Swiss school seeks professor in experimental fluid mechanics


Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) seeks an associate professor in experimental fluid mechanics with applications in energy technologies.

EPFL is a technical university of engineering and science offering an environment for research cooperation among different disciplines. In January, the school recruited an associate professor in energy within the thermal/fluid sciences including studies in hydropower.

EPFL's Institute of Mechanical Engineering now seeks a faculty member at the level of tenure track assistant or tenured associate professor in experimental fluid mechanics with applications in energy technologies. A particular emphasis is on experimental research in high-Reynolds number flows, with applications to mechanical systems for energy conversion, generation, or storage technologies.

EPFL said research would be closely linked to development of a new EPFL initiative with Switzerland's Canton du Valais that is to range from fundamental science to practical testing of prototype systems in energy technologies such as hydropower.

Applications should include a cover letter, resume, and references, in pdf format to the recruitment Internet site Evaluation of candidates is to begin December 15.
