Job description

Job summary

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in the Centre for Plasmonics and Metamaterials in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London.  The position is funded by the European Commission under the Future and Emerging Technologies-Open scheme, grant n.86317.

You will be working on the FET-Open project Boheme - Bio-Inspired Hierarchical MetaMaterials. This project aims to leverage, and enhance, our understanding of metamaterials to deliver new capabilities by taking inspiration from biological materials. This is a fixed-term full-time position.

Duties and responsibilities

You will develop the theoretical background for a number of exemplars for elastic and mechanical metasurfaces. In addition, you will be involved in numerical simulations that lead to mathematical understanding and theoretical results.

Essential requirements

You must hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Applied Mathematics, Physics or a subject relevant to the project.

You must also meet the following criteria:

  • Prior experience in the field of metamaterials.
  • Expertise in commercial finite element packages such as Comsol
  • Experience of giving talks at internationally recognised conferences and workshops
  • Experience writing research papers in Engineering, Physics or Applied Mathematics
  • A broad and strong background in Wave Physics
  • A strong interest and knowledge of wave propagation through structured media
  • Ability to identify, develop and apply concepts, techniques and methods in new contexts
  • Ability to conduct a detailed review of recent literature
  • Willingness to work as part of a team, to be open-minded and cooperative, and be able (circumstances allowing) to travel on occasion to visit project partners in Bristol or Farnborough

Further information

The position is full time fixed term for 24 months. The expected start date is 1 October 2020.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477 - £38,566 per annum.

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.
