Research Associate/Fellow - Modelling the Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) of Polymeric Materials

University of Nottingham - Engineering

Location: University Park

Salary: £26,495 to £38,833 per annum, depending on skills and experience (minimum £29,799 with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance

A position is available for a research associate/fellow to work in conjunction with colleagues in the Schools of Applied Mathematics at the Universities of Birmingham and Warwick on the modelling of polymeric materials via inkjet printing and/or multi-photon fabrication methods. We are particularly interested in modelling the transition from fluid to solid phase (including mechanisms such as diffusion and chemical reaction), reactions between deposited materials and substrates and the post deposition behaviour and properties. It is expected that a range of modelling techniques will be needed to fulfil this brief, potentially including both solid and fluid mechanics, mass transport and the kinetics of reactions.

To undertake this work we seek applications from people with appropriate previous modelling experience and a demonstrated aptitude for analysing complex systems and applying novel multiphysics modelling solutions.

Please direct informal enquiries to Prof Ian Ashcroft ( or Prof Ricky Wildman ( Please note that applications sent directly to these email addresses will not be accepted.

The University of Nottingham is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
