Failure of composite structures, additive manufactured structures and metamaterials can be life threatening for passengers and financially catastrophic for the operator and the manufacturer. This is the main reason for which a large part of an aircraft’s lifecycle and operating cost is spent for inspecting its structural integrity on the ground. On-line detection and characterization of minor failures within composite aerospace structures can lead to a radical reduction of this cost.
Applications are invited for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate post within the Composites Group of the University. A fixed-term 24 month contract will be offered to the successful candidate. Remuneration will depend on previous experience but the appointee should be expecting to receive a salary of £31,000 - £39,000 per annum.
The successful candidate will be expected to make excellent contributions in the area. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a consistent publication track record.
This funding call is open to all UK, EU and International applicants.
Informal enquiries prior to making an application may be addressed along with a detailed CV to Dr D. Chronopoulos [email protected]
This position will remain open until filled.
