Electrochemical deposition in a magnetic field is a novel and growing area of research across Europe and contributes to the development of innovative highly sustainable and efficient metallisation processes for electrochemical research and with applicability across high value manufacturing sectors ie electronics, aerospace and automotive.
This study is at the forefront of electrochemical metallisation processes. You will be part of a dynamic, growing research team and have access to latest technologies and equipment in this area. FMARG has very strong links with industry and the project will involve close interaction with industrial partners, testing and validation studies on industrial sites and discussions on commercial implementation. Additionally you will have the opportunity to travel to conferences and events both academic and industrial within the UK and abroad.
The successful candidate would develop an innovative niche area of research for which the Functional Materials ARG could become World renowned and âthoughtâ leaders. This is therefore extremely timely and represents an opportunity for the development of novel fundamental research.
Candidate specification; If you a passion for applied science with an interest and background in electrochemistry, materials science, chemistry or relevant science subject and are ambitious to develop a project where you could become a âthought leaderâ and critically advance metallisation processes we will be very keen to hear from you. Candidates must hold an MSc or MScR qualification. For more details on our standard entry requirements see the web page below:
Each applicant must complete a Coventry University application form that can be downloaded from the following web page.
Each applicant must also provide 2 references
Applicants will be shortlisted according to their qualifications, experience and suitability to the project (including assessment of the literature review) provided
We are looking for candidates with a relevant MSc or MScR qualification. For more details on our standard entry requirements see the web page above.
It may be possible for students who are currently studying for a directly relevant MScR to apply, however, in such a case if a studentship was awarded it would be for two years to allow the student to convert and complete a PhD.
Closing date: 16th August 2013
Interview date: tbc
