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.

Plenary speaker for NRC 2020: Daniel Read
Daniel Read is Professor of Soft Matter at the University of Leeds. His areas of interest
Daniel Read is Professor of Soft Matter at the University of Leeds. His areas of interest include polymers, rheology, tube model, branched polymer reactions, stochastic physics and coarse graining proteins. Professor Read is interested in the links between molecular structure, molecular dynamics, flow properties, and reaction chemistry of polymer materials. Understanding this often involves large multidisciplinary teams, including mathematicians, physicists, chemists and engineers.

Postdoc in microstructure optimization and orientation of nanocomposites
Do you want to carry out research on manufacturing of multifunctional nanocomposites? In p
Do you want to carry out research on manufacturing of multifunctional nanocomposites? In particular, we target polymers reinforced with 2D-nano structures, such as graphene and GnP. This project is part of the new competence center at Chalmers, '2D-Materials Based technology for Industrial Applications' - 2D-Tech. The idea is to study active orientation and dispersion control of 2D-nano structures in bulk polymers for optimization of multifunctional properties, e.g. thermal, electrical, mechanical and antimicrobial properties. Information about research and the division You will work in an interdisciplinary team of scientists within the department of Industrial and Materials Science (divisions of Engineering Materials and Material and Computational Mechanics). The position is placed at the division of engineering materials for half-time and the division of material and computational mechanics for half-time, which are two of six research divisions in the department of Industrial and Materials Science. The department has in total approximately 200 employees, and it is one of the leading environments in mechanical engineering research. The research develops the industrial process from need to finished product, while creating added value. By combining skills throughout the chain, the department is distinguished both nationally and internationally. The work contributes to Chalmers vision of a sustainable future through new knowledge, methods and tools for safe and healthy workplaces; product development taking the entire life cycle perspective into account (including recycling); new and improved materials; environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and improved performance of production systems. Major responsibilities •Be part of an interdisciplinary center pursuing 2D-nano research. •Create fundamental understanding of the influence on active orientation techniques. •Enhance composite properties using tailored flow-field - matrix - filler interactions during processing, e.g., extrusion, compression molding. •Predict composite morphology by modeling processing flows. •Develop an analytical mechanical homogenization approach for 2D-nano structures in polymer resin. •Manufacture and test composite performance (thermal conductivity, lightning strike, Kirby-Bauer inhibition, strength, and stiffness). Contract terms Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1). Qualifications We are looking for a candidate who has an interest in manufacturing and charaterization of nanocomposites. You should have a PhD in Polymer or Mechanical Engineering or similar with experience in manufacturing, polymer or composite mechanics, and computational modeling, having taken university courses in Polymer physics, Polymer Processing, Fluid mechanics, Thermodynamics, and Mechanics of composites (or similar). The PhD degree should generally not be older than three years. The ideal candidate will have experience with both thermoplastic polymer processing and thermoset manufacturing. Experience in design of experiments and statistical analysis (of raw experimental data) is of advantage. Good programming and code etiquette (readability, optimization, and organization) skills in Python, C++, Fortran or similar languages is favorable. In addition, fluency in English (both oral and written) is required for this position. Personally, you should be a quality conscious individual who is positive and motivated, independently directed with dedication and persistence, and strong collaboration skills. Please exemplify in your application, if possible, situations or circumstances where these personal skills have been evident. Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers. We offer Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city of Gothenburg.
