Research Fellow in Triobological Sensing in Fretting Contacts
This role is one of eight Research Fellow positions which have come about as a result of an EPSRC Programme Grant in Tribology being awarded. You will join a vibrant research institute (Institute of Functional Surfaces) and be part of a project investigating the science of friction.
You will work on a project involving sensing and monitoring of corrosion, wear and displacements in fretting contacts associated with modular tapers in hip joints. It will involve integrating electrochemical and other sensing additives to gain real-time information on the nature of the processes occurring in this complex interface.
Holding a PhD (or close to completion) in a relevant Tribology field, you will have experience of carrying out complex tribology and corrosion experimental programmes and of tribological research in hip joints or other medical implants, together with a positive, enthusiastic approach to collaborative research.
