REFERENCE NUMBERDEFACTO - ROM
The researcher will join an Applied Mathematics research group at the School of Aerospace Engineering working on the numerical modelling of electrochemical systems. Work to be carried out by the researcher will be in the framework of the European H2020 project DEFACTO (see https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/875247 and https://defacto-project.eu/ for some details concerning the project).
In particular, the researcher will be involved in the development of a time-adaptive reduced order model based on a detailed multi-physics numerical model (to be carried out by another partner in the project DEFACTO consortium). In addition, the researcher will work on the extension of the previous tool to obtain a parameter- and time-adaptive reduced order model to be integrated in an efficient electrochemical cell optimization software.
A challenging job for three years (until June 2023) in an industrial field offering increasing opportunities. The researcher will not only integrate a highly motivated team at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid but also be part of the multidisciplinary DEFACTO project consortium (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/875247), including leading European research institutions in the field.
Salary will be determined according to candidate's CV and salary scales approved by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Gross yearly salary is expected to be around 25,000 euros.
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid supports the Recommendations of the European Commission contained in the “European Charter for Researchers” and the “Code of Conduct for Recruitment of Researchers”.
Interested candidates should submit their Curriculum Vitae, a brief cover letter addressing their motivation and a recommendation letter.
Candidates should provide contact information in order to schedule an interview (short after application submission).
