University of Cambridge: Research Assistant/Associate in Portable High Field Magnet Systems (Fixed Term)

A position exists for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering's Bulk Superconductivity Group to work on Portable High Field Magnet Systems. The post holder will work with Dr Mark Ainslie, an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Early Career Fellow, on an EPSRC-funded project to develop portable, high magnetic field charging of bulk superconductors for practical engineering applications.
The post will involve the design, construction and experimental testing of a pulsed field magnetisation system to magnetise bulk superconductors to act as trapped field magnets. The developed system would then be used as a proof-of-concept for bespoke designs for specific applications that can take advantage of the high magnetic fields available from such materials.

The successful candidate will be able to conduct research and design tests and experiments to address the research objectives and find solutions; compile and analyse quantitative and qualitative data; prepare reports and present results to summarise main findings and conclusions; write journal articles on reveal research findings, if possible; manage own research and administrative activities, with guidance if required; work in a team and provide support to other work when required; and may assist in the development of student research skills.

The applicant must have (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in a relevant discipline (Physics, Electrical Engineering or Materials Science) and an undergraduate/master's degree in a relevant scientific/engineering area. The applicant must also demonstrate relevant knowledge and experience in the development, design and construction of experimental apparatus for characterising superconducting and/or magnetic materials or engineering applications of superconductors.
