The candidate will work in the context of a recently created spin-off company which aim is the development of prototype devices. Therefore, materials engineering is the keyword, high TRLs the path and a breakthrough device the objective.
The main responsibilities of the position comprise instrumental developments, experimental determinations of phase transformation subjected to thermomechanical treatment, and in situ characterizations of structural evolutions in steels. The experimental data will be interpreted along with computational results to reveal physical mechanisms leading to phase transformations in ultra-high steels, yet, highlighting future developments for UHS.
Postdoctoral research scientist with a strong background in the application of X-ray diffraction (XRD) to materials analysis. You will apply a novel, high-resolution, non-invasive XRD technique to the analysis of cultural heritage artefacts, leading several measurement campaigns at the Diamond synchrotron, and will be responsible for analysing the resulting data. The project is an EPSRC-funded multidisciplinary collaboration with the Centre for Archaeological and Forensic Analysis, Cranfield University, and the post will involve travel to Swindon, the Diamond Light Source near Oxford and to other project partners.
