Our Johnson Matthey Technology Centre in Billingham is recruiting for a Powder/Particle Research Engineer to join the team on a 12 month fixed-term contract.
In this role, you will work in the context of particle technology, with special emphasis on the characterisation of the flow behaviour of powders using different techniques. You will be responsible for the execution and interpretation of lab experiments, as well as documentation and communication of the results. This role is a great opportunity for a recent graduate who has participated in projects on particle technology, experience with characterisation techniques for powder flowability such as shear testing and powder rheometry, familiarity with hopper design procedures.
In addition to the above, you will also contribute to the implementation of new powder characterisation techniques, which might require building small rigs, e.g. to measure triboelectric charge (generated by impact, friction, etc. at varying velocity), pneumatic transport regimes/velocity, saltation velocity, dynamic angle of repose at high temperature (small rotating drums), erosion propensity, surface energy.
