Job description

Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering

Full Time, Fixed Term for 24 months

Senior Research Associate in Process Simulation and Validation

80% of the costs of realising a product is in validation of prototypes (physical or cyber). It is often common that the decision to progress from concepts to prototype is taken without a complete set of information, leading to risk and often wasted resources. Wouldn't it be great to have an “engine” that could guide the design stage, informed by better quality and comprehensive know-how of manufacturing? Would it make sense to carry out cyber-physical validations before committing to a final design? This would lead to right-first time product realisation, with savings in capital investment, efficiencies in time and minimising waste and resources consumed.

This research post falls within the EPSRC Programme Grant ‘RIED' (Re- Imagining Engineering Design) https: // www. lboro.ac.uk/news- events/news/2021/june/cyber-seed-reid-project/, a multi-institute project investigating new concepts for high-value manufacturing.

Our school is a top-ten rated for research impact with 96% of research world leading or internationally excellent (REF2021). In choosing Loughborough you'll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field and will have developmental opportunities to further you in your career.

Project Detail:

We are seeking applicants with a profound interest in the design, manufacture and validation of high performing multifunctional products. The candidate will join a multidisciplinary team, including industrial collaborators. The candidate will also be expected to exercise management and take leadership in various aspects of the work, being this post a great opportunity for professional development. This post will expose the candidate to a broad range of practical techniques and much sought-after skills demanded by academia and Industry, including:

  • Complex process, Multi-physics simulation, formal requirements capture architectures.
  • Validation and verification of products and processes, exploring the concepts of ‘Smart testing' via in-silico or ex-silico/real life approaches.
  • Design of experiments, data harvesting, collation, analysis and interpretation to derive insight and guide engineering design.
  • Communicating research results and outputs to scientific audiences and the general public
