1 fully-funded Ph.D. position is available in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University in the area of rotorcraft drone aerodynamics starting Fall 2022. The Ph.D. student will be working on an US Army funded project to investigate aerodynamic interactions of a counter-rotating coaxial rotor with a ground plane.
The student will be responsible for design and implementation of the experimental setup and all aspects of data acquisition, analysis, and dissemination. This new project is complimentary to ongoing work at Auburn University on rotorcraft aerodynamics.
For this position, background experience in experiments or hands-on work is strongly preferred. Applicants should have a fundamental background in fluid mechanics and/or aerodynamics in general. Working knowledge of data acquisitions (DAQ) systems (National Instruments DAQ and LabVIEW), computer-aided design software (SOLIDWORKS, CATIA etc.), and knowledge of software MATLAB and Tecplot. Applicants should be highly motivated and passionate about conducting Ph.D. research. Applicants with an MS degree are highly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should email their applications with their CV, Transcripts, any previous publication(s), GRE scores, TOEFL score (if required) to Vrishank Raghav (email@example.com). A video conference interview will be conducted soon thereafter.
Selected candidate(s) will receive an application fee waiver.
