The goal of the project is to understand and optimise the role of inhibitors that are added to mortars to minimise the damage to buildings caused by salt formation. This project is a collaboration between Delft University of Technology, Radboud University and Eindhoven University of Technology, employing two PhD candidates. This position concerns the fundamental part of the project in which the Solid State Chemistry group of the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) at Radboud University and the Transport in Permeable Media group of the Department of Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology participate equally. You will work in both groups to benefit from their complementary expertise and techniques.
You will be stationed at both Radboud University and Eindhoven University of Technology, but you will be officially employed solely by Radboud University. IMM is an interdisciplinary research institute in chemistry and physics at Radboud University. Its mission is to perform fundamental research to understand, design and control the functioning of molecules and materials. The goal of the Solid State Chemistry group is to obtain a fundamental understanding of the processes that occur during the growth of crystals. A strong interaction exists between theoretical, computational and experimental methods and a wide range of systems and problems are studied. The goal of the Transport in Permeable Media group is to understand the physics of transport and phase changes in complex permeable media in order to design better engineering materials for a sustainable society. The focus is on fundamental physics questions that need to be answered to achieve a breakthrough in applications.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 22,000 students and 5,000 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent and collaboration. You have a part to play!
