About the Project

This is an opportunity for a highly motivated and skilled individual (must be an Australian citizen) to undertake a PhD in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University, to develop methods to encapsulate novel photochromic dyes and load them into a variety of host materials. The successful applicant will be supervised by Prof Neil Cameron (Monash) and Prof Richard Evans (CSIRO), who are both located on the Clayton Research Precinct. The project is a partnership between Monash, CSIRO and Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG), and is available to start from 1st January 2023.

A strong background in one or more of the following is desired for this position: polymer chemistry, colloid science, organic chemistry, materials science, materials engineering.
