About the Role

Applications are invited for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to work on an Innovate UK – EU SMART Euraka Advanced Manufacturing grant in the group of Dr Chinnapat Panwisawas. The UK-EU project entitled: “DISTorting The Aerospace Manufacturing Boundaries: OPerational Integration Of Autonomy On Titanium (DISTOPIA)” aims to distort aerospace manufacturing boundaries by developing an automated, cost-efficient wire-fed direct energy deposition (DED) additive manufacturing approach and repairing method – made possible using novel metallic wires with enhanced mechanical properties; combined with implementation of full digital twin model of the process.

The post holder will collaborate with researchers from Authentise Ltd., Epoch Wires, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at University of Sheffield, Turkish aerospace company, to name a few, to explore the cutting-edge technology on digital twin of repair technology for aerospace components.

About You

Applicants should hold a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgy and Materials, or a relevant subject (e.g. Materials Science, Engineering Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, Aerospace Engineering, Physics), or be near completion.

The post will develop rapid thermal-fluid flow modelling to integrate all interfacial phenomena in DED process to correctly capture thermal signature and predict some characteristics of the produced microstructure with predictive capability as a function of process conditions. A strong foundation in computational materials engineering, programming skill and knowledge of the mechanics of materials is essential.
