Research Associate in Scanning Electron Microscopy Modelling and Data Analysis (68858)
 

Salary Range: £31,076 (fixed due to funding)
FTE: 1.0
Term: Fixed (until 31 May 2020)
Closing Date: 15 January 2018

The Semiconductor Spectroscopy and Devices group in the Department is looking to appoint a Research Associate to conduct and supervise computational research into simulating and analysing electron diffraction in scanning electron microscopes. Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for Physics research.

To be considered for the role, you will hold a PhD (or equivalent professional experience) in a relevant discipline associated with physical or computational science. You will have extensive knowledge in at least one of the areas of simulating electron microscopy images, computational modelling of materials or machine learning. You will also have applied practical experience in the development, conduct and troubleshooting of computational tools. You will have a developing ability to conduct individual research work, to disseminate results and to prepare research proposals. You will have an ability to plan and organise your own workload effectively and an ability to work within a combined theoretical and experimental team environment.

You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to listen, engage and persuade, and to present complex information in an accessible way to a range of audiences. Please note that this post is a re-advertisement and therefore previous applicants need not reapply. 

It is anticipated that formal interviews for this post will be held in early February 2018.
