Research Fellow in Tribology and Biomechanics
- University of Leeds
- Location: Leeds, United Kingdom
- Job Number: 7090316 (Ref #: EPSME1068)
- Posting Date: Dec 8, 2021
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in Tribology, Surfaces, Interfaces or Biomechanics? Are you interested in developing new skills? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?
This position is a multi-industry funded post aimed at translating sensor technology to a range of tribological to assess complex interfacial processes. You will join a vibrant research institute (Institute of Functional Surfaces) and be part of a project investigating the science of friction.
You will work on a project involving sensing and monitoring of corrosion, wear and material transfer in tribological contacts for a range of contacts including energy, aerospace and biomedical application. It will involve integrating established sensing techniques to gain real-time information on the nature of the processes occurring complex interfaces.
Holding a PhD (or have submitted your thesis before taking up the role) in a relevant Tribology field, you will have experience of carrying out complex tribology experimental programmes and of tribological research in materials tribology and surface characterisation, together with a positive, enthusiastic approach to collaborative research.
