Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Computational Modelling of Superalloys for Additive Manufacture

University of Oxford - Department of Materials

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Computational Modelling of Superalloys for Additive Manufacture. The post is fixed-term for 12 months.

The researcher will work in the Centre for High Temperature Materials in the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford. He/she will be a member of Oxford scientific team in a research project that forms part of a larger programme within the Innovate UK grant entitled “OptAM: Optimisation of Superalloys for Additive Manufacture using Computational Method” in collaboration with OxMet Technologies Ltd. The OptAM project focuses on using high throughput computational modelling techniques combined with advanced metallurgical theory to enable accelerated design of novel alloys optimised for additive manufacture. The postholder will be expected to deliver cutting-edge research on additive manufacturing (AM) process modelling of superalloys and to collaborate with other participants of the programme on a regular basis.

The direct day-to-day supervision of the postholder’s work will be led by Professor Roger Reed (PI and Supervisor) along with Dr Fauzan Adziman (Co-Investigator and Co-Supervisor). Informal technical inquiries may be addressed to: and

The candidate should hold, or be close to completing, a doctorate (PhD/DPhil) in materials engineering and/or materials science or mechanical engineering. Candidates should have excellent understanding of relevant areas of computer modelling and have programming skills: please see job description for full details of selection criteria.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 12 February 2018.
