University of Edinburgh (Scotland)

Department: Dandidrone Project

Position: Post-Doctoral Researcher (Multiple Openings)

Description: We are recruiting a postdoc at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) to investigate the fluid mechanics of free-falling bodies in turbulent flows. The post holder will have specialist expertise in either computational or experimental fluid dynamics. The position is available on a fixed term basis for up to 24 months. 

 

This bio-inspired project aims to investigate the unsteady aerodynamics of centimetre-scale wings to underpin the development of flying sensors that remain airborne transported by the wind. In the next decade, distributed sensor network systems made of small flying sensors, from dust-scale to insect- scale, will enable a step change in monitoring natural disasters and remote areas. They will contribute to protecting the environment by providing data on the contamination of physical and biological systems and on the impact of human activities. To date, a key limitation of this technology is that small sensors can remain airborne only for a few tens of minutes. By contrast, some natural flyers such as the dandelion fruit, travel unpowered for days and hundreds of kilometres. Our previous work (Cummins et al, Nature 2018, doi.org/10.1038/s41586-018-0604-2), revealed that the dandelion adopts a highly porous wing to form a separated vortex ring and decrease its terminal velocity. However, the aerodynamics of the free-falling dandelion while transported in a turbulent wind remains mostly unexplored. This five-year project aims to unveil the underlying fluid mechanics mechanisms that allow the dandelion and similar bodies to remain airborne scavenging wind energy.

The post holder will join a team of two postdocs (Research Associates) and four PhD students working within the same project and will undertake either computational fluid dynamics simulations with OpenFOAM of free-falling bodies, or particle image velocimetry of free-falling bodies in a bespoke vertical wind tunnel.

Department: Dlott Laboratory 

Position: Post-Doctoral Researcher (Multiple Openings)

Description: The Dlott laboratory at the University of Illinois (UIUC) needs talented postdoctoral researchers in experimental chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering or aerospace engineering. The Dlott group has pioneered new experimental methods that use a pulsed laser to launch small hypervelocity (0-6 km/s or 0-Mach 20) projectiles to study hypervelocity impacts with very high time and space resolution. The primary areas of interest are materials under extreme conditions (defined as pressures up to 50 GPa and temperatures up to 6000K), energetic materials and materials for hypersonic vehicles.

These research areas ordinarily involve large-scale, low-throughput facilities to produce extreme conditions, but the Dlott laboratory has developed methods that can be used for high throughput experiments on a tabletop. Due to the high throughput and large data acquisition rates, these experiments are especially conducive to machine-learning materials discovery techniques.

Post-Doctoral Researcher


University of New Hampshire

Department: Ocean Process Analysis Laboratory

Position: Postdoctorate Researcher

Description: As coastal sea-levels rise, flooding will increasingly impact coastal communities. The NSF funded EPSCOR project, the Community-Driven Coastal Climate Research & Solutions for the Resilience of New England Coastal Populations, seeks to help communities manage the increasing environmental risks caused by a changing climate.

As part of this project, the Ocean Process Analysis Laboratory and the Institute for Earth, Ocean and Space at the University of New Hampshire is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to research the linkages between shelf-scale sea-level, surface wave and wind fields and coastal flooding on a human scale. The goal is to downscale the prediction of shelf-scale and climate-scale coastal models to the human scale of harbors and neighborhoods and to assist in the development of machine learning models to link large scale forcing to human scale environmental stressors.
The term of this project is 2.5 years (1 year term with possibility of renewal). The focus of this project will be the high-resolution modeling that links shelf scale forcing to human scale sea-level predictions, the validation of that modeling, and the use of machine-learning tools to predict sea-level and other environmental stressors from larger scale models. Experience in physical oceanography and numerical modeling are required. Experience with unstructured mesh numerical models and machine learning would be helpful. Expected duties include submission of results for publication in refereed journals, documenting modeling code and products, and collaborating with other researchers in this project at Brown University, the University of Rhode Island, the Gulf of Maine Research Institute and elsewhere to further the goals of this project.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) - University of Cincinnatti

Description: The REALIZE-2050 REU Site at the University of Cincinnati (UC) is an interdisciplinary research training program to accelerate technology innovations for meeting the U.S. net-zero carbon emissions target by 2050. Climate change is the defining issue of our time, and CO2 emissions are a major catalyst of climate change that cannot be mitigated by any single strategy alone. This ten-week NSF REU program will expose 10 undergraduate students each summer to cutting-edge research in energy efficiency, industrial electrification, energy storage, low-carbon fuels, renewable energy, and carbon capture/utilization.

Students will work closely with 12 world-class faculty mentors across five departments and two colleges and in UC's state-of-the-art research facilities to address fundamental research challenges in decarbonization of energy generation, manufacturing, infrastructure, and transportation and gain a holistic understanding of the global challenge of mitigating climate change. In this learner-centered program, students will be introduced to convergent research approaches, research multiple facets of the decarbonization technologies, and assess the technological maturity, feasibility, and impacts of emerging alternatives. Leveraging UC's location near the center of U.S. manufacturing investments, the integrated cohort activities are designed to raise students' awareness of industrial decarbonation efforts through manufacturing innovations. Participants will report their findings through podcasts designed to broaden public understanding of the role of scientific research in decarbonization.

Projects / Challenges

Campus Rainworks Challenge

Description: The Campus RainWorks Challenge is a green infrastructure design competition for American colleges and universities that seeks to engage with the next generation of environmental professionals, foster a dialogue about the need for innovative stormwater management techniques, and showcase the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green infrastructure practices.

“Green infrastructure” refers to a variety of practices that restore or mimic natural hydrological processes. While “gray” stormwater infrastructure is largely designed to convey stormwater away from the built environment, green infrastructure uses soils, vegetation and other media to manage rainwater where it falls through capture and evapotranspiration. By integrating natural processes into the built environment, green infrastructure provides a wide variety of community benefits, including improving water and air quality, reducing urban heat island effects, creating habitat for pollinators and other wildlife, and providing aesthetic and recreational value. See Green Infrastructure Basics

Stormwater runoff is a significant source of water pollution in communities across the United States. The Campus RainWorks Challenge invites students to be part of the solution today and in the future. Check out winners of the 10th round to see how green infrastructure can be used to better manage stormwater runoff, protect public health and water quality, and build resilient communities.
