I am seeking a Research Fellow - Real World Emissions for a world-leader in advanced engineering, research and product testing. This is a permanent position based in Nuneaton, Warwickshire and is offering a competitive salary and benefits.
The main purpose of this Research Fellow role is the formulation and delivery of research leading to the development of new modelling and simulation / co-simulation approaches to prediction of real world emissions.
A key part will involve developing a portfolio of IP and technical skills to provide commercialisation opportunities and supporting the transfer of new RDE competences in to test and engineering business areas.

What You Will Do:
As Research Fellow - Real World Emissions, you will:
- To formulate and undertake novel and innovative early stage research that will develop fundamental understanding of variances in vehicle emissions due to real world driving effects.
- Researching modelling approaches to cumulative predictions of CO2, NOX and particulate emissions that will lead to new and innovative simulation / co-simulation approaches for the prediction and evaluation of real driving emissions.
- To actively develop appropriate external contacts and networks relevant to future collaboration and funding opportunities in this field
To develop proposals for significant research projects which increase the knowledge, understanding and discovery of new explanations, insights, concepts and processes.
- To contribute to the development of research strategies and production of research roadmaps.
- Writing and presenting technical papers at international conferences.
- Technical liaison with partner universities including opportunity to supervise sponsored PhD students.

What You Will Need:
As Research Fellow - Real World Emissions,
- Degree in Mechanical, Automotive or Electrical Engineering (2.1 or above).
- PhD in a powertrain simulation or control and calibration environment.
- Clear understanding of the global legal framework for vehicle emissions certification.
- Clear understanding of the variable aspects of RDE and the associated long term research challenges.
- Strong modelling background in advanced automotive powertrains.
- Good understanding of RDE experimental based approaches.
- Working knowledge of using advanced vehicle modelling environments such as IPG CarMaker
- Proven experience in application of MATLAB/SIMULINK
The following skills are highly desirable but not essential,
- Experience working in automotive industry RandD and/or consultancy in a powertrain and/or exhaust after treatment environment.
- Familiar with automotive systems engineering approaches.

What You Will Get:
As Research Fellow - Real World Emissions,
- Employment with this centre of excellence in vehicle engineering, design, test and development
- Salary of up to £55,000 depending on experience
