PreScouter is a technology scouting company that works across all scientific disciplines.
PreScouter runs a Scholar Program that provides opportunities for advanced-degree academics to gain industry/micro-consulting experience, and utilize their technical knowledge to address real-life R&D problems. Our Scholars have completed projects for multiple Fortune-level clients, tackling industry problems in a variety of scientific disciplines.
We are currently looking for an applicant to serve as the Subject Matter Expert on a project in Computational Fluid Dynamics. On this role, you will:
- Model the fluid dynamics within a novel rotating hydraulic meter to assess fluid dynamic calculations under a variety of scenarios. Note that while the geometry of this container is fixed, the container will be rotating.
- Act as the scientific interface with the R&D client team, presenting on behalf of your team during each of 1 teleconference meeting (usually scheduled during business hours, CST)
-Use CFD results to Predict and Reduce Minimum pressure/force and flow required to rotate the meter. Build a transfer function/mathematical model to link flow, pressure and inertia forces at various conditions of temperature, fluid phase, and changes in flow rate.
An ideal candidate is pursuing or has completed a PhD or Master's degree a Engineering or Physics, with a specialization in Fluid Dynamics and/or Ultrasonic flow-metering technology.
Proficiency in spoken English and scientific writing are a must. Applicants must be able to commit to the project until completion (~Mid-late August); total anticipated time commitment is ~30-35 hours over that time period. No travel is required, but~ 1-3 client meeting will occur.
