Advanced Design Engineering (ADE) project
Full Time, Fixed Term until 31.01.2022
Salary: £41,212 - £49,149 per annum
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is looking to recruit two Senior Research Officers to work on the exciting Advanced Design Engineering (ADE) project, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project is based in UWTSD’s Centre for Batch Manufacture (CBM), located in UWTSD’s brand new Innovation Quarter at SA1 in Swansea.
The ADE project will focus on the application of the industrial digital technologies and advanced manufacturing technologies that are at the heart of the ‘fourth industrial revolution’, the so-called Industry 4.0 (I4.0) revolution. I4.0 technologies that will be deployed in the ADE project will include, virtual reality modelling and data capture, 3-D scanning, computer aided design, simulation and analysis, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping and tooling, and additive manufacturing in a range of materials.
You will contribute to the management and delivery of the project, which is designed to drive the successful translation of research and innovation processes into new and improved commercial products, processes and services, in particular, through improved technology transfer from HEIs in the area of additive manufacturing.
Main responsibilities include:
• Contributing to the development of a portfolio of collaborative projects with Welsh manufacturing companies in line with the objectives of the ADE project, taking a lead role in the development of proposals for collaborative research projects within the ADE programme.
• Acting as a principle investigator in leading the development and delivery of specified individual collaborative projects and project managing these.
• Working collaboratively with supported enterprises to generate new research approaches and identify, adapt, develop and use research methodologies and techniques appropriate to the type of research. This will contribute to the development of thought and practise in the field of additive manufacturing.
• Acting as an important source of expertise advice and ‘know how’ and a point of reference for others with nationally or internationally recognised authority in the application of additive manufacturing processes.
• Where appropriate, preparing the results of collaborative research for publication and making presentations at national and international conferences and other similar events
Full details of the role can be found in the Job Description, on the University’s website.
Closing date: 1st October 2018, 5pm
