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.
This project is looking for ambitious, curiosity driven researchers looking to work at the cutting-edge to accomplish something no one in the world has done before.
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.
HDR scholarship – Development of new ionic electrolytes for energy generation and storage devices
The projects will develop new ionic electrolytes, both liquid and solid, with application in a range of electrochemical devices.
