Additional staff and guests

Dr Sonia Guehairia,, is a Post Doc in our unit, specialising in research involving Atom Probe Tomography characterisation.

We also currently have 3 visiting researchers: Yanqui Ma (, Nianshuang Qui ( and Xiaoyu Yang (

Announcing 3 PhD student and 3 postdoc positions within sustainable metallic material research using advanced characterisation and/or modelling.

Our team is expanding its metallic materials research related to sustainability challenges such as electrification of the transport sector, sustainable manufacturing and alloy design for circularity.

Our research expansion is part of major initiatives in advanced material characterization and/or modelling of process-structure-property relations in metallic materials with complex microstructures. This means we can offer candidates a position within a collaborative international research team with the ambition to conduct cutting-edge research together with an extensive network of collaborators in other universities, research institutes, companies and large-scale research infrastructures.

We are looking for people who are interested in bringing their knowledge and further developing their competence in the fields of advanced materials characterization and/or materials modelling and who could contribute to cutting-edge research in mechanical/physical metallurgy. Some of the main objectives of the research positions are: (a) to develop and implement advanced lab-scale and large-scale (synchrotron and neutron facility) characterization methods, e.g. micromechanical testing, TEM, SAXS, WAXS, 3DXRD, SANS; (b) to probe relations between processing, structure and properties through in-situ/ex-situ methods, and (c) to develop and validate multiscale computational models such as CPFEM and CALPHAD-based models using advanced characterization input.

Projects can be tailored to suit your interests.

If you hold either an MSc or PhD in materials science or a related field and you are interested in exploring challenging research questions, we are interested in receiving your application.
