Swansea University - Engineering

A major new 3-year EPSRC-UK funded project on improving metal detection for the identification of security threats will start shortly, led by Dr Paul Ledger, College of Engineering, Swansea University (SU) in collaboration with Dr Timo Betcke, Department of Mathematics, University College London (UCL) and Professors Bill Lionheart, School of Mathematics and Tony Peyton, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the University of Manchester (UoM).

You will play a key role in this project and will work on the development and implementation of scientific computing algorithms for improving the characterisation and location of hidden conducting security items as well as the improvement of coil arrays. You will primarily work with Dr Paul Ledger in SU, but you will have the opportunity to also work closely with the teams at UCL and UoM, which include other postdoctoral researchers and PhD students working on the project. You will also interact with the project’s industrial partners who will provide input at key stages during the lifecycle of the project. There will be ample opportunity for placements at UoM and UCL as well as attending and presenting at conferences and workshops.

The position will be based in the College of Engineering, which is located in the newly built Bay Campus in Swansea, a £450 million development located next to a beach in Swansea Bay.
