The University of Strathclyde in Glasgow possesses a large internationally rated Engineering Faculty with a proud history of successful joint ventures with industrial and enterprise partners. As part of the University’s strategic development the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland has been established.

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) is a bold and ambitious industry-centred project to create an international centre of advanced manufacturing expertise and excellence where industry, academia and public-sector support agencies work together to transform skills, productivity, and innovation, making Scotland and the UK a global leader in advanced manufacturing.

The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC), encompassed within NMIS, situated at Inchinnan near Glasgow’s International Airport is a world leading research facility for forging and forming technologies. The AFRC is seeking to appoint a Laboratory Technician to support the operation of specialised equipment within its Residual Stress Measurement Laboratory. Recently the Centre has invested over £1m in residual stress measurement equipment and is rapidly developing a team who specialise in this area. You will be primarily responsible for the set-up, operation and maintenance of the existing equipment used for delivering industrial and academic research programmes on residual stress and materials characterisations related to forging and forming of metallic materials and alloys.

To be considered for this role, you will be educated to a minimum of HNC level, or equivalent; or with relevant work experience preferably with metallic materials and alloys and you will have an interest in manufacturing processes in an area relevant to the AFRC. You will have knowledge and experience of undertaking experimental activities as well as reporting and interpreting data and results. You will have excellent troubleshooting skills, including a methodical approach to solving complex problems, with limited guidance. You will have an ability to work autonomously, prioritising and coordinating your own workload and making decisions with minimum supervision in order to meet project deadlines and you will have the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

Previous experiences of measuring residual stress with one of the destructive (e.g. hole-drilling) or non-destructive (e.g. XRD) techniques, or experience of materials characterisation, are highly desirable.
