Job Description


We are seeking a University Faculty member to collaborate on research efforts for Summer 2018\. The focus of the research will be ultra\-fast laser diagnostics\.

On any given day, you may be called on to:

+ Collaborate with members of technical staff on several ongoing projects
+ Develop and execute experimental investigations in the area of multiphase flows, atomization and laser\-based diagnostics


+ PhD in mechanical engineering or related field
+ Experience in the development of ultra\-fast laser diagnostics for application to multiphase flows
+ Experience in development and application of liquid drop sizing and velocimetry techniques
+ Ability to obtain and maintain a DOE L clearance


+ Current DoE clearance

Department Description:

The Diagnostic Science and Engineering Department \(01512\) develops and applies diagnostics for engineering sciences applications\. We develop the expertise needed to adapt measurement techniques to challenging environments and understand the additional uncertainty which may be introduced\. For model validation, we work in tandem with modelers to design optimum experiments\. We assist data users in interpreting and understanding experimental results\. Finally, we apply our expertise to understand the limitations of any diagnostic and the experimental uncertainty of the resulting data\. The department is engaged in experimental activities in fluid mechanics, multiphase and reactive flows, rheology, shock science, and the thermal, chemical and mechanical characterization of materials, including polymeric and energetic materials\. Our efforts are focused on \(1\) development and application of advanced diagnostics, \(2\) conduct of fundamental experiments to unravel unresolved phenomenology and to characterize material properties and material response, \(3\) design and performance of validation experiments supporting the Center's code development efforts, and \(4\) experimental support for weapon qualification/certification\. The department has responsibility for the operation of thermal/fluids laboratories, pilot\-scale multiphase flow test\-beds, full\-field measurement of material response and material characterization \(DIC\), and rheological characterization facilities\.
