The National X-ray Computed Tomography (NXCT) is the National Research Facility for lab-based X-ray computed tomography. We bring together world-leading capability in lab-based XCT from the universities of Manchester, Southampton, Warwick, University College London and Diamond Light Source. The NXCT Hub in Manchester is hosted by the Henry Royce Institute for advanced materials. As the UK’s national research facility, we provide an unparalleled combination of 3D imaging facilities and data analysis, research knowledge and technical experience to support users that have never worked with X-ray scanning before and to help advanced users conduct exciting new experiments. Together, our five partners provide a unique and diverse shared capability to the UK. The NXCT will provide: access to state-of-the-art X-ray instruments; technical support for new and existing users; the expertise to design complex experiments; and the infrastructure and resources to analyse 3D and 4D data.
The NXCT Experimental Officer (Rigs) will focus on exploiting our in-situ rigs and designing and conducting in-situ experiments with users. This role will also include maintenance and curation of our rigs which may also be taken to synchrotron facilities with our permission. We have a large selection of rigs with different functionality from tensile, compression, fatigue and torsion loading. As well as heating, indentation, electrochemical and flow rigs. Some of these rigs can be combined for example to give heating and compression. All of our rigs have compatibility with specific lab instruments and many can also be used on synchrotron beamlines for example at Diamond. NXCT and Royce actively encourage applicants from diverse career paths and backgrounds and from all sections of the community regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation, gender or gender expression.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
