Job’s profile:

  • Analyse the resulting testing and characterisation data, in a Test Report. Propose new tests and improvements, if needed, that will lead to a representative and robust material or part analysis.
  • Characterize microstructure, defects and properties of additively manufactured metallic components (e.g., observed through Scanning Electron Microscopy)
  • Assess metallic powder degradation and establish procedures for powder recycling (mechanical, chemical, heat etc.)
  • Define, establish and perform material and component pre- and post- processing techniques, including surface finishing and heat treatments for additively manufactured metallic components.
  • Support new metal powder alloy development as feedstock in Additive Manufacturing activities (Selective Laser Melting/Laser Powder Bed Fusion) to assure part quality and properties meet product specifications and customer expectation.
  • Work with the process and application engineers to select and set characterization techniques required to support component production.
  • Work with cross-discipline team to define requirements for 3D metal printing process, materials and hardware.



  • Experience in conducting hands-on experimental research
