Research Associate in Radioactive Waste Immobilisation and Disposal

University of Sheffield - Faculty of Engineering, Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Location: Sheffield
Salary: £35,333 to £43,414
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 25th January 2023

We have an exciting opportunity to work within the Department for Materials Science and Engineering for a self-motivated researcher looking to make an impact in the field of safe disposal of radioactive waste. You will join the Immobilisation Science Laboratory, as our lead on the EU PREDIS project, which aims to develop effective radioactive waste strategies for waste materials for which there is currently no adequate treatment technology.

Working in a well-connected team, in one of the largest nuclear materials research groups in the UK, you will develop a programme of research designed to increase the technology readiness level of Hot Isostatic Pressing as a thermal treatment technique for the immobilisation of organic and inorganic solid wastes. The research will involve a campaign of synthesis, solid-state characterisation and wasteform durability testing.

Applicants should hold, or be close to completion of, a PhD (or have equivalent experience) in materials science or other relevant discipline. The post holder will have skills and experience related to: radioactive waste immobilization in ceramic / nuclear fuel materials; solid-state characterisation using a range of bulk analytical techniques; and durability testing of glass / glass-ceramic composite materials. Experience with Hot Isostatic Pressing would be beneficial, but is not essential.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
