Internships Available

Project: Experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; image analysis

Facility, Location: HR Wallingford, Wallingford, UK

Date: Between March and June 2018

Duration: 2 weeks

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; and image analysis

Project: Experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; image analysis

Facility, Location: HR Wallingford, Wallingford, UK

Date: Between March and June 2018/p>

Duration: 2 weeks

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; and image analysis.

Brief outlines of tasks: HR Wallingford is a world leading research and consultancy organisation that provides specialist advice and support in civil engineering and environmental hydraulics, and in the management of water and the water environment. We have a two-week internship opportunity on the Hydralab+ EU-funded research project. Based at our Oxfordshire, UK headquarters, you will work on projects in our Fast Flow Facility. You will help us to set up and run scaled model experiments and take velocity and laser scanner measurements. This internship will provide you with a good understanding of the experimental methods used in hydraulic engineering and environmental flows. You will acquire key skills in experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; and image analysis.

Financial support: Travel, accommodation and expenses will be provided through Hydralab+

Requested: CV + short motivation letter and preferred dates

Deadline: 31 January 2018

Project: Particle Image Velocimetry in rough flows

Facility, Location: NTNU, Trondheim, Norway

Date: February – July/August 2018

Duration: 6/7 months

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; Image analysis; Matlab

Project: Particle Image Velocimetry in rough flows

Facility, Location: NTNU, Trondheim, Norway

Date: February – July/August 2018

Duration: 6/7 months

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in hydraulics; scale model tests; sensor calibration; Image analysis; Matlab.

Brief outlines of tasks: You will be involved with setting up an experiment to investigate energy losses in a scaled model of a rock-blasted tunnel. This will include some pressure and Particle Image Velocimetry measurements. There will be a strong focus on sensor testing and calibration as well as image post processing. The main goal of this internship is to gain a good understanding of the experimental methods used in hydraulic engineering and environmental flows

Financial support: Travel costs through Hydralab+

Requested: CV + short motivation letter

Deadline: 21 December 2017 at 12h
