We are looking for a researcher that is expected to strongly contribute to an ambitious project through the development of a doctoral project in the design, synthesis and properties characterization of new block copolymers. At this, each block should consist of random copolymers and possess different properties, such as variation of the glass transition temperature (Tg) in the given range. Various synthetic routes including reversible addition−fragmentation chain-transfer (RAFT) (co)polymerization and anionic (co)polymerization will be utilized to fulfill the task. The resultant block copolymers will be mixed with other components and tested in the tire production. NMR and IR spectroscopy, viscometry, GPC, DSC, TGA, AFM, SEM and TEM techniques will be applied to characterize structural, thermal and morphological properties of the synthesized polymer materials. The selected PhD student will be enrolled in the Material Science Doctoral School of the University of Luxembourg and will develop the research project both at LIST and Goodyear.
