The AMRC has four research groups: machining, assembly, composite materials and structural testing, and “identifies, researches and resolves advanced manufacturing problems”, predominantly for the aerospace and other high-value industries.

The Composite Centre carries out advanced composite manufacturing R&D, including developing new carbon fibre composites and hybrids of metals and composites. New materials bring new challenges, and there is a strong technology focus on automated production, machining and curing technologies.

The Advanced Structural Testing Centre tests everything from samples of new materials to finished products. It has the capability to “physically validate research, analysis, material properties, components, sub assemblies, and full assemblies”, and is accredited by UKAS.

Research support is provided by a number of groups, including Microscopy (surface analysis), Metrology, and Quality (QMS, QA, Six Sigma).

The AMRC employs 180 researchers and engineers .

No chemistry vacancies currently advertised, but keep an eye on their active Twitter feed for updates.
