Project description

The University of Kent is seeking to appoint a KTP Associate in Software Development to undertake a KTP project entitled “Development of an advanced flow converter”. The post-holder will play a key role in our plans to develop an advanced digital signal processing methodology to improve flowmeter performance. The post-holder will work closely with the academic and industrial teams to evaluate the existing Coriolis flow measurement technology and then develop software to be used in an advanced flow converter for single phase and multiphase flow measurement. The project will involve the design and the implementation of novel digital signal processing algorithms in addition to experimental tests on flow test rigs. The performance and operability of the advanced flow converter will be evaluated under real-world conditions. The post-holder is expected to have a strong, relevant background, demonstrated by a track record of academic achievements and successful completion of previous projects. Good communication and team-working skills as well as a good undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline are essential.
This is a 2 year fixed term post, with the possibility of a permanent position at KROHNE Ltd after the KTP project.
