Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing (CALM)

CALM is a leading independent research centre focused on the development of advanced High Performance Polymers.

Working on both fundamental and applied Additive Manufacturing research, we take a leading role in the coordination of AM research right across the supply chain and investigate all aspects from powder research through to sintering and process investigation.

Recruiting Now! - We have an exciting lectureship position available and several industry funded* PhD studentships (open to students from materials science, engineering or physics disciplines)

We also have other positions and PhDs available, so get in touch at

*These awards provide annual funding to cover Home (UK) tuition fees and a tax-free stipend. International students are eligible to apply, but will be required to pay additional tuition fees as the award will only provide payment for part of the international tuition fee and no stipend.

Working with business

We work with companies around the world to develop new AM solutions. This can be through government funded collaborative research or directly though joint partnerships or PhDs.


Our facilities, together with our knowledge of materials and processing, are at the heart of our work. Find out about the equipment we have here and how we use it for our research.
