Research Fellow in Tribochemistry in Challenging Environments

University of Leeds - School of Mechanical Engineering

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in corrosion? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

This role is part of the newly funded EPSRC/BP Prosperity Partnership. Based in the School of Mechanical Engineering, you will work as part of a team of more than 20 researchers across five universities. The focus is on wear and corrosion in upstream and downstream environments.

You will work on an experimental study of tribochemical processes using novel in-situ methodologies. It will provide the reactive kinetics data that is needed for the modelling work which is intended to predict tribochemical film formation rates.

Holding a PhD (or near completion)in a relevant field and with experience of tribology research and AFM or scanning probe methodologies, your drive and enthusiasm will ensure you will make a positive contribution to this highly collaborative, ground-breaking project.
