PhD student position on modeling of biocomposite processing
Eco-friendly materials and products are important ingredients in a society for sustainable
Eco-friendly materials and products are important ingredients in a society for sustainable development. The Cellulose Biocomposites project is a multidisciplinary effort exploring new opportunities for nanostructured cellulose materials. Research towards new materials and processing concepts is performed, including a sustainability perspective. Participating universities include KTH Royal Inst of Technology, Stockholm, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg and Luleå Univ of Technology. The goals are new material concepts and knowledge towards better performance, new functionalities and eco-friendly attributes.
Biomaterials are a critical ingredient in the context of overarching societal efforts to increase the use of renewable materials. Therefore, the use of polymer with natural fiber reinforcements is expected to increase significantly. A current drive for polymer biocomposites is to maximize the use of renewable content in mass production systems. However, the full potential of highly filled biocomposites cannot be reached without the development of dedicated processing components.

9th Annual Complex Fluids Symposium
12 December, 2019, Mycronic AB, Täby, Sweden
In 2011, a joint research project
12 December, 2019, Mycronic AB, Täby, Sweden
In 2011, a joint research project between Mycronic, Chalmers Technical University (CTH) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) concerning the understanding of the ejection, development and impact of drops of complex fluids was initiated. The research, which is supported by the Swedish Research Council (VR), involves both experimental studies and numerical simulations. An important part of the project is to organize a yearly cross-disciplinary symposium for Swedish industrial and academic parties interested in the fluid mechanics of jetting and complex fluids, either fundamentally or from an applications viewpoint. The goal of this symposium is to help with the proliferation of research results and application requirements. Ample time will also be included to allow for informal discussions. We hope to see you in Stockholm in December!

Postdoc, Rheo-SAXS, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
An outstanding postdoctoral researcher is sought for the development
An outstanding postdoctoral researcher is sought for the development of a new rheometer system to be integrated as a state-of-the-art Rheo-SAXS sample environment at the MAX IV Laboratory, Lund, Sweden. MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists from academia and industry with the brightest X-rays available in the world. Thus, the ambition is to have a sample environment with an international appeal through unique testing possibilities, as well as to support Swedish academic and industrial strengths.
At the end of the developmental project, the goal is to have the rheometer sample environment available for external users at ForMAX and CoSAXS beamlines, to start with. The project is a cooperation between Chalmers and MAX IV and includes personnel across departments/beamlines from both locations.
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of 2 years, starting as soon as possible. The successful candidate will be employed the Division of Engineering Materials, Department of Industrial and Materials Science at Chalmers in Gothenburg, being part of the Rheology Lab, and will work closely with MAX IV in Lund.
To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field; the degree should generally not be older than three years. The ideal candidate for this position will have a background in physics, materials science or related fields with a strong focus on X-ray scattering. Additional experience with rheometry will be an advantage, however, outstanding candidates looking to develop in the area are also encouraged to apply.
