PhD Position in High Strength Cellulose Composites

A PhD scholarship in composite materials is available at ETH Zurich. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

ETH Zurich is one of the world's leading universities specialising in science and technology. It is renowned for its excellent education, its cutting-edge fundamental research and its efforts to put new knowledge and innovations directly into practice. The Wood Materials Science Group directed by Prof. Dr. Ingo Burgert at the Institute for Building Materials (D-BAUG) invites applications for a new position.The objective of the thesis is to develop functional high strength cellulose composites, based on the delignification of wood followed by densification. Composites with controllable material density and mechanical performance should be obtained, which can be further optimized by the addition of thermoplastic or thermoset matrices. Prior functionalization of the cellulose scaffolds allows implementing new property profiles such as electrical conductivity or improved flame retardancy into the high-performance natural fibre composites.

The candidate is expected to have a strong background (master degree or equivalent) in Materials Science, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or a related field and should have a strong interest in the development of high performance composite materials based on the renewable resource wood.
