    A position is available in the beautiful coastal city of Genova (https: // en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genoa) in the frame of the EU project POLKA (POLlution Know-how and Abatement), a multi-site Early Stage Training Program headed by Keele University (UK) and involving academic and industrial partners in Europe and India. The Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to be employed is expected to carry out theoretical and numerical research on thermo-acoustic instabilities within model combustion chambers of gas turbines, using tools such as hydrodynamic stability theory, adjoint-based analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics. More information on the Polka project is available on https: // www. polka-eu.org/project-consortium/keele- uni.htm

    The ESR to be recruited for a period of seven months is expected to have a M.S. degree (or to be enrolled in the final year of a M.S. degree program) from a leading university in applied mathematics, physics or engineering. At the time of recruitment by UNIGE the ESR should be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. The appointed researcher must not have spent more than 12 months in Italy in the 2 years immediately prior to recruitment.

    Employment contract is offered for seven months, with competitive salary.
