Cranfield University is an exclusively postgraduate University with an excellent global reputation for industry-relevant education and research. We are the only university in Europe with our own airport and runway. Through the strong links with industry we have built over the past 70 years, we focus on defining and delivering the aircraft, airport and airspace management of the future.

Cranfield Aerospace is one of the eight major themes at Cranfield University. The Centre for Autonomous and Cyber-Physical Systems is a specialist centre established over 15 years within the School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing dedicated to research and teaching in autonomous and space systems. We cover all types of autonomous vehicles including airborne, ground and marine as well as autonomous space exploration.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual who will contribute to research in the area of ultrasonic phased array inspection of aircraft structures. You will join a dynamic research group involved in an EU funded project to develop, implement and integrate an ultrasonic phased array inspection module suitable to be mounted on a robot for inspection of aircraft composite structures.

Candidates are expected to be confident and independent researchers with a PhD (or close to completion) in a relevant engineering discipline or have significant industrial research experience in ultrasonic phased array NDE. You will also have experience in research management using both qualitative and quantitative methods, be able to work both independently and as part of a team and be keen to carry out experimental research.
