Job Opportunity - Research Associates level.

Applications are invited for two research associates positions in the Mineral Physics group in the Department of Earth Sciences whose aim is to understand the dynamics and evolution of the deep Earth and planets. The research will focus on pre-melting behaviour in iron, in simple metals and in other simple materials. The research will determine whether or not there are significant changes in material properties (such as elastic constants, sound velocities and other thermoelastic properties) just prior to melting.

Crystallography and Mineral Physics



Our CMP group is internationally renowned for performing outstanding research into to the composition, structure, dynamics and evolution of the Earth and terrestrial planets. We combine both high P/T experimental techniques (DAC, MAP) with computational mineral physics. We regularly gain beamtime at the Rutherford ISIS facility and have access to high-performance computing via the UK Mineral Physics Consortium.
