Research Fellow in Control System Design: Coupling sensors to flow systems

  • Closing soon
  • Closing date: 19 Jul 2020
  • United Kingdom | University of Leeds
  • Date posted: 23 Jun 2020
  • Job type: Academic: postdoc

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in control system engineering and sensing/flow technology? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities? Do you want to be part of an EU funded international innovation programme?

You will form a critical part of the Leeds team which is leading this ambitious and exciting international project. You will couple a well-developed sensing platform to a flow nanoparticle production system also developed in this project by a fellow research worker. In addition, you will adapt a unique flow corrosion cell system to characterise the stability of nanomaterial derived coatings used for protection and also medical implants. This is an innovation project and during the project lifetime the developed technology will be transferred to several companies who are partners in the project. You must be a team worker who will fully integrate with both the Leeds group and the other 18 partners. You will be expected to work closely with all project participants, especially the industrial companies. You will need to travel and spend some time in respective project partner's laboratories.

You will have a PhD in flow system technology or a closely allied discipline, a strong background in electrodic electrochemical systems and experience in experimental equipment design including the integration of measurement equipment and computer controls on to equipment.
