The Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERIAN) invites applications for the position of Research Fellow.

As a part of the LCER project on Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC), NTU together with Chiyoda Corporation are seeking for a top researcher with good experience on CFD simulation and 3D Cad drawings.

The project aims to develop a cutting-edge technology for next generation LOHC plants which will contribute significantly to decarbonize the energy sector and help Singapore to be at the forefront of technology development.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Actively participate in research and development in selected areas across thermal energy systems, for instance in areas that can include Fluid Dynamics, Heat/Mass Transfer and numerical simulation.
  • Carry out numerical simulation of thermo-mechanical processes in heat recover and thermal storage
  • Carry out numerical simulation of coupled fluid and heat flow (multiphysics) in complicated geometries
  • Develop turbulent flow models for particular applications and use HPC for computer expensive studies
  • Support writing project progress reports, prepare presentations in official and internal technical meetings, preparation of seminars and workshops
  • Candidate will also be responsible for summarizing and reporting the CFD Modelling results, and make recommendations to other researchers in the group and project management
  • Collaborate in publication of research papers

Job Requirements:

  • PhD degree in Mechanics/Mechanical or Materials Engineering
  • A few years of research or similar engineering experience on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • A good working knowledge of fundamental fluid mechanics, turbulent flows, thermodynamics and heat transfer
  • A good understanding of the principles and application of CFD Experience with commercial CFD software package (COMSOL, ANSYS Fluent, etc) is essential
  • Knowledge in parallel computing and high performance computing is a plus
  • Strong communication skill and ability to work in a diverse, international and cross disciplinary research and development environment
  • Drive for results: Focuses on expedient delivery, to the right level of resolution and quality.
