Study with us

The mineAlloy Training Centre is always looking for new talent and we have a number of postdoctoral positions as well as PhD and MPhil scholarships available. Researchers and students work on projects proposed by our industry partners and under the supervision of senior academics:

Our existing projects include:

  • Next generation of steels for ground engaging tools.
  • Development of new grades of white cast irons for ore chute liners.
  • Optimising steel microstructures for wear resistance.
  • Exploring new hardfacing alloys to optimise carbide fractions.
  • Component design for exploiting additive manufacturing routes.
  • Precipitation hardening of high manganese and Hadfield steels.
  • Design of components and selection of materials for rock crushing applications.
  • Additive manufacturing of cemented carbides.
  • New wear testing methodologies.
  • Development of a predictive tool for material wear using SPH and DEM simulation.
  • Development of new wear sensors and wear sensing techniques.

We are continuously recruiting PhD students and research fellows. If you are interested in any of our projects, please contact us
