Job Opportunities

University of Cincinnati Combustion Research Laboratory (UCCRL) invites applications for four research staff positions (research professors, post-doctors or research engineers) and six graduate students. UCCRL actively conducts gas turbine related combustion research. Development and testing is currently and has been supported by major commercial gas turbine suppliers and government laboratories for the last fifteen years. Recently, UCCRL secured a long term (minimum 3-year) major contracts (minimum $1.5 million/year) to assist combustor technology development for advanced low-emission gas turbines.

Areas of interest include:

  • Experimental and modeling efforts to advance liquid fuel spray  break-up and droplet life predictions 
  • Air/fuel mixer predictions, design and characterizations for advanced low-emission combustors
  • Experimental and modeling efforts for unsteady combustion in order to advance design tools for combustion dynamics
  • Advanced combustion diagnostics on realistic gas turbine combustor at high pressures


  • Research Professors:  PhD degree with a minimum 2 years of work experience in combustion
  • Post-Doctoral: PhD degree in combustion-related disciplines
  • Research Engineer and graduate students: A minimum of a BS degree in Engineering
  • US citizen or US Permanent Resident preferred. All positions require strong communication skills, an ability to interact with a range of individuals with diverse backgrounds and strong technical writing and oral presentation skills.

Applications and Inquiries about the position should be directed to Prof. San-Mou Jeng (email: or Prof. Jongguen Lee (email: ).
