A one-year post-doctoral position, renewable for one year, is readily available at Université Libre de Bruxelles and University of Cambridge, in the framework of the ALChEMY (mAchine Learning for ComplEx MultiphYsics problems) project. The position should be filled by January 2020.
The aim of the project is to develop machine learning approaches and reduced-order models in the context of turbulent reacting flows. The final objective of the project is to produce digital twins of realistic combustion systems, that can accurately reproduce the system behaviour in a wide range of conditions without heavy computational burden and ready to use in real-time operation.
The technology targeted in ALChEMY is MILD combustion, as the latter stands as one of the most promising technology to meet future energy challenges. Indeed, MILD combustion represents a very attractive solution for its fuel flexibility and capability to deliver very high combustion efficiency with virtually zero pollutant emissions.
The development of digital twins in ALChEMY will be based on both high-fidelity numerical simulation data (from Direct Numerical Simulation) and experiments, resulting in a unique approach that has not been explored yet for combustion systems.
The post-doctoral appointment will be based on a collaboration between Université Libre de Bruxelles and University of Cambridge. During the project, the machine learning approaches developed at ULB will be extended and adapted to very large DNS data sets. Frequent exchange between the teams Brussels and Cambridge is foreseen, to define and iterate on the definition of the inputs and outputs of the model, as well as to validate the developed model using the numerical simulations produced in Cambridge, and the and experimental data obtained in Brussels.
The selection process is based on two steps:
