Research Fellow in Integrated Intelligent Diagnostic System (EPSRC – EVES) (Fixed Term)

Location:  Brayford
Salary:   From £32,548 per annum
This post is full time and fixed term for 12 months
Closing Date:   Tuesday 28 August 2018
Interview Date:   Thursday 13 September 2018
This is a fixed-term appointment for 12 months, funded by EPSRC. 

Dependent upon the outcomes, the potential of an extension supported by Siemens Industrial Turbo machinery Ltd. exists after a successful completion of the post. 

Applicants are invited for a Research Fellow position at our client’s prestigious School of Engineering, to work on a project “Evolutionary Virtual Expert System” from July 2018 (or as soon as possible thereafter), funded by EPSRC (EP/R029741/1). This project aims to design, implement and evaluate a prototype of an Integrated Intelligent Diagnostic System, which comprise novel signal-processing and modelling techniques, as well as elements derived from industrial expert knowledge..

The post-holder’s primary tasks will be:

  • To gather and contribute to the research of novel signal processing-based fault diagnostic techniques.
  • To collaborate and assist the testing of the novel model-based fault diagnostic techniques.
  • To investigate and integrate the expert knowledge in the system.
  • To prototype and evaluate the developed diagnostic system using real industrial cases. Additional tasks include research project management and reporting to the line manager and industrial partners.

The applicant should possess:

  • A PhD (or be close to obtaining) in Engineering, Computer Science, Maths and Physics or a related area.
  • Experience in Fault Diagnostics or a related subject, using signal processing and machine learning techniques.
  • Knowledge in principles of gas turbines would be an advantage, but not essential, since gas turbine training will be given during the appointment.
  • The selected candidate should be able to present good programming skills in at least some of the following programming languages, e.g. Matlab, C#, R, Python, etc.
  • Candidate should also have good communication skills, and be willing to undertake some of the research work in an industrial environment.
