PhD student position, rheology of nanocellulose suspensions and composites
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.
