Graduate Research Assistant
We are seeking a graduate research assistant to help develop our technical knowledge on Pluumo, our novel feather-based insulation material. This is a hands-on role where the candidate will gain practical experience working within an industrial setting to establish new testing methods and protocols for thermal dynamics. This will be a fast-paced R&D environment, with scope across multiple disciplines including chemistry, physics and material science. This role will primarily involve lab-based research with some desk-based research for collating data and reporting to colleagues.
- Perform lab-based experiments to determine thermodynamic properties of insulation materials.
- Conduct measurements on a heat flow meter (HFM) to investigate the effect of numerous variables on thermal performance with a strong view to optimisation.
- Analyse, manage and present results to the R&D and management team on a regular basis.
- Organise, manage and track data in a logical format.
This is a fixed term contract of 3 months, on a full-time basis.
This role is funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry Graduate Internship Grant scheme.
Planned start date: 2/8/20221
