AERO-CORE research projects

Open MSc and PhD Opportunities

Energetic and passionate Masters and PhD students are sought to join the Aerospace and Compressible Flow Research (AERO-CORE) Group at the University of Calgary. These are fully funded positions and research projects will focus on problems related to high-speed propulsion and high-speed aerodynamics for rockets and aircraft. Flight tests, engine test cells, rocket static firings, shock-tunnel tests, wind-tunnel tests, computational fluid dynamics simulations, multi-disciplinary design optimization, and theoretical analyses will be used as research methods. You will be joining a large, vibrant, and experienced research group that has a mission of bringing vehicle concepts to flight. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Johansen directly at and include a resume/CV and a cover letter that describes your ideal research project.
