University of Ghent is offering PhD position in polymers. This position is closed on June 15, 2019.

A doctoral position is available for a period of 42 months in the laboratory of Prof. Ludwig Cardon Our research group focuses on polymer technologies in general and more specific recycling and 3D Printing applications. Therefore we developed substantial expertise in the field of polymer/composite processing, polymer characterization and extrusion based 3D Printing. The candidate will work within H2020 project on CF fibre reinforced 3D Printing for recycled plastics. The candidate will set up design strategies for these materials, investigate and improve the material properties and develop new sustainable products and 3D printing methods/equipment in agreement with the industrial partners. The research will lead to a PhD in Applied Engineering Sciences. The candidate is expected to work closely together with other research in the project and the research group.

The candidate should have knowledge of and/or experience in CF reinforced polymer processing and Additive Manufacturing and related product/material characterization

The candidate should be able to work independently and at the same time be a team player

The candidate should have excellent communication skills and a strong passion for polymer sciences and engineering

An application should enclose a C.V. including a list of courses followed and grades obtained, a short motivation statement explaining your interest in this position, and the names of two persons (preferably professors or researchers with whom you have interacted) who are willing to provide a recommendation letter for your application.
