PhD studentship offer

 A PhD studentship is now available working on the synchrotron and neutron imaging of additive manufacturing, based at ESRF.

The PhD will be a UCL one with Prof. Lee as primary supervisor.

You will do several placements at Rolls-Royce UK. However, the bulk of the time will be spent at ESRF.

You will join ID19’s team at the ESRF. ID19 is a hard X-ray beamline with a special emphasis on (in situ) microtomography and ultra-high speed radiography. Working with UCL, ILL and Rolls-Royce plc, your PhD project will be to help develop, build and use in situ additive manufacturing (AM) rigs which can be used on the ESRF/ILL beamlines to perform in situ and operando imaging that will help develop new processes, materials and monitoring systems. Working with the beamline scientists at ESRF you will learn state of the art X-ray physics; with UCL you will learn how to design and apply AM rigs that work on synchrotron and neutron (with ILL) beamlines. At Rolls-Royce you will use the new physics you reveal to improve and validate computation models of the process.
