EngD vacancies in Materials and Manufacturing Academy (M2A) at the College of Engineering, Swansea University.

Application closing date 27 May 2019, employment start date 1 October 2019
Materials and Manufacturing Academy (M2A)
Swansea University
The Materials and Manufacturing Academy at Swansea University delivers EngD opportunities, with financial support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Welsh European Funding Office (ESF) and our Industry Partners. We have vacancies for the following projects. Investigating formability of future steel grades using rapid alloy prototyping. Interactive steel packaging for brand protection and enhanced consumer experience. Optimization of thermally driven building cooling systems. Materials development for printed electronics and semiconductor applications. Re-use of industrial waste heat utilising thermomechanical materials. Advanced oil application and wettability of Tinplate and ECCS. Semi-Transparent Organic Solar Cells. Innovative high-performance coatings for grain orientated electrical steel. Use of mini coke oven to increase value in use coking coal blends. Forensic analysis of weathered organic coatings to understand mechanisms of degradation. Use of sinter pot pilot facility to optimise sinter plant performance. Advanced sustainability of PIR foam for the building industry. Novel flame-retardant materials based on microporous polymers. Applications from women are particularly welcomed. As a positive action to address gender imbalance, women considering a career in research are invited to join our two-day laboratory taster session, to experience a typical day in the life of a research engineer. Applications are sought from candidates either holding or about to receive either an Engineering or Physical Science degree (minimum level 2:1), or a combination of degree and equivalent relevant experience to the same level to join the M2A community of research engineers.

EngDs at the National Composites Centre, Bristol

Application closing date 30 June 2019, employment start date 1 October 2019
IDC in Composites Manufacture
University of Bristol
The National Composites Centre (NCC) in Bristol currently supports a number of Engineering Doctorate students, in collaboration with the EPSRC-funded Industrial Doctorate Centre in Composites Manufacture ( With several EngD candidates having successfully completed their doctorates, and significant recent investment in new manufacturing technologies, the NCC is seeking to support up to six new EngD projects in polymer matrix composites manufacturing, in topics ranging from in-process monitoring and part verification, development of virtual manufacturing framework, simulation of automated forming processes to design, manufacture and inspection of multi-material primary structures. There is also interest in data-driven manufacturing processes and development of sustainable composite applications, within the automotive, aerospace, construction and energy sectors. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROJECT IS NOT AVAILABLE TO INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS DUE TO TIER 4 VISA REQUIREMENTS. Applicants with ‘home student’ status and holding or about to graduate with a first or 2.1 degree in structural or chemical engineering, materials science or physical sciences, should send their CV and covering letter in the first instance to
