kamstrup: INTERNSHIP IN FLUID DYNAMICS RESEARCH// 04. februar 2019


Are you fascinated by researching fluid dynamics and new analysis capabilities? Do you want to learn more about the industrial applications of the physics of fluids? Do you want to improve your skills in the use of advanced numerical, experimental and data processing investigation tools in an international business?


Become a part of Group Quality in Kamstrup

Kamstrup is one of the world's leading manufacturers of intelligent metering solutions for energy and water consumption. As an intern, you will become part of the Flow Laboratory team in Group Quality, where you will be included on an equal footing with engineers and researchers, who are dedicated to ensuring the highest accuracy of our water and heat meters. The team has a shared task to maintain and improve the test benches that are used to verify the meters, while conducting far-reaching research on specific fluid dynamics phenomena and research methods. You will become part of a good working environment, where you will have the opportunity to strengthen your personal development as well as professional competencies.


An internship at the leading edge of fluid dynamics research

During your internship, you will conduct a research project that focuses either on the development of new analysis capabilities or on the study of a specific physical phenomenon. The work may preferably transform into a master’s thesis or graduation project. The subject of the research will be selected according to your qualifications, the Flow Laboratory’s needs and eventual requirements of your university.

Possible research fields may be:

  • Improvement of uncertainty quantification and robust optimization techniques using Computational Fluid Dynamics (OpenFoam)
  • Implementation of ultrasound propagation models into existing simulation tools
  • Investigation of thermal flow stratification, mixing, boundary layer transition using experiments and/or CFD
  • Study of jet, their interaction with obstacles and the effect of surface treatments

Your project will cover all aspects of research: identification of the targets, development of an investigation plan, performing of tests (experimental or numerical, in principle using the tools available at Kamstrup), post-processing of the results obtained and presentation of the findings in a scientific paper/report. The report might be considered for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.


Personality matters

We are seeking a student, who is motivated to push the boundaries of knowledge and technology in a rapidly evolving company. You are studying a master’s degree in engineering, physics or similar, and have a good theoretical background in fluid mechanics. Since the internship is well suited for a master’s thesis, you are willing to take responsibility for the research and independently seek solutions to issues that may arise along the way.

As a person, you are capable of working independently with a sense for detail, while being willing to learn and seek sparring with your colleagues. Furthermore, you are open-minded and reliable in your daily work.

Kamstrup is an international company, which means it is a requirement that you are fluent in English – written as well as oral.


We offer you more than an internship

We offer you an exciting opportunity to improve your skills in an advanced research environment with highly qualified colleagues. There will be many opportunities for both professional and personal development as well as seeking inspiration, help and sparring in everyday life. If you are ready, we offer an exciting and inspiring autumn with great challenges.

At Kamstrup, we do very much to encourage the bonding between our interns across the organisation. In addition, we offer you flexible working hours and many employee benefits, among others a great canteen scheme, free fruit, fitness facilities, in-house dentist, hairdresser and a free health care clinic.


Do you want to be a part of Kamstrup?

Please submit your application by using this link. The applications are reviewed on a continuous basis, but you can expect a response within six weeks. Any details about the internship will be individually agreed upon. However, the internship is expected to run from the beginning of August 2019 until the end of December 2019.

Kamstrup is located in Stilling close to Aarhus, and bus number 200 takes you right to the door.

If you have any questions to the internship position, please contact Head of Flow Lab, Martino Reclari on phone +45 89 93 10 00.
