Job Description

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in mechanics of particulates solids in relation to Tribology, Surfaces or Interfaces? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities? 

You will join a vibrant research institute (Institute of Functional Surfaces) and be part of several projects investigating Tribology (experimental and modelling aspects).

You will work on different projects which will seek to develop novel experimental and modelling strategies to understand multiple aspects of Tribology.

Holding a PhD Degree (or close to completion) in numerical methods, ideally related to Tribology, you will have experience of developing experimental validation of numerical models and an understanding of the challenges associated with modelling tribological systems, together with a positive approach to collaborative research.
