Location: South Kensington
Starting date: Fixed-term until 31 March 2025
Applications are invited for a Research Software Engineer within the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. This position is in support of a UKRI AI for Net Zero grant (Real-time digital optimisation and decision making for energy and transport systems). The over-arching goal is to develop machine learning methods that are aware of the physics of the problem for the realization of real-time digital twins of engineering systems. Applications involve fluid mechanics and nonlinear partial differential equations.
The role presents an opportunity to actively participate in research, applying innovative technologies to diverse and meaningful challenges in a close-knit and supportive team. It will suit a well-organised and open-minded research software developer keen to participate in this ambitious project in an environment where personal development and proactivity are strongly encouraged.
Duties and responsibilities
You will play a key role in supporting the development of the computational fluid dynamics, the management of the data generated, and machine learning tools which will be at the heart of this project. You will contribute to enhancing the sustainability and maintainability of these tools. This will include promoting research software best practices and providing training for less experienced researchers and engineers. You will also be involved in promoting the work carried out in the project, sharing your knowledge inside and outside the Department, and participating in activities related to software engineering within the RSE community at Imperial and beyond.
- Postgraduate qualification in a computationally-based field
- Experience as a researcher and/or research software engineer.
