Research Fellow in Low-carbon Concrete Technology

UCL - Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering

Location: London
Salary: £36,770 to £44,388 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 12th May 2022

The UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE), is a multidisciplinary department with a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research. The Advanced and Innovative Materials (AIM) Group, an interdisciplinary and industry-driven leading research group in CEGE, is looking for a dynamic and dedicated individual to join a multi-disciplinary consortium sponsored by a multi-million project under the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund to develop novel low-carbon curing techniques. This will then be used to demonstrate how the energy efficiency and decarbonisation strategy can be achieved for concrete industry by adopting low-carbon curing techniques and low-carbon concrete.

The consortium consists of Macrete Ltd, Central Tank Services, Mineral Products Association Ltd (MPA), University College London (UCL) and City, University of London. The post-doctoral research fellow is expected to take the day-to-day leadership of the relevant strand of the project and work closely with other members of the consortium to ensure the successful delivery of the planned work packages. The main focus of the role will be to establish suitable regimes for curing normal and low-carbon concretes using different curing techniques; investigate the properties of concrete manufactured with different curing techniques; and transfer the established optimum curing regimes to industry by working closely with other members of the consortium.

The appointment is available from 1 July 2022 until 30 June 2024 in the first instance.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in cementitious materials/concrete technology and have substantial recent research experience in low-carbon cement/concrete technology. Excellent understanding and experience with accelerated curing or carbonation curing of cementitious materials, and previous research experience in applying microwave curing in cement and concrete, would be an advantage.

If you have any queries regarding the vacancy or the application process, please contact Professor Yun Bai (yun.bai@ucl.ac.uk).

Latest time for the submission of applications: 23:59.
