PhD in Chemistry Development of Innovative Printed Irreversible Electrochromic Systems for Application in Sustainable Low-cost Smart Labels

Cardiff University, UK is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position in materials engineering. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for three years in UK. Applications are welcome before October 31, 2019.

The goal of the project is to identify and investigate electrochemically irreversible chemistries and develop tunable one-time activation electrochromic inks and systems and scale-up its production.

This PhD studentship is part of the Innovative Training Network of the European Commission CHARISMA (Chemical Irreversibility to Prototype Responsive Smart Labels). The positions will all last three years and will allow all students to participate in an exciting programme comprising international schools, workshops, and secondments at academic as well as industrial partners.

CHARISMA is a ITN European Industrial Doctorate(ITN-EID) funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions programme, promotes the concept of applied chemical irreversibility to engineer displays for smart labels applications. The EIDs provide training through doctoral research to talented early stage researchers (ESRs).

Through 9 ESR research projects, CHARISMA will establish an intersectoral training and research programme at the chemistry/physics/engineering interface with partners from 5 European countries. CHARISMA ESRs will enrol on PhD degree programmes and be employed for 36 months in a beneficiary organisation. The consortium brings together a unique team of world-leading academic groups and industry, at the forefront of plastic electronics.

Through this team of experts, the ESRs will receive an intensive training in the field of organic chemistry and materials engineering, flexible smart materials/devices, photophysics and electrochemistry, solar-powered technologies and device engineering, with the final goal to shape prime industrial researchers that has been exposed to the development of an irreversible smart label technology.

This post is based in YNVISIBLE, Freiberg, Germany. For more information contact Dr C Pinheiro.

Deadline: October 31, 2019
