The Institute for Frontier Materials would like to hear from dedicated, smart and curious students and postdoctoral fellows who are keen to further their careers in the field of materials science and engineering research. We have a range of opportunities available, including PhD positions, scholarships and short-term projects.
Students can apply at any time for PhD studies at the Institute for Frontier Materials.
HDR scholarship – Developing methods to monitor and analyse fibre formation in wet-spinning using advanced materials characterisation methods
The significance of this project lies in its aim to provide simple and widely-applicable tools to predict and monitor solidification of filaments in wet-spinning environments. The project will result in a tool-box for the experimenter who wishes to predict, model and test filament formation in wet-spinning, and will enable faster testing and development of novel wet-spinning combinations.
