Christian Moreau, Department of Mechanical, Industrial and Aerospace EngineeringAbout UsThe Thermal Spray and Surface Engineering Research Centre focuses on developing new solutions to the high demand of the industry for advanced coatings with improved resistance to degrading environmental factors such as high temperature, wear, corrosion and erosion, often under severe service conditions.

Roles and responsibilitiesThe Research Associate (RA) will join an ongoing research project supported financially by the CRIAQ and NSERC.

This project aims to develop an improved bondcoat layer to increase the performance and durability of thermal barrier coatings while reducing the manufacturing costs.

In this project, we take advantage of the unique characteristics of the High-Velocity Air Fuel (HVAF) deposition process to optimize the structure and roughness of the bondcoat layers while optimizing their resistance to oxidation.

The selected RA will be responsible for applying CFD approaches to characterize the supersonic gas flow and combustion process as well as heat and momentum transfers to the spray particles in the HVAF process used in this project.

Additionally, the RA will optimize the geometry of the HVAF torch to optimize the characteristics of the spray particles.

  • In particular, the selected RA will : Run CFD models of the HVAF process, develop the appropriate mesh and run simulations in several spray conditions;
  • Support and interact with PhD and MASc students involved in the project;Communicate CFD results and interpretations to the project participants during monthlymeetings;

Draft and review journal articles related to the original findings develop in the project;Draft and review reports to the granting agencies and industrial partners.

Qualifications PhD in mechanical engineering. MASc with experience in application of CFD tools in researchprojectsSolid experience in modelling thermal spray deposition processes and, in particular, combustionprocesses such as HVOF or HVAF.

Solid organizational skills and ability to handle multiple inquiriesAbility to operate effectively with students, professors, industrial professionalsStrong oral and written communication skillsHighly developed sense of professionalism and ethics All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply;

however, Canadian and Permanent Residents will begiven priority.Advantages Hourly wage ranging from $26.68 to $36.94 according to education and experienceNormal working hours : 9 a.

m. to 5 p.m. (flexible)Hybrid work (in person 3 days and from distance 2 days) If you are interested to this position, please send your CV by email to Christian Moreau by March 31, .

Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.The position is subject to all conditions outlined in the CARE collective agreement Information about the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science The Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science is ranked among the top 10 engineering schools in Canada.

The School is home to over 10, engineering and computer science students and a faculty complement of faculty members. The School has about 4, graduate students enrolled in 35 graduate programs.
