We invite applications for a post-doctoral research associate (PDRA) position to work with Dr Ignacio Martin-Fabiani in the Department of Materials at Loughborough University. The post is available for up to 15 months,

and is part of the “A bioinspired platform technology for next-generation functional paints and coatings” project, funded by UK Research and Innovation. Information about the project can be found on this link

This project aims to harness cutting edge particle and polymer self-assembly methods to produce the next generation of paints and coatings. It will involve the characterization and understanding of the behaviour before and during drying of colloidal dispersions at the nano and microscale combining fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, rheology, and other characterization techniques. There will be a strong component of both on experimental set-up design and advanced data analysis. The resulting insights will be used down the line to develop formulations for functional paints and coatings, such as antibacterial and abrasion resistant, in collaboration with industrial partners from the project consortium. The project will require close collaboration with and potential visits to academic and industrial partners in the UK, France, and Spain.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Ignacio Martin-Fabiani via email at i.martin-fabiani@lboro.ac.uk.
