Are you interested in electrochemistry and corrosion research and looking for a new job opportunity in the field? Would you like to develop innovative technology with superb colleagues who are top experts in their field? Are you enthusiastic about working with fascinating projects and developing the state-of-the-art research equipment? VTT might be just the place for you.
VTT is one of the leading applied research organisations in Europe. What unites us are curiosity, a passion for learning and a purpose: to solve the biggest challenges of our time and turn them into sustainable growth and well-being. Our cross-disciplinary community of over 2000 brilliant minds is focused on creating impact through science-based innovation. In recent years, we have created ground-breaking innovations such as the world's fastest and most accurate radiation detector, a cancer-sniffing sensor device for smartphones, and a headphone set entirely made of microbial materials. Get to know us further by exploring VTT’s research infra at VTT World.
We are now looking for a Research Scientist, Electrochemistry and Corrosion to join our Materials in Extreme Environments team.
As a Research Scientist your key goal is to master, develop, and apply electrochemical measurements to solve materials’ challenges under demanding conditions. In this position, you will manage and execute materials research projects of various sizes and levels of complexity, actively participate in the preparation of project proposals, and be in a key role in defining the future directions of our electrochemistry and corrosion competencies.
Our team, Materials in Extreme Environments, focuses on experimental materials performance research around topics such as corrosion under a wide range of conditions, electrochemistry, creep and creep-fatigue, and materials characterization. The application fields of the results are broad and directly respond to the industrial needs. As the processes are rapidly becoming carbon free, understanding the materials performance is more important than ever.
