M-22120 - PHD STUDENT FOR DIRECTING VITRIMER REACTIVITY AND STRUCTURE FOR RELIABLE THERMAL RESHAPING

Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 14 Jul 2022

The PhD will undertake the synthesis and crosslinking of new vitrimer precursors. During the course of his /her doctoral project, the candidate is expected to develop and synthesize multi-responsive materials relying on dual-exchange vitrimers. Further on, the candidate is expected to participate in the preparation of vitrimer composite materials and study and improve their thermal reshaping behavior. The main goal is to study vitrimer network structure-properties relations with the aim of tuning thermal stamping / forming behavior of the final composite material. The candidate will carry out molecular and thermal/mechanical characterization of the precursors and resultant materials via a range of techniques (among others: NMR, IR, GPC, rheology, DSC, TGA, DMA, tensile).

The selected candidate will make a strong and impactful contribution to the synthesis of vitrimer materials and in their implementation in thermally reshapable composites in practice.
