PHYSICS/MATERIALS SCIENCE

-----------------------
Early-Stage Researcher
-----------------------
Job description.-
The objective of this project is to tailor amorphous / glassy Ti-alloys containing neither toxic nor allergic additions and to understand the correlation between chemistry, glassy structure and mechanical response (elastic & plastic behavior). The project will make use of two processing options: controlled solidification (different casting methods, cooling rates ranging between 103-106 ºC/s) and powder metallurgy. Tasks: a) synthesis of glassy materials (different processing routes); b) in-depth structural characterization (XRD, electron microscopy); c) glassy phase thermal stability and crystallization kinetics (using DSC, DTA, TGA); d) Net-shape processing - thermoplastic forming in supercooled liquid region; e) elastic and plastic deformation behavior (nanoindentation, ultrasonic measurements, mechanical tests etc); f) finite element simulations of the mechanical behavior.
The appointment will be on a temporary basis for a maximum period of 3 years (PhD student, regular employment contract).
Appointment.-
The remuneration will be in line with the EC rules for Marie Curie grant holders (Early-Stage Researchers, ITN).
http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/index.htm
Requirements.-
Degree: University Master degree in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering or Materials Sciences with high grades.
Knowledge and experience in materials science (sample preparation, x-ray diffraction, thermal and micro-structural characterization, etc,), Programming skills, Advanced computer knowledge (Microsoft office, Databases, Image Editors).
Other requirement: Fluent in English. Good Spanish knowledge will be an added-value. Team work ability..
Eligibility.-
The candidate must have no PhD and less than 4 years' research experience.
The applicant must not have spent more than 12 months in the country (Spain) of the host/recruiting institution in the 3 years prior to selection
