Nordic Rheology Society

Rheology is defined as the science of the deformation and flow of matter, which means that rheology in some form enters almost every study of material properties. In the Nordic countries, rheological measurements have become standard techniques in both industrial and academic research. The Nordic Rheology Society has been formed as a meeting ground for engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists engaged in rheology in industry and academia.

Treesearch director with focus on paper and pulp - speaker at NRC 2019 We are pleased that Daniel Söderberg, Director at Treesearch (www.treesearch.se), has accepted to speak at the Nordic Rheology Conference in August 2019. His research is related to multiphase flows, specifically in connection to processes related to the manufacturing of forest-based materials. Dr. Söderberg has a background in vehicle engineering and fluid mechanics. Paper and pulp research were on his mind from 1999 when working at Innventia, current RISE Bioeconomy. From 2014 he went back to his Alma Mater, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, as Head of the Department of Mechanics, a role he ended this year when he accepted the challenge as Director of the national research platform Treesearch. He has been active within the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (wwsc.se) and a part of the management team. Welcome to the NRC 2019 in Gothenburg on August 21-23, 2019.

The 56th Nordic Polymer Days will be held in Trondheim, Norway on June 5-7, 2019. The Nordic Polymer Days is the premier Nordic annual conference where researchers and professionals gather to confer around new polymer science developments and applications. Now in its 56th year, the Nordic Polymer Days continues to foster a collaborative environment and facilitate networking opportunities at the intersection of polymer science and technological development. More information can be found from the conference announcement and conference website.

PhD student position, rheology of nanocellulose suspensions and composites
A Phd student position is available on the rheology of nanocellulose suspensions and compo
A Phd student position is available on the rheology of nanocellulose suspensions and composites. The work will address (i) structure-property correlations in the framework of surface treated cellulose nanocrystals and (ii) seek out a fundamental understanding leading towards processing applications. Candidates with a background in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science or related fields are encouraged to apply. Prior experience with Fourier transform rheology and/or extensional rheology will be an asset. The approach will be mainly experimental, however, candidates with a more theoretical background will also be considered. The position will be based at Chalmers University of Technology and will be integrated within the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC). WWSC is a multidisciplinary collaboration between Chalmers, KTH and Linköping University striving for scientific excellence, and the overall aim is to develop new materials from trees. For a broader description and for instructions on how to apply see http://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/bio/research/industrial-biotechnology/Pages/WWSC-recruiting.aspx Position reference: Ref 20180544 PhD:s and postdocs within WWSC project - Biocomposites and wood-based materials For question contact: Roland Kádár Associate Professor Chalmers University of Technology roland.kadar@chalmers.se

As next runner up to the distinguished board of speakers at the NRC 2019 we have Gareth H. McKinley. He is the School of Engineering Professor of Teaching Innovation within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT. His research interests include extensional rheometry, microfluidic rheometry and non-Newtonian fluid dynamics. He has aided in the development of several rheological techniques for characterizing the extensional rheology of polymer solutions, micellar liquids and other complex fluids. Among many awards, he was the recipient of the 2013 Bingham Medal of the Society of Rheology and the 2014 Gold Medal of the British Society of Rheology. During 2015-2017 he was president at the Society of Rheology and he holds a Honorary Chair, Swansea University,. Welcome to the NRC 2019 in Gothenburg on August 21-23, 2019.
