PhD Studentship in Additive Manufacturing (3D-Printing) of Glass-based Multi-material Structures

University of Nottingham - Engineering

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Nottingham
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 6th June 2022
Closes: 25th August 2022

This 3 year PhD studentship is based at the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at The University of Nottingham. For further information about CfAM, please visit https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/cfam/ 

Project description:

Additive manufacturing (AM; 3D-Printing) provides a unique opportunity to create complex geometries without the need for moulds or the use of subtractive methods, including structures which could not be fabricated using traditional technologies. AM of metals and polymers has seen significant progress over the past 40 years with examples of devices and products now in commercial use. However, AM of glass is still at an early stage of development. This is despite the considerable impact that AM would offer to a range of industries that need to produce complex glass objects or components in a reproducible and cost-effective manner.

This project aims to produce complex glass structures from photo-curable suspensions using Additive Manufacturing (3D-Printing) techniques. In particular, the project aims to produce parts with high transparency and additional functionality (e.g. electrical conductivity) in specific areas of the designed part. The successful PhD candidate will print novel materials using cutting edge facilities within the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at the University of Nottingham, UK. They will investigate the relationship between material properties, processing parameters and final part properties. In addition to the expertise and facilities within CfAM, they will be supported by internal and external collaborators, including a UK industrial partner and a Japanese research group (details available if selected for interview).

Eligibility

  • Due to funding restrictions, the position is only available for home/UK candidates
  • Applicants should possess a minimum 2:1 in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or a related discipline. 

How to apply

Please send your covering letter, CV and academic transcripts to cfam@nottingham.ac.uk referring to the project title. Please note applications without academic transcripts will not be considered. 

Closing date: applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis until a suitable candidate is appointed.
