Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Impact and Shock Mechanics

University of Oxford - Engineering Science

Location: Oxford
Salary: £36,024 to £44,263 per annum. Grade 7
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 12th June 2024

We are seeking a full-time postdoctoral researcher to join the Dynamic Behaviour of Materials group at the Department of Engineering Science, Begbroke Science Park.  The post is fixed-term to 31 March 2025.

You will be working as part of a team to develop multi-scale modelling tools for materials under high-strain-rate and impact loading. You will develop and enhance a crystal plasticity formulation within an explicit scheme to account for various strengthening and relaxation mechanisms including slip and twinning, hardening, thermal softening, and rate dependence, amongst others. As part of this role, you will work closely with other researchers to validate these formulations using experimental results obtained from high-rate and shock-compression experiments, helping to improve our overall predictive capability. 
 
You should possess a PhD/DPhil or be near completion* in a relevant subject area. You will have exceptional initiative and the ability to work independently at the highest level, including a demonstrated ability to complete projects and manage your own area of academic research. 
 
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof Daniel Eakins (email: daniel.eakins@eng.ox.ac.uk).
