Research associate in composites based on graphene and related materials

Submitted by Roni Peleg on Tue, 07/28/2015 - 09:49

A position for an EU-funded Research Associate in the Cambridge Graphene Centre, to work on composites based on graphene and related materials. The post holder will be located in the Cambridge Graphene Centre, 9 JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge CB3 0FA, UK

The aim is to develop a new class of composites able to exploit the mechanical, thermal, optical and electrical properties of graphene, related two-dimensional crystals, and hybrid systems. This is an ambitious frontier research program, with a strong interdisciplinary nature, across engineering, physical, chemical and soft matter sciences, and will require the optimization of inks and solutions based on graphene and related materials, as well as their incorporation in a variety of host substances, ranging from polimers, to glasses, metal, concrete, etc. with the aim of augmenting the mechanical, thermal, optical, or electronic properties of the host material.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Material Science or Electrical Engineering as well as proven expertise (as shown by publications in major international journals) in preparation, optimisation, and characterization of composites based on graphene and layered materials

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 24 months in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
