Research Associate in Mesoscopic Modelling for Bioinspired Nanomaterials

University of Edinburgh - School of Engineering

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh to work in collaboration with three other research associates on a project funded by EPSRC to enable larger-scale manufacturing of tuneable nanomaterials using an eco-friendly “green” Synthetic Biology approach.

The PDRA will contribute to this project through lattice-Boltzmann simulation studies of particle growth, aggregation and break-up in sheared suspensions. They will work closely with colleagues working on experimental measurement of reactant clustering, and on molecular modelling of cluster formation.

Candidates must have, or be about to obtain, a PhD degree or equivalent in a mathematics, physical science, or engineering discipline. The candidate must also have demonstrable analytical writing experience and a good publication record. The ability to work independently as well as within diverse project teams will be essential. Research experience with the lattice-Boltzmann method is crucial.

You will join an internationally leading research team in the field of bioinspired nanomaterials, and work closely with groups at The University of Edinburgh, the University of Sheffield and the University of Strathclyde. The opportunity to undertake travel to collaborating institutes and for conference presentations will be available. This role is fixed term for 24 months.
