Postdoctoral Research Associate in Phase Field Modelling of Corrosion Fatigue

University of Oxford - Department of Engineering Science

Location: Oxford
Salary: £36,024 to £44,263 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 27th February 2024
Closes: 22nd March 2024
Job Ref: 171348

We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate in Phase Field Modeling of Corrosion Fatigue to join Prof. Emilio Martinez-Paneda’s research group (the Mechanics of Materials Lab) at the Department of Engineering Science (central Oxford).  This post is fixed-term for 12 months and funded by an EPSRC Supergen ORE Hub grant (CF-PREDICT) and the work will be conducted in close collaboration with the University of Strathclyde (Prof. Ali Mehmanparast).

You will run finite element simulations to understand material-environment interactions, with a particular interest in the structural integrity behaviour of offshore wind turbines. As offshore wind farms are reaching the end of their service life (25 years), there is growing interest in developing fundamental corrosion fatigue models that can assist in enabling life-extension decisions. Phase field models for corrosion, fatigue and fracture offer a unique opportunity to tackle this scientific and technological challenge. You will have the opportunity to use commercial finite element packages such as COMSOL or ABAQUS but also in-house or open-source codes such as FEniCS or MOOSE. You will also be expected to take part in collaborative work, take part in the activities of the research group, submit publications to reputed journals and liaise with academic collaborators and sponsors.

You must have obtained or be close to obtaining a PhD in engineering, mathematics, physics, materials science, or other closely-related disciplines. Also, you should have experience in at least one of the following: Finite element analysis, Multi-physics modelling , ABAQUS or COMSOL, Fracture Mechanics, Phase field models, Computational Mechanics

The initial appointment will be for one year but there are opportunities for extension based on performance and/or availability of funding.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Emilio Martinez-Paneda  (email: emilio.martinez-paneda@eng.ox.ac.uk)

Only online applications received before midday on 22nd March 2024 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology
