Bingham awarded Gareth H. McKinley to NRC 2019
As next runner up to the distinguished board of speakers at the NRC 2019 we have Gareth H.
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,.

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.
