Research Fellow in MgO-Based Cements

Are you an early career researcher looking for your first challenge? Do you have a background in Cement Research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK's leading research-intensive universities?

Magnesium is the 7th most abundant element in the Earth's crust and the 3rd most abundant element in solution in seawater. Therefore, MgO-based cements are a realistic low-carbon alternative to Portland cement, especially considering the development in technologies to extract MgO from silicates and/or brine, as well as processes to carbonate and/or chlorinate magnesium compounds or ions.

The post-holder will work to develop novel sustainable processes and binders as well as re-establish and advance currently unappreciated binders of the past, for the technical as well as economic improvement of MgO-based cements and associated supply chains.

This role will be based at the university of Leeds campus and there is scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact the project leader Professor Theodore Hanein, Professor in Construction Materials Science, via the School Manager at the contact details below.
