(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Volcanology and Tectonics

We are seeking to recruit a creative research fellow to interpret InSAR data for tectonic and volcanic applications, and integrate results with other complementary datasets such as thermal imagery and radar backscatter.  

The School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for satellite geodesy and involving researchers from across the UK. We use state-of-the-art Earth Observation techniques, including Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR), to study earthquakes and volcanoes, and help understand the hazards they pose.

InSAR is particularly important to our work following the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Sentinel-1A satellite in April 2014 and the resulting increase in the availability, volume, frequency and quality of Earth Observation data.  Production of InSAR velocity fields is now sufficiently mature for robust integration of the results with other datasets including topography, radar backscatter and thermal imagery to solve problems in tectonics and volcanology.   Imagery from new small satellites, including commercial missions, also has growing potential for scientifically novel results.

In this role, you will specifically be responsible for analysing Sentinel-1 InSAR results in the context of other satellite datasets.  You will use this to address questions in volcanology and tectonics, for example, the impact of topography on magmatic zone architecture and relationships between current seismicity and long term topography. Potential case studies include the western Galapagos, Continental Asian volcanoes and active tectonics across the Alpine Himalayan Zone.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: CAMIE Postdoctoral Research Fellows

The EPSRC Programme Grant Combining Advanced Materials for Interface Engineering (CAMIE) is a collaboration between the University of Leeds (UoL), Imperial College London (ICL) and Queen’s University Belfast (QUB).

CAMIE aims to develop new ways to store, manipulate and transport information, based on our unique approach to materials integration and interface control.  Using the integrated Royce Deposition System, fundamentally different materials can be brought together into single hybrid structures to realise new emergent functionality useful for enhanced device performance.  By controlling  interfaces at the atomic level, we will seek phenomena that have the potential to reduce energy loss in novel structures: for example, using surface states of topological insulators (TIs) should reduce the current densities required to move chiral spin structures; molecular interfaces can enhance the effective spin-orbit coupling increasing charge-spin conversion efficiency; switching ferroelectrics that are coupled to spin statics and dynamics involves lower loss than switching ferromagnets.  A complete understanding of such hybrid structures will pave the way to exploitable technologies likely to define the future of information processing and storage.

(14) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Process Demonstration of Li-6 Enrichment to support Tritium Breeding

One of the key challenges for commercial fusion is a viable fuel cycle that provides a steady supply of Li-6. Li-6 can be separated from natural Li (a mixture of the Li-6 and Li-7 isotopes) using a variety of processes; one of which is solvent extraction. However, these candidate processes have only been proven at small laboratory scale and data is needed at larger scales for engineering scale up.

The aim of this project is to prove that lithium can be recovered from a brine system, in the presence of a secondary ion (Mg) at scale above laboratory. This will be achieved by running extraction experiments on the 3-stage contactor rig at the University of Leeds.

It became part of the federal Victoria University in 1887, joining Owens College (which became the University of Manchester) and University College Liverpool (which became the University of Liverpool). In 1904 a royal charter was granted to the University of Leeds by King Edward VII.

The university has 36,330 students, the 5th largest university in the UK (out of 169). From 2006 to present, the university has consistently been ranked within the top 5 (alongside the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Nottingham and the University of Edinburgh) in the United Kingdom for the number of applications received. Leeds had an income of £789.6 million in 2019/20, of which £139.9 million was from research grants and contracts. The university has financial endowments of £82.1 million (2019–20), ranking outside the top ten British universities by financial endowment.
