The Soft Matter and Chemistry laboratory is pleased to announce a postdoctoral position in polymer science. The project will focus on synthesizing crosslinked, yet processable, high-density polyethylene by reactive processing. The grafting chemistry and the transformation process will be optimized in order to meet specific requirements related to the targeted applications. As an example, the flow properties, the thermo-mechanical properties and the chemical resistance of the resulting vitrimers will be assessed in details. The project will be conducted in very close collaboration with the industrial partner in order to assess the applicability of the solution developed, as well as to perform numerous application oriented characterizations and tests.
