Job description

The objective of the study will be the characterization of MILD combustion in semi-industrial systems, with 
the objective of shading light on the nature of turbulence-chemistry interactions in such a regime. The 
research will be rooted on a constructive interaction of experiments and simulations, with the objective of 
advancing our understanding of the physical processes occurring in MILD combustion and to improve its 
numerical modelling.

•	A MSc or a PhD degree in Engineering, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Mathematics, with a focus on 
either chemical kinetics, or fluid mechanics and combustion modelling.
•	A qualification equivalent to first-class honors degree is preferred.
•	A strong mathematical background.
•	Expertise in at least one of the two areas below
o	Experience in experimental methods for thermal system analysis (including experimental design 
methods, flow measurements, temperature measurements, analytical measurements, laser diagnostics, …)
o	Experience in numerical methods, excellent computational skills, experience with C++ programming, 
interest in CFD programming and turbulent combustion modelling.
•	English language is mandatory.

Eligibility criteria

For candidates holding PhD, the following condition applies:
Eligible ESR candidates may be of any nationality but must not, at the time of recruitment have resided or 
carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organization for more than 12 
months in the last 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.

Salary (gross): 34,000 euros for a PhD and 44,000 euros for a PostDoc. 

Selection process

•	Evaluation of the documents provided by the Applicant
•	Interview of each candidate having the eligibility requisites (evaluated through the first step). The 
interviews will be organized remotely via Skype.

List of Documents to be provided:
•	Letter of motivation (approx. 1 page)
•	Copies of degree and academic transcripts (with grades and rankings)
•	Summary of Master's thesis (approx. 1 page)
•	Short CV including a publication list (if any)
•	Two reference letters from academics.
•	Proof of English language skills
•	Passport copy
