A role with MAPP means being part of a large, growing and well-networked multidisciplinary team working with leading universities, industry partners and High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) centres.

MAPP’s cohort of researchers works together to solve some of the fundamental challenges limiting the uptake of a vital class of new and emerging technologies in ceramics, metals and polymers.

The hub’s collaborative approach draws in expertise from materials science, automatic control and systems engineering, mechanical engineering, the Henry Royce Institute, the UK's national synchrotron - the Diamond Light Source and our close working relationships with industry partners including GKN, Renishaw and Rolls-Royce.

MAPP is recoupling manufacturing process development with the underpinning materials science, with a research programme spanning the fundamentals of powder materials, advanced in-situ process monitoring and characterisation, and new approaches to modelling and control.

CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

Project Manager, University College London

The successful candidate will join a dynamic group of academics, beamline scientists, post-docs and PhD students using in-situ synchrotron X-ray and neutron techniques to study advanced materials and their processing.

The group, led by Professor Peter Lee, is based in the Research Complex at Harwell on the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire, the UK’s largest site for national laboratories, including the UK’s synchrotron light source, Diamond and ISIS Neutron Source.

The successful candidate will oversee several large international multi-disciplinary UKRI funded Research Projects and Networks based upon synchrotron imaging, including MAPP.

In addition, they will support Prof. Lee in achieving the goals of his 10 year, £2.7M Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging technology, and support the group in running several smaller research projects funded by the EPSRC, NERC, BBSRC, MRC, EU and Industry.

They will work with the academics, post-doctoral workers and students working on the projects, with the Research Complex staff, and the many academic and industrial collaborators and visitors.

The closing date for applications is 15 Oct 2020. Click here to apply.

Research Fellow: In-situ Synchrotron Imaging of Additive Manufacturing for Materials and Process Development

University College London Mechanical Engineering is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to be based at Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire, to help develop multi-laser in-situ and operando additive manufacturing (AM) machines.

The post holder will use ultra-fast synchrotron X-ray imaging and correlative optical, infrared and digital image correlation (DIC) techniques to develop new processes and new materials. They will work closely with academic and industrial collaborators from MAPP.

The goal will be to develop novel materials, techniques and control algorithms that achieve highly repeatable properties in primarily metal AM components.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic group of academics, beamline scientists, post-docs and PhD students using in-situ synchrotron X-ray and neutron techniques to study advanced materials and their processing.

The group, led by Prof. Lee and Dr Leung, is based in the Research Complex at Harwell, on the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire, the UK’s largest site for national laboratories, including the UK’s synchrotron light source, Diamond and ISIS Neutron Source.

PhD Studentship - Capturing Additive Manufacturing's Laser-Matter Interactions

A PhD studentship is now available working on the synchrotron and neutron imaging of additive manufacturing, based at The European Synchrotron (ESRF).

Working with UCL, ILL and Rolls-Royce plc, the PhD project will be to help develop, build and use in-situ additive manufacturing (AM) rigs which can be used on the ESRF/ILL beamlines to perform in-situ and operando imaging that will help develop new processes, materials and monitoring systems.

Prof. Peter Lee, UCL, will be primary academic supervisor, and Dr Alexander Rack ESRF supervisor. The successful candidate will have several placements at Rolls-Royce UK. However, the bulk of the time will be spent at ESRF.
