    Description

    The role of the successful applicant will be to conduct experimental research in characterisation of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in materials for fission reactors (e.g. PWRs). Research to be carried out in this post will be centred on the characterisation of SCC crack tips in a series of austenitic alloys by high-resolution analytical STEM and atom-probe tomography (APT). We are especially interested in correlative microscopy where the same feature is studied by both techniques. The main objective will be to provide with a better explanation of the effect of alloy composition on crack growth. The research is based in Oxford, but will be performed within a large, multi-faceted collaborative project involving Oxford and Manchester universities, and two external partners: EDF (France) and INSS (Japan). The post is funded for up to 3 years by EPSRC.Applications for this post are to be made online (vacancy reference 132052 ).

    The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 20 December 2017

    Requirements

    You will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil in materials science or a related field and possess specialist knowledge, experience and skills related to the field of analytical high-resolution methods (STEM and/or APT). Experience on corrosion and/or fracture would be advantageous.

    PhD position
    Announcement date: 29 November 2017

    [show details]

    Description

    Heterogeneous metal catalysts are of tremendous importance to chemical industry. Activity, selectivity and stability of catalysts during chemical reactions is largely determined by the size, location and composition of catalytically active metal particles typically supported on metal oxides such as silica, alumina or titania. Within the framework of ARC-CBBC consortium (http://www.arc-cbbc.nl/), this project aims to deepen the understanding of reduction step of catalyst precursors, which is often a vital step in catalyst preparation as it determines the dispersion and thereby activity. The focus will be on the preparation of supported metal catalysts, and the evolution of the active phase will be investigated using both ex-situ and in-situ approaches. In-situ transmission electron microscopy will play a crucial role (see J. Am. Chem. Soc. 138, 2016, 3433), and thanks to the development of in-situ gas phase cells it will be possible to follow the evolution of metal nanoparticles under high temperature and in gas environment inside the TEM.

    Requirements

    We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and skilled student holding an MSc in a relevant area of Chemistry, Materials Science or Chemical Engineering. The candidate preferably has some experience with catalysis, catalyst synthesis and/or electron microscopy.
