The University of Lincoln in association with Eminox Ltd.

An exciting opportunity has become available for an experienced candidate to lead and manage a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) funded by Innovate UK. The KTP was awarded to the Sustainable Energy and Power Research Group (SEP), School of Engineering at the University of Lincoln with Eminox Ltd.

The KTP Associate will be the Technical Lead for the 24-month project which aims to develop a combined emissions after-treatment and exhaust heat recovery system for hydrogen and/or ammonia combustion engines , especially for heavy-duty applications, in order to achieve clean emissions and high engine efficiency with zero carbon emissions.

We are looking to recruit a candidate with a BEng and/or MEng in Mechanical Engineering or Chemical Engineering with knowledge of thermofluid fluid mechanics, internal combustion (IC) engine flows and combustion. A PhD in mechanical engineering or chemical engineering is desirable but not essential. Experience in experimental investigation and/or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) numerical simulation to optimize engine combustion processes and reduce emissions would be ideal. The successful candidate will ideally have academic and/or practical knowledge in thermodynamics, combustion, emission control processes or related subjects.

This position will be based primarily at the Gainsborough site of Eminox Ltd, with a dedicated training budget of £4,000 tailored to personal and professional development and the potential for a full-time role within the research team and development of Eminox Ltd. The incumbent will be jointly supervised by Eminox and SEP.

Eminox Ltd is a manufacturer of Exhaust After Treatment Systems (EATS) for heavy duty vehicles, on/off road mobile machinery, rail, marine and power generation applications. Eminox Ltd works in partnership with its customers to create sustainable engineered solutions that meet and exceed the latest global emissions standards. Eminox’s strategy is to develop the next generation of EATS with zero carbon emissions and close to zero NOX emissions for the emerging sector of alternative fuels to electricity.

The SEP research group leads systems thinking and applied research to develop new energy distribution approaches for heat and electricity. As society rapidly moves towards a holistic, location-based understanding of systems using combined demand profiles, our group is leading the distributed generation and local energy management approach being developed in UK and internationally. This reduces net requirements, introducing new technologies around hydrogen and storage in Medium Scale Solutions (MESO) for societal needs, enabling effective user and supplier engagement for truly sustainable solutions.
