A PhD position is available, in the framework of the European Marie Curie Research Training Network project AETHER (http://www.cerfacs.fr/aether), focused on the development of innovative prediction, diagnostic and control techniques for thermo-acoustical and aero-acoustical problems.
The candidate will perform most of her/his research activities in the Laboratory of Thermofluids, Combustion and Energy Systems of the IN+ Center for Innovation, Technology and Policy Research at Instituto Superior Técnico, in Lisbon (Portugal) http://LTCES.dem.ist.utl.pt/, and may be called to perform short-term and/or long-term secondments across the AETHER network to fulfil her/his training and research activities.
The research activities are focused on the thermo-acoustic characteristics and acoustic coupling of very small flames (compact flames) anchored on perforated metal burners, as they are present in commercial burners for industrial water heater units or domestic appliances.
Salary: according to the EC Marie Curie RTN scheme for Early-Stage/Experienced Researchers, plus extra-legal benefits
