Two Research Associate posts available on (1) In situ synchrotron imaging of Additive Manufacturing; (2) Imaging volcanic processes on a synchrotron (at Harwell, Oxfordshire)

 Post 1: S&E-10513 Research Associate: In Situ Imaging of Additive Manufacturing

 This is a 30 month post, funded by Rolls-Royce and the EPSRC, forming part of the new £10m Future Manufacturing Hub in Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes (MAPP, You will help design and commission unique process replicators that allow in situ synchrotron imaging of blown powder additive manufacturing. You will have a passion for research on additive manufacturing and ideally experience in instrument design, synchrotron experiments, and quantification of the time-resolved images.


Post 2: S&E-10519 Research Associate: Imaging Volcanic processes on a synchrotron

This is a 12 month post, which is part of a NERC funded project to shed new light on volcanoes via real time synchrotron x-ray tomography of magmatic phenomena. Working closely with volcanology groups at Manchester, Liverpool, Cambridge and other locations, you will perform unique experiments to replicate magma flows whilst performing 4D (3D plus time) synchrotron tomographic imaging, answering key questions in volcanology.  You will quantify the time-resolved 3D images via the application of advanced image processing techniques.
