This post is full time and has funding for up to 2 years.
In this role, you will make a leading contribution to the EPSRC Funded Open Fellowship, “Inert Atmosphere Automated Synthesis for the Investigation of Nuclear Waste relevant species (DIGINERT)” with Dr Nicola Bell. The projects aim is to make significant advances to the safe digitisation of chemistry under controlled atmospheres with particular application in the Nuclear industry. The role requires skills in the general areas of automation of chemistry, chemical/mechanical engineering, robotics and coding. Candidates with knowledge of chemical synthesis, especially under inert atmospheres, with some experience or interest in coding would also be welcome.
You will build an automated platform to combine liquid and gas handling with sensor integration and safety protocols for the secure handling of highly reactive, flammable and potentially radioactive materials. You will be expected to work with external project collaborators (Sellafield Ltd) and collaborators in the School of Physics (Dr Seitz & Gray). This may include research visits to the Cumbria site and associated research institutes and national labs. You will contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.
Informal enquiries about the role are welcomed, and should be addressed to Dr Nicola Bell (Nicola.Bell@glasgow.ac.uk)
