The BP Institute for Multiphase Flow in the University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a 5 year senior research fellowship to a candidate involved with research in fluid mechanics, interpreted in its broadest sense. The successful candidate will be free to pursue their own research agenda, with the aspiration that their research will relate to multiphase fluid mechanics. Candidates with interests in Earth Sciences, Applied Mathematics or Chemistry and with skills in theoretical, experimental or numerical approaches to multiphase fluid mechanics are encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will likely have made significant contributions to the subject, with important research papers in high quality journals. Applicants should have both doctoral and some post-doctoral experience and be able to demonstrate good communication skills. The level of candidate sought for this position is comparable to those awarded Royal Society Research Fellowships. A small research fund will be available with the position to help the successful candidate initiate their research.
Although this is a research position, there may be opportunities for the successful candidate to become involved in the teaching activities of the University if they wish.
