Date Posted: 12/2/2018

Opportunity Description

Advanced Microcombustion Concepts for Compact Power Sources The Compact Power Team at the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) seeks a post doctoral associate to be part of an ongoing program developing thermal energy conversion technologies for Soldier power generation. The candidate will join a multidisciplinary team of physicists and engineers to explore fundamental research in advanced combustion concepts, high temperature interfaces, and novel heat transfer structures. Candidates should have a strong theoretical and experimental background in fluid dynamics, combustion, and heat transfer. Experience in one or more of the following is desired: numerical modeling of thermal, fluidic, and reaction processes; micro-combustion or catalytic combustion processes and methods; and analytical chemistry methods.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Program that allow senior scientists, faculty; high school, bachelor’s, masters’ and doctoral students, and recent graduates to enhance their science education experience in projects and activities at our Department of Defense (DOD) and other Government and Private Industry customers’ laboratories and research facilities worldwide.

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
