Research Associate in Next Generation Fibre-Reinforced Composites

University of Bristol - Department of Aerospace Engineering

Location: Bristol
Salary: £35,333 to £39,745 Per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 7th December 2022
Closes: 8th January 2023
Job Ref: ACAD106498

The role

NextCOMP is a collaboration between University of Bristol and Imperial College London with multiple industrial and academic partners and funded by EPSRC until June 2025. The NextCOMP programme is working on developing the next-generation of fibre composites, with improved compression performance. For this purpose, novel constituents (fibres, matrices) and new architectures are being developed. We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Research Associate to join our large interdisciplinary team working in the emerging field of hierarchical composites developing novel solutions for enhancing the compressive strength of composite materials.

What will you be doing?

You will be based in the Bristol Composites Institute, working alongside other NextCOMP researchers. The research activity carried out by the post holder will involve the design, manufacture and evaluation of novel fibre-reinforced composite materials for the improvement of compressive strength. As well as having access to the excellent facilities in the Bristol Composites Institute, the post holder will have opportunities to actively collaborate with Imperial College London and the National Composites Centre, who are both partners. The post is offered on a full-time open-ended contract with funding initially up to 30/06/2024 with the possibility of this being extended.

You should apply if

You are a creative, independent, collaborative engineer with strong expertise in composite manufacturing and processing, and experience in characterising mechanical performance of composites (in particular under compression) and you should also have deep knowledge and understanding of composites mechanics. You have, or expect to receive a relevant PhD and want to tackle a challenging, multi-disciplinary, industrially- relevant project at the forefront of composite materials engineering.
