Campus: South Kensington and White City
Full-Time, Fixed Term contract for minimum 12 months with possibility of an extension
As part of the wider NEURONE (Neutron Irradiations of Advanced Steels) programme on mechanistic understanding of irradiation damage in creep and irradiation resistant castable nanostructured steels in the group of Dr Mark Wenman.
Imperial College London is a science-based institution with the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any UK university. The Faculty of Engineering, consistently rated among the best in the world, is made up of ten academic departments and is committed to increasing its research activity by focusing on engineering-led multidisciplinary growth areas that target a number of global challenges. All of our academic departments are located on a single campus in South Kensington, giving a concentration of talent that creates a stimulating and vibrant research community.
The Department of Materials, http://www.imperial.ac.uk/engineering/departments/materials/ wishes to appoint an outstanding individual with a strong track record in density functional theory modelling of alloys used for nuclear fusion reactor components http://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/m.wenman.
You will also be a conscientious, innovative scientist who has successfully completed a PhD (or equivalent) in atomic scale modelling, especially using density functional theory codes. Additionally, this post is most suited to someone with experience of modelling transition metal alloys with multiple alloying elements and have an understanding of nuclear materials used in reactors. In addition, you will be able to produce models that enable alloy design prediction and help develop mechanistic understanding of how irradiation damage occurs in creep resistant steels.
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £40,694- £43,888 per annum.
Further information can be obtained from Dr Mark Wenman. [email protected].
Further guidance may be sought from Mrs Darakshan Khan ([email protected]).

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal research/
