PhD in Novel Aerospace Materials (Aerospace Engineering Department of Delft University of Technology in close collaboration with the Membrane Technology Group of the University of Twente)

Job description
Currently Delft University is collaborating with the Membrane Technology Group at the University of Twente (UTwente) on a project in which we explore novel, high-performance polymer architectures based on poly(ether-imide) and poly(ether-amide) chemistries as potential materials for high-pressure gas separation applications. In this project we will design and synthesise new monomers and polymers, investigate their thermo-mechanical properties and study their usefulness as films for a variety of gas separation applications (e.g. separation of CO2/CH4 and olefin/paraffin mixtures). You will not only be in charge of polymer synthesis and polymer characterisation but you will also assist with inventorying the membrane properties, which will be done in close collaboration with the UTwente.

The candidate should have the following qualifications:
-An MSc degree, preferably in the field of organic chemistry or polymer synthetic chemistry

-Experience with polymer characterisation (DSC, TGA, DMTA, XRD, GPC) and polymer film processing techniques is a definite advantage.

-Good communication skills

Conditions of employment
TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work week, free high-speed Internet access from home, and the option of assembling a customised compensation and benefits package (the ‘IKA’). Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

Delft University of Technology

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.

Department of Aerospace Engineering
The Novel Aerospace Materials (NovAM) Chair in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology is a multi-disciplinary Chair where research is carried out on materials for demanding aerospace applications. Our work is fundamental in nature and geared towards high-end applications such as composites and functional, high-performance polymers. In the actual development of such applications we collaborate with other groups in our Faculty, other university groups, i.e. TU-Eindhoven, UTwente, Wageningen University, the University of Amsterdam, Cambridge (UK) and UNC Chapel Hill (USA), institutes (NASA, ESA, TNO and Dutch Space) and industry (DOW, Teijin and Corus).
