Research Associate - Modelling of Crack Growth under Fatigue-Oxidation Conditions

A Research Associate is required to undertake an EPSRC-funded project to model oxidation damage at a crack tip and associated crack growth for nickel alloys.

You will join the vibrant Mechanics of Advanced Materials group at Loughborough (www.lboro.ac.uk/moam) which has gained significant experience in the study of mechanical behaviour of advanced materials.

You will have a good honours degree or Master or PhD (or equivalent) in Solid Mechanics /Mechanical Engineering/Applied Mathematics or other relevant discipline. Some experience and a good understanding of plasticity, micro-mechanics, fracture mechanics, fatigue, creep and diffusion are essential. Experience of modelling of micro-plasticity and mass diffusion is desirable.
