Are you a polymer chemist with an interest to apply your expertise for the development of covalent adaptable polymer networks to create mechanically robust, yet processable polymer materials? Do you have a background in synthesis and characterisation of polymers, including rheology and/or dynamic-mechanical analysis? And would you like to work together in a multidisciplinary team of researchers? Then we’re looking for you!
Our group is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work on a project that is aimed at the development of covalent adaptable networks, with a focus on how these polymer networks can be made processable (at elevated temperatures) without suffering creep at room temperature. You will work as postdoctoral researcher on a NWO Vidi project entitled “4D control over smart dynamic polymers”, supervised by Dr. Maarten Smulders, and in close collaboration with two PhD students that have already started. Funding for this position is available for a total of two years, with an evaluation after one year.
