Salary: £11,937 p.a.
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 11th January 2022
Closes: 25th February 2022

Start date: April 2022

Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is working on the green nano materials to develop alternatives to costly and environmentally hazardous waterproof analogues. The existing waterproof coatings are made of Fluorocarbons that are bio-persistent and very expensive. The novel and green materials, developed by ESRI, are potentially valuable materials as they can be applied to variety of surfaces to make them environmentally friendly and non-hazardous (e.g. when in contact with skin).

The main purpose of this post is to develop green and environmentally friendly nanomaterials for variety of surfaces. The successful candidate will be expected to assist in the following areas: Identify the required surfaces, develop methods to apply the coatings, gathering, preparation and analysis of data, and present results.

This work can have numerous benefits for environment as well as improving the quality of life. This is because products coated with these materials can be recycled, have durability and used for longer, and can improve consumer’s satisfactions.
