The project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), will investigate production of biodegradable core/shell capsules and gel microbeads, such as alginate, chitosan and poly(lactic acid) using flow focusing glass capillary microfluidic devices.
You will join Micro/Nano- Materials Engineering group whose research interest is centered on production of uniformly sized droplets and particles using membrane emulsification, microchannel emulsification and flow focusing glass capillary devices.
A good honours degree in Science or Engineering and experience in colloid and interface science, particle engineering, microencapsulation, polymer science or related disciplines and excellent communication and interpersonal skills is essential. A PhD in drop microfluidics, emulsion technology, particle engineering or a similar area and experience in microfluidics and microengineering is desirable.
Curriculum Vitae will only be accepted if accompanied by a completed University application form.
