castellgm's picture


The school of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing at Cranfield University, UK, seeks applications for Research Fellows in small scale testing of mechanical properties. This position, sponsored by EPSRC (UK government), seeks to investigate the role of dislocation structures in metallic single crystal upon an overload. You will join a unique research environment that will allow you to perform leading research in mechanics testing. You will interact with researchers working with finite element analysis in order to integrate models and experiments. Additionally, there will be opportunities for personal development and liaison with other universities and industries, particularly Rolls-Royce.



A PhD (or near to completion) in Engineering or Science, with an excellent knowledge of mechanics of materials in metals will be essential for this position, as will experience in performing mechanical tests, preferably at small scale using SEM in-situ stages and experience with materials characterization techniques (e.g., SEM, TEM, EBSD, ECCI.) Experience with fatigue in FCC metals, overloads, and dislocation theory is a plus.

Candidates should demonstrate research independence, possess exceptional motivation and demonstrate organizational and planning skills. A strong track record in research, including publications and conferences papers is also required, as a strong research methodology and communications skills.
