Salary: Full time starting salary is normally in the range £34,980 to £44,263 with potential progression once in post to £46,974
Contract Type: Fixed Term contract up to February 2025
The successful applicant will carry out research and manufacturing process evaluation to produce structures using powder hot isostatic pressing technology. This will involve performing the following investigations: powder characterisation, microstructural investigations, finite element modelling, and mechanical and functional properties characterisation.
The main duty will be to undertake the work programme as described in the proposal. This will involve characterisation of feedstock powder including flowability, particle size by laser diffraction, SEM Imaging and metallography of samples made using hot isostatic pressing. Samples will be built for optimisation of the porosity and defects and to determine the microstructure/grain structure. This will require the creation of CAD files using Solidworks. To investigate the mechanical and functional properties that have been obtained samples will be produced and tensile tested. The samples will be visually inspection and the dimensions and surface roughness determined. A test report will be compiled. The key activity will be geared towards the production of many samples, which will further be tested externally. Finite element simulation of the process will also be explored.
An ideal candidate should have some or all of the following attributes:
