Postdoc Position in Atom Probe Tomography of Ti-alloys

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship position to join Imperial College London. Potential candidates should apply before January 10, 2020.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position for the study of a range of model Ti-based alloys by high-end microscopy with a focus on atom probe tomography.

This post will be based at Max-Planck-Institut fr Eisenforschung, Dsseldorf, Germany.

Ti-based alloys are used in aero-engines due to their outstanding mechanical properties up to high temperatures. Yet Ti-alloys are often susceptible to failure related to the pick-up of hydrogen or oxygen from the environment during service. Your project will involve advanced characterisation by atom probe tomography, completed where necessary by scanning and transmission electron microscopy, to characterise a range of model alloys to better understand the nucleation and propagation of cracks, and devise alloy design strategies for crack-resistant alloys. This project is part of a collaboration with the groups of Professor David Dye (Imperial College) with whom intense exchanges are expected.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 32,377- 35,466 per annum.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
