine and cooling/ventilation sectors.
In that context, the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI) is offering an ESR position for a PhD project entitled "Flow and acoustic control of low-speed cooling fans".
The PhD will be mainly based at the VKI under supervision by Prof. Christophe Schram, and several secondments are foreseen at partner institutions of the SmartAnswer network: at Valeo (France), KTH (Sweden), PSA (France) and CETIAT (France).
The multidisciplinary topics addressed in SmartAnswer are scientifically challenging and of high technological and economical relevance, promising interesting career perspectives in academic and multi-sectorial industrial environments.<:p>
The SmartAnswer partners do strictly adhere to the ethical standards of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/charter). Female scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must satisfy some eligibility rules, in particular in terms of transnational mobility (http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions). A strict equal opportunity, gender-neutral and internationally comparable recruitment procedure is implemented.
