Assoc Research Scientist, Research Scientist I, or Research Scientist II (Aeroacoustics - NCPA)



Job Information


The University of Mississippi's National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA) invites┬ applications┬ for an┬ Associate Research Scientist, Research Scientist I, or Research Scientist II┬ to assume a leadership role as a Principle Investigator within the High-Speed Aeroacoustics Research Group (HSAG) to grow and broaden the aeroacoustics research activities.


┬ 


HSAG has an established track record in the study of dynamic interactions in high-speed flows including fluid-acoustics, fluid-structure, and combustion related problems. Our facilities offer a unique opportunity to leverage multiple measurement techniques simultaneously to explore and refine the understanding of turbulence interactions in complex flows. We are seeking a candidate that can leverage the group's world class research facilities to conduct novel research that will expand the group's expertise in areas such as jet noise, fluid/structure interactions, unsteady combustion dynamics, and/or supersonic multi-phase flows. Other research areas that leverage existing infrastructure will be entertained. The┬ candidate will also have an opportunity to establish good standing with the Graduate School and mentor students in the University's Graduate Program in Aeroacoustics, teaching relevant graduate courses as needed.


┬ 


HSAG is a small group of researchers working in tight collaboration on experimental research activities. The group includes scientist, research staff, graduate students, and undergraduate interns. The work environment is interactive, fast-paced, and engaging. Current research activities are funded by NASA, Army, Navy, and Air Force. Additional information is available at http://www.olemiss.edu/depts/aeroacoustics/.


┬ 


The NCPA is an externally funded research unit of the University. While not a tenure-track position, the research positions in the NCPA do follow a promotion path that is closely aligned with the University's academic ranks (Associate Scientist, Scientist I, Scientist II, Senior Scientist I, Senior Scientist II, Principal Scientist).┬ Currently, one to two years of funding is secure for the new position through HSAG's current research. For promotion, the candidate will be expected to develop and sustain outside funding for research efforts┬ commensurate with their expertise. The┬ candidate will also have an opportunity to mentor students in the University's Graduate Program in Aeroacoustics.



Examples of Work Performed


The candidate shall assume a┬ leadership role as a Principle Investigator within the High-Speed Aeroacoustics Research Group (HSAG) and team with the other researchers to grow and broaden the aeroacoustics research activities at The University of Mississippi.┬ The candidate shall demonstrate excellence in academic research. The candidate shall utilize modern testing┬ techniques to measure and characterize complex┬ flow fields and aeroacoustics related phenomena. The candidate shall interact with external customers and partners to increase research productivity and advance research goals. The candidate shall participate in recognized professional societies commensurate with their expertise. The candidate shall seek to advance HSAG's mission through development of infrastructure, intellectual property, external partnerships, and academic collaborations within the University's best interests. For promotion, the candidate will be expected to develop and┬ sustain outside funding for research efforts┬ commensurate with their expertise┬ and mentor graduate students on related research projects.



Minimum Education/Experience


All Appointment Levels: Demonstrated proficiency in the practice of modern fluid-mechanics measurements (PIV, LDV, LDA, DIC, PLIF, Shack-Hartmann, hot wire arrays, microphone arrays, Kulites, etc.) and familiarity with correlation-based analytical methods (wavenumber-frequency decomposition, POD, wave-packet analysis, array processing, etc.) as evidenced by at least 2 refereed scholarly publications. Eligibility for U.S. Security Clearance.


┬ 


For consideration as Associate Research Scientist: Possession of a Ph.D. in Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Science, Applied Physics, or a closely related field or evidence that a terminal degree will be awarded by time of appointment.


┬ 


For consideration as Research Scientist I: Possession of a Ph.D. in Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Science, Applied Physics, or a closely related field and at least two┬ (2)┬ years experimental research experience in an applicable field.


┬ 


For consideration as Research Scientist II: Possession of a Ph.D. in Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Science, Applied Physics, or a closely related field and at least five┬ (5) years experimental research experience in an applicable field.



Application Procedures


Submit a cover letter, resume/cv, summary of relevant expertise (maximun of 2 pages), electronic copies of 2 refereed scholarly publications authored by the applicant, and contact information for 3 professional references.┬ Combine the documents into two individual documents and utilize the "cover letter" and "resume" upload feature.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
