Job Opportunity R&D Engineer / KTP Associate position Farrat Isolevel Limited

Salary: £30,000 - £35,000 per annum

Duration of contract: 30 months

Hours: Full time

Contract type: Fixed Term

Closing date: 7th November 2021


Based in Altrincham, Cheshire


In collaboration with Farrat Isolevel Ltd, the University of Salford has been awarded a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP). The project’s aim is to develop and implement a vibro-acoustic simulation strategy that integrates experimental measurements and numerical models, all within a mixed fidelity framework. The project follows on from a previous KTP project between Farrat and the University which embedded a vibration and structure borne noise tool within the company based on cutting edge research by the academic team. The intention is now to further develop the prediction tool to allow measured and modelled data to be combined for the prediction of vibro-acoustic performance. Based primarily at Farrat Isolevel offices in Altrincham, Cheshire (WA15), the successful applicant will manage the project supported by experienced staff from both Farrat Isolevel Ltd and the University of Salford. Farrat Isolevel Ltd are a family owned and operated business supporting the construction, industrial and power generation sectors by providing products and solutions for vibration control, thermal isolation and precision levelling. The past few years have shown outstanding performance and an unprecedented level of growth for Farrat in part due to the success of the previous KTP. This KTP will further enhance Farrat’s offering to customers by establishing turnkey solutions for the design, materials supply and installation of noise and vibration solutions with a hybrid measurement/modelling approach developed at the University of Salford during a recent EPSRC project. Excellent training and career progression are available for the right candidate. The Academic team at the University of Salford will be led by Dr Andy Elliott, Reader in Vibro-Acoustics & Experimental Methods from the School of Science, Engineering and Environment. Joining the academic team is Dr Joshua Meggitt, Lecturer in Acoustical Engineering.
