Research Assistant at University of Cambridge

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position in metallurgy to join University of Cambridge. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 12 months in UK. The deadline to apply is November 30, 2018.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 12 months in the first instance.

A research associate/assistant post is available funded by the EPSRC/Rolls-Royce Strategic Partnership in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy in Cambridge.

This post is funded by the Rolls-Royce Doctoral Training centre as part of the Strategic Partnership funded by the EPSRC and Rolls-Royce. It combines research into Nickel based alloys for turbine applications with supporting PhD research students funded through the DTC.

The research area of interest is the mechanical properties of single crystal and polycrystalline superalloys for turbine applications and modelling of the relationships between microstructures and mechanical performance. This will involve characterisation using scanning and transmission electron microscopy and physically-based modelling,

The successful applicant will have or shortly obtain a PhD in Materials or a relevant discipline. Experience in alloy characterisation techniques including Scanning and Transmission Electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction and use of various general specimen preparation techniques, together with a detailed knowledge of superalloy metallurgy and processing. The candidate will also need to demonstrate the ability to work closely with students.

The successful applicant will report to Prof. Catherine Rae and the post will be subject to six months probation.
