About the Project

Applications are invited for an MSc by Research studentship in the School of Natural Sciences and School of Engineering.

It is expected the successful applicant will commence 1 October 2022.

The capability to print solid lubricants on a range of materials has opened the possibility to enhance the performance of a range of existing dry bearing products by the simple post-production step of printing a solid lubricant on its surface.

This project aims to evaluate the effectiveness of this step on bearing friction while forming a fundamental understanding of the behaviour of the lubricating materials.
