Postdoctoral Researcher in Additive Manufacturing - (1 Year fixed-term contracts)
Salary: €39,138 - €45,090 p.a.
Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in advanced manufacturing to develop specific knowledge in the mechanical behaviour of materials and components derived from additive manufacturing processes. Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to reduce and/or remove many obstacles to realising complex components by traditional manufacturing. However, the resulting parts exhibit different mechanical behaviour to those made by traditional methods. This role will contribute to developing specific knowledge on material characterisation and material models for AM. Candidates will investigate the use of additive manufacturing using numerical and engineering modelling and measurement data to understand the limitations of engineering-level tools and improve our understanding of the behaviour of these materials.
The successful appointee will have: a 2.1 honours degree or equivalent in mechanical engineering; a PhD, or equivalent qualification/experience, in additive manufacturing, solid mechanics, materials modelling, or a closely related discipline; and at least 3 years recent relevant research experience.
