For a joint project with the research group SURF (www.surfgroup.be) on the penetration of water into polymer coatings and subsequent corrosion processes, we are looking for a PhD student. The PhD research will involve both experimental studies using thermal analysis and surface analysis techniques and the development of models to simulate the process.
We are looking for a Master/Engineer in Chemistry and/or Materials Science, with a strong background in polymer science and physical chemistry, having an interest in and hands-on experience with the numerical modelling of physicochemical processes. Fluency in English is required, knowledge of Dutch is a bonus.
Starting date: between July 1 and September 1, 2016
Interested? Please send your cv to Prof. Guy Van Assche (email@example.com)
