Research Technician in Experimental Engine Combustion

 

 

Position Summary:

 

The Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) at KAUST is looking for an experienced Research Technician to join the Center’s world-class team and assist research in Experimental Engine Combustion.  The Research Technician will support research activities within the Center. The position will remain open until filled. The advertised position is full-time and characterized by highly competitive salary and benefits.  

 

This position is very technical and requires a candidate with extensive knowledge of advanced engine test cells operation and maintenance.  The candidate will be responsible for operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of advanced engine test cell and advanced emission analyzers typical of engine test cell.  Performs tasks/projects within a large-scope project, assuring quality, cost-effectiveness and timely delivery.  Work with engine experimentalists and provide technical advice and assistance.  Monitors junior staff to ensure the correct and safe procedures are followed.  Perform other miscellaneous related duties as needed.   

 

 

Major Responsibilities:

 

•     Install test engine and its relevant equipments into test cells and preparing them for a variety of tests. 

•     Operating, maintenance and troubleshooting of advanced engine test cell which includes advanced single cylinder research engines (gasoline, diesel, metal and optical) and advanced emission analyzers typical of engine test cell.

•     Preparation of test engines, which includes mounting, instrumentation (sensors, actuators, etc), changing/swapping parts and performing necessary fabrication.

Competencies

•     Strong work ethic and close attention to detail.  

•     Ability to work independently and as part of a research team.  

•     Excellent English writing, communication and inter-personal skills

 

 

Qualifications:

 

The position requires a Bachelor or Master’s degree (or equivalent)   in Engineering or Physical Sciences.  Applications will be considered in the light of a candidate's ability to meet the following criteria:

  

•     Experience in the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of advanced single cylinder research engines (gasoline, diesel, metal and optical) and advanced emission systems; 

•     Experience with engine emission bench operation, maintenance and measurement techniques (AVL, Horiba, ..etc),  

•     Experience with testing equipment operation, maintenance and measurement techniques (e.g., soot meter, micro-soot sensor, SMPS, …etc),   

•     Experience in specifying, integrating and troubleshooting typical engine test cell such as dynamometer, conditioning units (air, fuel, oil), fueling system, …etc,  

•     Experience in specifying, integrating and troubleshooting sensors and actuators commonly used in engine test cell. 

•     Should be able to utilize INCA ETAS software and combustion measurement technique such as CAS and INDICOM.  

•     Personnel who have good experience in optical engine and optical/laser-based experimental methods or gas analyzing techniques such as GC and FTIR will be favored.  Knowledge of electrical grounding and shielding techniques, programming experience in NI LABVIEW are preferred.  

•     Ten (10) or more years experience in engine combustion in industrial or applied research laboratories.
