Job description

Both the Centre for Manufacturing and Materials (CMM), and the award-winning Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME) reside within the Institute for Clean Growth and Future Mobility (formerly known as the Institute for Future Transport and Cities) at Coventry University.

The Laser Processing and Joining Research Theme Group, within the Centre for Manufacturing and Materials, is seeking to recruit a capable Research Fellow as part of the H1perChain project funded by Innovate UK through APC12 to develop electrical vehicle battery manufacturing systems.

The H1perChain project, with industrial contribution, amounts to a total of £11.8M, spread over seven partners with the varied backgrounds necessary to deliver the project. The partners with Coventry University are: Williams Advanced Engineering; Unipart; Hyperbat; HSSMI; TWI; and Direc-Tec.

This is an immediate opening for a highly motivated individual with a PhD in mechanical engineering, materials science, physics or chemistry (physical/surface). The focus of the successful applicant's work in this post will be to develop fundamental understanding of the laser joining and welding of low thickness dissimilar materials for EV battery production in an Industry 4.0 environment, focussing on welding defects and how they relate to weld quality. A strong background in laser materials processing with knowledge of laser joining and materials analysis are essential for this position.

The successful candidate will be part of a vibrant research group with a variety of lasers based at the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME), within the CMM, working on an innovative project to develop and apply laser welding capabilities for manufacturing next generation EV battery systems. The position is research focused however, you will have excellent communication skills and the desire and ability to teach postgraduate and undergraduate courses.

Interested candidates should include a CV and brief summary of research accomplishments with their application.

This is a 12 month fixed-term post until 30th September 2023 subject to funding confirmation.

For informal enquiries regarding this post please contact Dr David Waugh (ac4963@coventry.ac.uk). Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
