Post-doctoral Fellow in multiscale topology optimization and additive manufacturing of lattice structures at at HKU

Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in multiscale topology optimization and additive manufacturing of lattice structures in the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (Ref.: 500412), to commence as soon as possible for one to three year(s), with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance. A highly competitive salary (above HK$30,000 per month, low tax rate) commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits.  

PhD/postdoc vacancy (4 years) on development of topology optimization algorithms for functionally graded materials

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing or WAAM techniques are attracting interest from the manufacturing industry because of their potential to produce large metal components with low cost and short production lead time. This process exists alongside other high deposition rate metal AM technologies such as powder and wire based DED. While these use either laser or an electron beam as energy source to melt a metal powder or wire, WAAM technologies melt metal wire using an electric arc.

PhD vacancy (3 years) on mechanical testing of recyclable vitrimer composites

Vitrimers are a groundbreaking development in polymer chemistry. This new class of polymers is neither thermoset, nor thermoplastic, but inherits properties from both polymer classes. Vitrimers were "invented" by Prof. Leibler in Paris in 2011 (

PhD/postdoc vacancy (4 years) on Ultrasonic assessment of the structural health of Lined Pipelines transporting heavy acids

Transportation of heavy acidic fluids is often done with specifically designed lined pipelines. The pipelines typically have an outer steel wall (thickness ~15 mm) and an inner ceramic coating (thickness ~1 mm). The proper functioning of such lined pipelines is almost exclusively determined by the inner ceramic coating. In case there would be a leak in the ceramic coating, the acidic fluid will corrode through the outer steel wall in a matter of hours, leading to a full shutdown of the industrial plant.
