Within the Bristol Composites Institute at the University of Bristol there is an exciting opportunity to join a strong team in the modelling of composite structures’ manufacturing and production.
What will you be doing?
High-quality numerical analysis is a crucial part of the process of understanding the manufacturing and production of composite structures.
The role holder will develop and deploy numerical tools for the prediction of manufacturing, based on a physical understanding of the production processes employed.
The post holder may also conduct experimental testing, which will provide input information for model generation and validation.
You will work on development of custom written codes, application of commercial finite element software and development of user subroutines that will create production-ready solutions for virtual manufacturing methods.
You should apply if
You will have a MEng in Engineering/Materials Science or closely related discipline and ideally a PhD in Engineering/Materials Science.
You will also have good experience of finite element analysis techniques, programming and composites manufacturing and production processes.
Appointment will be made for 18 months in the first instance.
