Applications are invited for a 36 month Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position within the UTOPIAE Marie Sklodowska Curie Research Training Network, to work on robust design of a shock bump for natural laminar flow over a wing. Additional information is available from UTOPIAE (Uncertainty Treatment and OPtimisation In Aerospace Engineering.

The position opened at DLR’s Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology in Braunschweig is aimed at robust design of a shock bump for natural laminar flow over a wing. The objective is to further develop and use robust and reliability-based optimisation techniques to design a shock bump that is less sensitive to small random changes in onflow conditions (operational conditions) and geometrical uncertainties, like manufacturing tolerances or degradation, in order to maintain natural laminar flow (NLF).

Applicants are required to meet Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher eligibility criteria. You can be of any nationality but must not have resided in Germany for more than 12 months in the last 3 years immediately prior to commencing in the role, and you must not have been awarded a Doctoral Degree. Applicants must be in the first four years of their research career. A more detailed summary of the eligibility criteria can be found here.

The successful candidate will receive a financial package consisting of a living allowance, a family allowance (where applicable) and a mobility allowance, according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs).

Planned Secondments: INRIA and Airbus

All applications should be emailed (please mention our job offer ESR15 in the subject) to apply@utopiae.eu by Sunday, 16 April 2017

Benefits

The successful candidate will receive a financial package consisting of a living allowance, a family allowance (where applicable) and a mobility allowance, according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs).
