This is an exciting opportunity to join our diverse team which is internationally renowned for research in Microwave Processing of materials. We are looking for a research fellow, associate or assistant whose expertise and skills lie in electromagnetic modelling and simulation. We are seeking applications from people whose backgrounds, experience and identity broaden and enhances the diversity of our existing team. Our Faculty is committed to creating opportunities for people traditionally underrepresented in Engineering.

The candidate should have a first degree and/or MSc, for assistant role, or PhD in electrical & electronic engineering or related field, or near completion, for associate/fellow role. Please see separate role profiles according to level. The candidate needs to have experience in electromagnetic simulation using numeric tools such as COMSOL, CST, ANSYS or others.

You will contribute to electromagnetic engineering, modelling and design aspects to a highly multi-disciplinary team working to develop microwave-heating based platform technologies with the potential to access a wide range of markets across sectors as diverse as steelmaking, nuclear, food, catalysis and energy. These applications have significant promise at a small laboratory scale with over 2000 journal papers published annually by global researchers. However, few if any, practical applications of microwave technology exist at a commercial scale. You will be supported to work on the electromagnetic design and scale-up of platform heating technologies across a range of applications including both pilot plant and industrial based work across a range of end-users.

We are seeking innovative thinkers from a broad range of experiences and backgrounds and significant training and support will be offered to help you develop any new skills which are required. You should also have an enthusiasm to develop your expertise in electromagnetic engineering and process simulation to produce high-quality journal publications. .

This role is available on a fixed term basis to 31st December 2023. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours); however, applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 18.13 hours per week). Please specify in your application if you wish to work part time and the number of preferred hours. Arrangements for job share would be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Jose Rodriguez, email: jose.rodriguez@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email addresses will not be accepted.
