Overview:

Queen Mary is one of London and the UK’s leading research-focused universities. With over 20,000 students, it is amongst the largest of the colleges of the University of London. Queen Mary’s 4,000 staff teach and research across a wide range of subjects in Science and Engineering, the Humanities, Social Sciences and Laws, and Medicine and Dentistry.

This post is within the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS), a large School with ~70 academics, approximately 45 research staff, over 200 PhD Students and around 1000 taught students. SEMS includes 26 academics, working in fundamental and applied aspects of materials science. The project is in collaboration with researchers in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). The Schools are part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, which comprises five schools and two institutes.

The School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London has a vacancy for a Materials Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on the ANIMATE project (PI Prof Yang Hao, School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science) funded through EPSRC under the supervision of Dr Haixue Yan.

The post is sponsored by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Council as part of the “Software Defined Materials for Dynamic Control of Electromagnetic Waves (ANIMATE) project. ANIMATE will bring together a new grouping of physicists, material scientists and antenna engineers to develop a new paradigm for software defined materials with wireless controlled network at subwavelength scales, in industrial contexts, which can be programmable for current and evolving standards, security requirements and multiple functionalities.

Applicants should have a PhD (awarded or reasonably expected to be awarded within 3 months) or equivalent in Materials or Chemistry Science. They should have prior research experience and contributions in advanced materials processing techniques, including electric field assisted processing. Also Experience working on microwave dielectrics. Solid knowledge of materials characterisation and excellent experimental skills are also essential, with a good understanding of underlaying physics being desired.

The post is full time and fixed term for 12 months. The project is funded by EPSRC and is expected to start in September, 2018. The starting salary will be £33,615 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. (Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan).

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.
