Research Associate - Dynamics and Uncertainty

Organisation's Logo
University of Bristol

Job Title - Research Associate in Dynamics and Uncertainty
Job number - ACAD104249
Division/School - School of Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Engineering Maths
Contract type - Fixed Term Contract
Working pattern - Full time
Salary - £33,797 - £38,017
Closing date for applications - 28th October 2019

We are looking to recruit a passionate researcher to join a multi-institution project as a Research Associate, tenable for 1 year with the potential of an extension subject to satisfactory progress and funding availability.

The position is funded by an EPSRC-funded Programme Grant on Digital Twins for Improved Dynamic Design run in collaboration with the universities of Cambridge, Liverpool, Sheffield, Southampton, and Swansea.

The overall aim of the programme grant is to create a robustly-validated virtual prediction tool called a “digital twin” for designing complex structures.

The Bristol component of this project is focussed on the interaction of numerical models and physical experiments in so-called hybrid tests where two substructures (one physical and one numerical) are coupled together in real-time.

This novel approach to testing provides a great deal of flexibility in the design process since it enables poorly modelled (or externally supplied) parts of the structure to be tested physically while retaining the freedom to rapidly change and test different numerical models.

Of particular interest within this testing framework is the investigation and exploitation of nonlinear behaviours and how uncertainties manifest and propagate through the system.

This position is ideal for a researcher with an interest in uncertainty quantification, nonlinear behaviour, and control.

You should have good computational skills (MATLAB and/or Julia are commonly used) and experience of working with experimental data.

You will be part of a vibrant Dynamics and Control research group, working alongside researchers dealing wide variety of application areas.

In addition, there will be regular meetings of the full project team from each of the universities with an emphasis on cross-fertilisation of ideas and collaborative working.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
