Job description

Loughborough University has an exciting opportunity to join the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering as a Research Associate in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Data-Driven Analytics

Fixed-Term for 12 months, with the possibility of extending.

The post can be on a full-time or part-time basis and be based on campus or remote working. Job Share and lower FTE would be actively considered.

Data analytics methods are increasingly being applied to understanding materials discovery, processing parameters in manufacturing and for system optimisation with regards to increased efficiency, safety, sustainability and profitability. These data-driven techniques are also being used to enhance “human-in-the-loop” scenarios and where root-cause analysis needs to explain issues that inform re-designs or de-risk investments.

We are looking for a data scientist who can utilise machine learning algorithms and tools to model manufacturing processes and materials discovery to support parameter optimization and decision making.
