Job Description

Job Description :
The Additive Microstructure Engineering Laboratory in the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at NTU (Singapore) is a young, diverse, and interdisciplinary research group with interests in microstructure characization of polycrystalline metals (). We are developing a novel technique called Directional Reflectance Microscopy (DRM) that enables high-throughput crystal orientation mapping using a simple optical microscope ().
The Additive Microstructure Engineering Laboratory at MAE invites applications for the position of Research Fellow.
Key Responsibilities:

  • Expand DRM capabilities to structural alloys, including Inconel 718, stainless steel, and Ti64

  • Perform etching and updating the data analysis algorithms to infer crystallographic information from such alloys

  • Use DRM as an in-situ characterization tool to assess structure-property relationships in these materials (e.g. focusing on corrosion, plasticity, and grain growth)

Job Requirements:

  • A Doctoral degree in Materials Science and Engineering with prior knowledge and hands-on experience in:

    • Crystallography and characterization of metal alloys (e.g. X-ray and/or electron diffraction, metallography, polycrystalline microstructures)

    • MATLAB or Python (e.g. image analysis, data visualization, dimensionality reduction)

    • Plasticity in polycrystalline materials; OR corrosion and electrochemical properties of metals; OR grain growth and grain boundary crystallography-property relationships

  • Excellent level of spoken and written English

  • High quality publication record in relevant journals

We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.Hiring Institution: NTU
