One PhD position is open at the moment
PhD position on "Fabrication of microfibers with complex interior "
Background of the project: New generation of smart textiles, where signal perception, processing and imaging occurs inside flexible fibers, requires development of methods for fabrication of fibers with high complex inner architectures. This is, however, extremely challenging task. Basing on own experience, we will develop a revolutionary approach for fabrication of such fibers using shape-changing polymers.
Objectives of PhD thesis: The objective of the PhD thesis is development of novel approach for fabrication of fibers with compex interior using shape-changing polymers as well as electrospinning and understanding of fundamental principles of deposition of polymers and polymer microfibers with controlled orientation.
Requirements and duties: The successful candidate has a MSc degree in Chemistry/Polymer Chemistry/Physical Chemistry/Material Science. Previous experience with polymeric materials as well as their analytical investigation is highly desired. A strong motivation for science and proficient written and oral communication skills in English are crucial for the successful completion of this challenging project.
Salary is according to TVL E13 tariff agreement
Total duration is 3 years.
