New Researcher Internships

Internships Available

Project: Ice model scale testing

Facility, Location: HSVA, Hamburg, Germany

Date: Nov 12th- 23rd 2018 or early 2019

Duration: 2 weeks

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in ice research; model scale tests in ice; measurement techniques; practical experience in testing; data acquisition and basic processing

Project: Ice model scale testing

Facility, Location: HSVA (The Hamburg Ship Model Basin), Hamburg, Germany

Date: preferably November 12th- 23rd 2018; alternatively in early 2019

Duration: 2 weeks

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in ice research; model scale tests in ice; measurement techniques; practical experience in testing; data acquisition and basic processing.

Background: The internship is initiated as a chance to enhance networking among young researchers and laboratory test facilities within Europe as part of the European Research Project HYDRALAB+. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654110, HYDRALAB+.

Brief outlines of tasks: For a century, the private and independent Hamburg Ship Model Basin HSVA has been at the forefront of hydrodynamic research. HSVA has been operating ice research facilities since 1972. The main feature is the 78 m long, 10 m wide and 2.5 m deep ice model basin where the performance of ships and structures is assessed through scale testing with models.

A typical operational case of vessels sailing through broken ice channels is modelled by accumulating small pre-broken ice blocks (so called brash ice) along a track in the basin. The offered internship is related to model scale testing in these conditions. The tasks include: ship model and ice condition preparations, and assisting in the tests by conducting actual measurements and observations. The internship offers a good possibility to obtain a practical experience in conducting model scale testing.

 

Requirements: Young Researcher employed at a European University (Master student employed as student assistant, PHD-candidate, Post-Doc, other kind of young researcher employment at University)

Financial support: Travel and accommodation will be provided by HSVA through Hydralab+ funding; working hours and insurance are to be covered by the sending institute (University the intern is employed at). A letter of recommendation will be provided as proof for the interns’ future CV. Connection with Industry.

Project: Experimental methods in hydraulics; 

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 2017 - July 2017

Duration: 6 months

Key skills to be acquired: Experimentalmethods 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 2017

Duration: 6 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+;
