Focus on: Catapult – NAMRC

Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre

Location: Advanced Manufacturing Park (Sheffield/Rotherham) and labs at Manchester University

Partners: Manchester and Sheffield Universities, Rolls-Royce

Jobs advertised on the University of Sheffield job site and the University of Manchester job site

Twitter: @NuclearAMRC

The NAMRC aims to “improve capabilities and performance along the nuclear supply chain”. The NAMRC Laboratory in Manchester carries out proof-of-concept manufacturing research into new materials and processing, welding/joining and surface technology. The Sheffield-based NAMRC focuses on advanced manufacturing research on metals engineering, primarily for the manufacture of components for new nuclear power stations.

While it appears the majority of STEM opportunities at NAMRC are engineering-related, chemists may be suitably qualified for areas such as materials characterisation, component performance and materials research.

The NAMRC currently has no chemistry vacancies advertised (except possibly research associate roles in Manchester), but keep an eye on their active Twitter feed for updates.
