For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up to an obtained doctoral degree.
The Ugelstad Laboratory (https: // www. ntnu.edu/chemeng/research/ugelstad) at the Department of Chemical Engineering has a vacant PhD position, in which microfluidics will be used to generate foams and observe their stability. Foam stability—and instability—is important to control in diverse applications such as fire suppression and food production. Microfluidics permits the fine control of operating conditions and high throughput for statistically meaningful conclusions to be drawn. In recent years, the Ugelstad Laboratory has established new microfluidic techniques to prepare and investigate emulsions, porous media, and nanoparticles. The PhD candidate will expand this expertise to generate foams and manipulate process/operating conditions to gain fundamental understanding of foam physics.
The main supervisor of the candidate will be Associate Professor Nadia Shardt, and a co-supervisor will be identified.Duties of the position
