Senior Research Fellow (80980-117)

Fixed term position for 2.5 years.

We are seeking to appoint a Senior Research Fellow to undertake research on the EPSRC funded grant Reliability and Condition Monitoring of Wide bandgap Based Power Electronics.

You will establish a sound research base within the department in order to develop research objectives, projects and proposals. You will produce and present regular reports ensuring that project objectives and deadlines are met. You may be expected to contribute to teaching and learning programmes in the department along with supervising postgraduate research students. You will also participate in and develop external networks e.g. build relationships for future activities.

Closing date: 5 December 2017

Research Fellow (80203-117)

Fixed term position for 24 months.

We are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to carry out research on condition monitoring power electronics found in offshore wind turbines, wind farms and HVDC converter stations. You will conduct research and write up your work for publication, contributing to industrial application proposals and papers for steering groups and other bodies. You will translate knowledge of advances in the area into research activity and support the Principal Investigator to ensure successful project progression.

Research Fellow (80976-117)

Fixed term contract for three years.

We seek to appoint a research fellow to undertake research as part of the Leverhulme Trust funded project "The Nature of Interatomic Forces in Metallic Systems". The aim of this project is to initiate a comprehensive research program to (1) characterise atomistic interaction in metals, specifically the emergence of locality of interaction from randomness (e.g., temperature); and then (2) optimally exploit our new understanding to produce novel interatomic potentials and multiscale schemes with controllable errors.

You will have a developing research profile with the ability to publish high quality research. You will have experience with first principles calculations at the level of density functional theory and proven scientific software development skills using C, Fortran, Python or Julia. Experience with machine learning approaches, development of interatomic potentials (e.g. bond order potentials) and/or tight binding models would be an advantage.

Two linked postdoc positions are available: this one in Engineering and one in Mathematics. Close collaboration between numerical analysis and materials modelling will be required. Applicants who are qualified for both posts are encouraged to apply for both.

Closing date: 7 January 2018
