Job Ref: 1342724
Grade: 7
Salary: £30,122 – £35,938
Full Time, Fixed Term, 24 months
Description: The person selected for this position will join a team of theoreticians and experimentalists working on a newly-funded project by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The aim of the project is to develop new designs for sound and vibration reducing structures based on periodic resonant inclusions or graded structures (metamaterials). The proposed research will respond to the engineering challenge of finding lightweight materials for sound and vibration reduction particularly at low frequencies.The project is a joint venture between the Open University, Loughborough University and University of Salford. Salford post doc will be involved with the theoretical part of the project, working in close collaboration with experimentalists based at the Open University and Loughborough.

The successful candidate should have:

  • PhD in Applied Mathematics, Physics, Acoustics or in a related discipline
  • Experience in theoretical modelling of wave propagation in periodic media, wave scattering or in related areas
  • Experience in scientific programming
  • Ability to interpret the experimental results and plan experiments
  • Excellent communication/written skills in English

At the University of Salford we are committed to an inclusive approach to promoting equality and diversity. We aim to have a more diverse workforce at all levels of the institution and particularly welcome applications from people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities, who are under-represented in our workforce.
