R1 Pre-Doctoral Research Position

Resolution date July 8th 2019

Proposal for the Assignement of the R1 Pre-Doctoral Research Position for Llavor Project (NºRef.26/2019)


Publish date June 16th 2019
N.Ref.26/2019

Project Acronym: Llavor

Project title: 3D printing at high speed and resolution through an innovative strategy of positioning of the added material
Host Institution: Catalonia Institute for Energy Research - IREC
Group: Functional Nanomaterials
Group Leader: Dr. Andreu Cabot

Call for Applications: R1 Pre-Doctoral Research Position

The Functional Nanomaterials Group in the Advanced Materials for Energy Area of IREC announces a short term Research Position available for a highly motivated candidate to work in the Llavor Project: 3D printing at high speed and resolution through an innovative strategy of positioning of the added material.

The project will validate a new and revolutionary technological 3D printing concept based on electrohydrodynamic jetting, which will allow printing speeds over 100 times faster than current technologies based on material jetting. At the same time, the use of charged jets potentially allows creating filaments with a thickness down to 100 nm, thus potentially providing sub-micrometer resolution. This technology will be initially based on inks, which will allow creating 3D structures with any composition, including metals, semiconductors, oxides, and even proteins and biological material. 
The candidate will carry out a multidisciplinary activity with the final aim to validate this new 3D printing project, including ink formulation, 3D printing and structural, chemical and functional characterization of the printed structures.
Candidate must have a PhD degree in Chemistry, Physics, Material Science or equivalent. Previous experience in EHD jetting and ink formulation will very valuable for the position.
