Postdoctoral Research – Investigation based on Additive Fabrication Techniques for Functional Components Production
|Sub Research Field:
We are looking for a post doctorate level researcher in the area of materials science for additive manufacturing. The contract will be until the end of the project, which has an estimated duration of 9 month. Work duties include: synthesis and characterization of new functional polymer composites for additive manufacturing, radar-based prototype fabrication and characterization, interpretation of the measured characteritics and device response testing.
Additive manufacturing is gaining on its importance during the recent years. Therefore, new materials including the functional ones are being developed. Herein, the aim is to achieve new types of 3D printed functional components fully fabricated through the additive processes. For specific applications related to electromagnetic interference (EMI) control, it is necesarry to develop new polymer functional inks, which must be transparent to radar.
BCMaterials, Basque Center for Materials, Applications and Nanostructures, is an autonomous
research center launched in June 2012 by Ikerbasque, the Basque Foundation for Science and
the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) as a research center for Materials,
Applications and Nanostructures. The center is included in the BERC’s (Basque Excellence
Research Centers) network and its mission is to generate knowledge on the new generation
of materials, turning this knowledge into (multi)functional solutions and devices for the
benefit of society.
SKILLS AND REQUIREMENTS
- PhD in Chemistry or Materials Science.
- Robust knowledge and experience in the preparation of functional materials for additive
