Senior Research Fellow (SRF) — 01 Vacancy - Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee

Applications are invited from Indian nationals only for project position(s) as per the details given below for the consultancy/research project(s) under the Principal investigator (Name: Krishna Mohan Singh), Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee.

Title of project: Large-eddy simulation of flow instabilities in hydraulic turbines at off-design operation Sponsor of the project: CPRI (Ministry of Power), Bangalore

Project position(s) and number: Senior Research Fellow (SRF) — 01

B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering/Production Engineering and M. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Fluid/Thermal/Turbomachinery/Applied Mechanics. Candidates must have qualified GATE.

(a) For SRF, candidates should have minimum of 2 years’ experience.
(b) For JRF, candidates awaiting results for the 4th semester of the Master’s program are also eligible to apply.

The candidates with exposure and interest in fluid mechanics, CFD, hydrodynamic machines, and design and programming software like PRO-E, CATIA, OpenFOAM, and Linux will be given preference. Expertise in C/C++ programming is essential.

Emoluments: Rs. 35,000 per month for SRF and Rs. 31,000 per month for JRF + HRA as applicable

Duration: 1 year 10 months

Job description: The project aims to analyze flow instabilities in Francis turbines during transient and off-design operations using large eddy simulation. It requires development of a computational platform for LES of flow in hydraulic turbines. The SRF would work on development of a simulation toolkit in OpenFOAM for turbine flow and carry out detailed numerical simulations using this tool-kit. The JRF would work on development of an in-house higher order CFD code for large eddy simulation. The JRF would also be responsible for management of the HPC cluster dedicated to the project.
