Research Associate/Fellow in Laser Beam Welding Analysis and Characterisation (Fixed term)

University of Nottingham - Engineering

Location: Nottingham
Salary: £30,487 to £45,585 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 1st December 2023
Closes: 7th January 2024
Job Ref: ENG578923

Applications are invited for the above post within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham. The Faculty of Engineering has an excellent international reputation for high quality theoretical and experimental research. The faculty is also dedicated to equality, diversity, and inclusion; it was the first engineering department in the UK to be awarded an Athena Swan Gold award for advancing gender equality in higher education. Applications from all backgrounds are encouraged. 

The successful candidate will contribute to the development of the understanding of laser beam welding by working closely with industry and academia to develop an industry relevant modelling capability of the manufacturing process including the effects of variation in supply of material.  This model will also involve some quantitative prediction of the evolution of microstructure for widely used titanium alloys to enable a link to weld quality to be developed. 

The successful applicant will work with an established team of solid mechanics researchers at the University of Nottingham. This position offers the opportunity for close collaboration with national and international researchers as well with industrial partners. Indeed, through the project, the successful candidate will work closely with researchers at other institutions. 

 Candidates must have extensive and demonstrable experience in characterisation of Titanium alloys. An appreciation of the complications/nuances associated with laser welding processes is highly desirable. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a good understanding of issues concerning the evolution of Titanium microstructures during manufacturing processes or in extreme environments (e.g., high temperature). They should also be proficient in the use of programming tools (e.g., Matlab and Python) to solve basic numerical and mathematical problems and to analyse experimental data. Candidates are expected to hold (or be studying towards) a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline, ideally in a field closely related to welding or modelling of material microstructures.

Candidates will need to be able to undertake high-quality research and carry out communication and knowledge disseminations activities (which include writing reports writing journal publications, presenting at conferences, and attending networking events) with minimal supervision. 

This is a full-time (36.25 hours), fixed-term post for 2 years. Arrangements for job share may be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Rebecca Shaw, email Rebecca.Shaw1@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.

It is a condition of this post that satisfactory basic disclosure is obtained from the 'Disclosure and Barring Service'.
