Applications are invited for this full-time, fixed-term post, working in Bangor University’s Nuclear Futures Institute as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Functional Materials for Radiation Hard Sensors.
The scheme has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government. EU Funds: Investing in Wales.
The ability to sense the radiation emitted by nuclear decay and during the operation of nuclear reactors is crucial to the nuclear industry. Through this project research will be conducted to create the next generation of radiation sensing materials. Additionally, there will be the opportunity to develop sensors for other signals such as temperature and pressure which can be deployed in many contexts from the harshest radiation fields (e.g. in-rod sensing for reactor cores) to medical imaging.
Duties will include planning / conducting / analysing results surrounding the synthesis of materials for sensing applications in the nuclear industry. They will also be expected to collaborate with the wider community to ensure best-practice and research relevance is maintained.
Candidates should possess a PhD (or be near completion) in a relevant area (e.g. materials science in glass/ceramic processing), although equivalent industrial experience may also be considered. The candidate should have a good track record of academic writing and contributing to publications for peer-reviewed journals.
The successful candidate will be expected to commence as soon as possible and the post is available until 31st March 2023.
Informal enquiries are welcomed and should be directed towards Dr. Michael Rushton: firstname.lastname@example.org
