Postdoc position at Imperial College London on phase field modelling of corrosion

Emilio Martínez Pañeda's picture

The Mechanics of Infrastructure Materials research group are looking to hire a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to work in the development of new phase field-based models for predicting localised corrosion (pitting and stress corrosion cracking). The work is part of a wider project, led by Dr Emilio Martínez-Pañeda, that builds upon our recent JMPS work (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmps.2020.104254).

The overall project combines experiments and finite element modelling to shed light into multi-physics interfacial challenges in materials engineering and the PDRA is expected to work in close collaboration with experimentalists. The PDRA will have access to state-of-the-art HPC facilities and will also have the opportunity to (co-)supervise PhD and MSc Theses. The initial term will be one year, with the potential to extend the appointment for up to 4 years (the project duration). The start date is relatively flexible, with a preference for the period August-October 2021. Salary: £40,858-£48,340. 

 

Duties and responsibilities

You will be responsible for developing and implementing new multi-physics phase field schemes for predicting localised corrosion (pitting and stress corrosion cracking). You will be expected to develop a sound understanding of the theoretical background and to run calculations to gain new insight into this multidisciplinary (electro-chemo-mechanics) phenomenon. 

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.

 

Essential requirements

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

► COMSOL

► Corrosion damage

► Multi-physics modelling

► Phase field methods
