The Institute of Fluid Dynamics at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) invites for applications for a PhD position in the field of experimental fluid dynamics. The research tasks involve experiments on precessing fluid flows and are essential for the preparation of the large scale dynamo experiment currently under construction at HZDR. Within the project DRESDYN (DREsden Sodium facility for DYNamo and thermohydraulic studies) a liquid metal dynamo experiment is currently being constructed at HZDR, in which a flow of liquid sodium, solely driven by precession will be applied for triggering fluid flow driven magnetic field generation. The PhD student will be responsible for running regular experiments at a down-scaled water precession experiment in preparation for the large scale device. The doctoral student will conduct flow measurements with Ultrasonic Doppler Velocimetry and related measurements of global quantities, like pressure, power consumption and/or torques in order to characterize the behavior of the flow and to scale for the large liquid metal experiment. Further task will be the upgrade of the experiment by assembling a new container at which internal baffles will be mounted in order to increase the forcing efficiency. Intensive cooperation with the project partners at Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum (Prof. R. Grauer), where related numerical models are conducted, is mandatory. The position will be available from 1 July 2019. The employment contract is limited to three years. REQUIREMENTS: * Diploma or M.Sc in physics/mechanical engineering or related subjects with very good marks and a profound background in fluid dynamics and/or magnetohydrodynamics * experience in the operation of experiments, preferably in the field of fluid dynamics * willingness for close cooperation with project partners from Universitaet Bochum who will conduct related numerical studies (includes travel to Bochum 1-2 times a year) * scientific approach to research questions, self-dependent working style and excellent written and oral communication skills in English WE OFFER: * high scientific professional networking as well as scientific excellence * internationality and diversity * interesting and diverse tasks, flexible working hours, salary based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund * equality of opportunity and family-friendly structures, corporate health management * attractive work and research terms in a highly motivated team Kindly submit your completed application (including cover letter, CV, diplomas/transcripts, etc.) by 30 April 2019 via Email to [log in para visualizar] -- Andre Giesecke Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf Institute of Fluid Dynamics -- Magnetohydrodynamics Tel.: +49-351-260 2227
