R & D within the Building Materials division is concentrated on the commercialization and development cementitious products, smart polymers, and phase change materials. The research activities ranges from the nano/micro- to the macro scale, i.e. from mechanical determinations to the performance of the materials.
The research attention is on “green” or greener cementitious materials as replacement for ordinary Portland cement. The work varies from large scale lab testing to analysis of the microstructure. The aim is to relate nano/micro structural characteristics with more large scale material properties and performance to be able to make necessary improvements to meet requested properties.
The primary responsibilities of the position are to carry out experimental research. The body of concentration revolves around the replacement of Portland cement with substitute materials such as natural, synthetic and industrial by-products.
Full-time employment. You will be employed at Tower on a twenty four month contract position, you will receive a salary according to current salary arrangements. The contract can be renewed based on findings. Generous bonus structure in place for milestones.
The right applicant for this role preferably has earned a PhD in Civil engineering and has some past involvement in lab work, comprising sizeable laboratory analysis and structural testing on the nano to micro sized scale.
The individual, shall be inherently curious and motivated in a well-organized and clear structure. As a company we are intensely competitive this is mirrored in this position. The role revolves around finding an answer to a single question. You must be willing to answer that question and have a demonstrated interest in cement research.
