Suitable thermoplastic elastomers are a key enabling technology for soft
This project will design custom co-block brush-polymers with specific
melt-flow and solidified behaviours.
Knowledge of molecular simulation techniques and tools (LAMMPS, GROMACS
etc) and CSIRO’s polymer synthesis flow chemistry technology (RAFT) are
Skills in programming, automatic optimisation, CAD and mechatronics for
design and control of apparatus would be advantageous.
CSIRO will provide stipend for living costs in Australia, an amazing
research opportunity in a world class research team.
What we don’t:
The internships do not provide airfare to/from Australia, nor medical
insurance. CSIRO is a research organisation not a degree-granting
institution. Applicants will need to register for a PhD separately with a
university or equivalent institution.
