Research Associate in Advanced Electron Microscopy of Tunable Materials and Devices

University of Sheffield - Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Contract Type: Fixed Term from 1 January 2017 until 31 December 2018.
Faculty: Faculty of Engineering


A research post is available on microstructural and structural characterisation using advanced transmission electron microscopy. The post is focussed on the characterisation of thin films and tunable devices for frequency agile electronics. An extensive knowledge of TEM sample preparation and operation is required along with a working knowledge of electroceramics.

You will be expected to work as part of a coordinated team in collaboration with the University of Southampton and will report directly to the management committee led by Professor Ian M. Reaney (Sheffield) and Prof Brian Hayden (Southampton) but will be supervised on a day to day basis to Prof Reaney at Sheffield where the position is located. As this is a collaborative work between Sheffield and Southampton, travelling between the locations will be expected.

You should have completed or be about to complete a PhD in advanced transmission electron microscopy, or a relevant subject area.

You will be expected to prepare data, write reports and papers and present your research at major international conferences.
