Stability and Sensitivity Methods for Flow Control and Industrial Design (SSECOID) is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the grant agreement No 955923.
SSECOID consists of 11 host institutions (employing Early Stage Researchers) and 4 partner organizations (offering secondments and training) from seven different countries (Spain, UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, United States), and from both sectors - academic and industrial.
Early Stage Researchers (ESR) employed within the project will undertake individual research projects leading to a PhD degree - awarded by the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London - and benefit from the training network. McLaren Racing Ltd offers two fixed-term (3 years) ESR positions:
The work place will be part time at Imperial College London, in the Aeronautics Department, and the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC) in Woking. Short secondments to network partners are also to be expected.
Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
Strong mathematical background, in particular linear algebra, partial differential equations and Finite element/high order numerical methods. Experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics, numerical methods, development and use of simulation tools and programming languages (C++, python) is highly desirable. An interest in Race car Aerodynamics would also be favourable.
Candidates can be of any nationality. The candidate must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies) in the United Kingdom for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the recruitment date.
Applicants must be in their first 4 years of their research career and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree. The 4 years are counted from the date a degree which formally entitles to embark on a doctorate was obtained.
The students will be employed for 36 months by McLaren Racing. The salary level will be according to Marie Curie Skłodowska call rules, including family allowance (when applicable). All contracts will include Social Security coverage and benefits according to national laws.
All employees must ensure compliance with the Company Health and Safety Policy, and all relevant other statutory Health and Safety legislation.
