The MASSIVE (Manufacture of Safe and Sustainable Volatile Element functional materials) project is looking to recruit an experienced scientist/engineer to help develop materials processing techniques to allow printed materials to be produced in a sustainable and energy efficient manner. The successful post holder would be required to be in post by 2nd of January 2019.

To compliment the existing team the post holder will be expected to have experience with processing of inorganic materials as well as operating, adapting and developing processing equipment and characterisation equipment within a science or engineering context. They will also work closely with the team’s outreach officer to publicise and disseminate the project outputs to multiple stakeholders and should demonstrate excellent communication skills.

The MASSIVE project is sponsored by EPSRC and hosted within the Functional Nano Materials group within the Centre for Engineering Materials, part of the University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences. The Functional Nano Materials group is led by Professor Robert Dorey and has active projects examining the synthesis, manufacture and sustainability of advanced functional materials and active devices.
