Job description

The research division Biocomposites at the Department of Fibre and Polymer Technology: https://www.kth.se/fpt/biocomposites The group works in a multidisciplinary framework, with competences ranging from cellulose and polymer chemistry to mechanics and processing of composites and molecular dynamics modeling. Focus is on nanostructured biocomposites and cellulose materials. The scientific interest is new material concepts, where structural and functional properties are combined. Material components include nanocellulose, plant fibers, wood, biopolymers, and are used in nanomaterial systems such as aerogels, foams, biocomposites, polymer matrix nanocomposites, inorganic hybrids etc. The post doctor will work directly with Professor Lars Berglund.

In this project, we investigate new material concepts based on cellulose nanofibrils, nanoporous wood fibers or delignified wood films. Interfaces are important, either cellulose-polymer matrix or cellulose-cellulose. Materials will be prepared with multifunctional applications in mind, where mechanical properties are combined with some other function such as optical transmittance, fire retardancy, moisture stability and recycling in mind. Eco-friendly aspects are critical. The larger program is funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation, and about 10 PhD students and postdocs are involved with 5-7 faculty. The long-term interest is in eco-friendly and multifunctional high-technology materials from cellulose.

The post doctor will investigate nanostructured fibrils, wood fibers or delignified wood in multifunctional cellulose materials and biocomposites. Important questions are related to novel material concepts, nanostructural control and an assessment of eco-friendly characteristics.
