About the Project
In this project we are looking for a highly motivated student to work at the interface between polymer chemistry, surface-science and microbiology. In the first stage of the project, we will develop formulation that can prevent exogenous degradation of these natural preservatives. These formulations will be tested both in solution and on surfaces. In a second stage of the project, we will optimise these formulations to modulate the release of these food-preservatives. This project is highly multidisciplinary and involves a collaboration between the Schools of Chemistry (Dr F. Fernandez-Trillo), and Chemical Engineering (Dr Z. J. Zhang and Dr Kostas Gkatzionis)
For further details about the project, please contact Dr Fernandez-Trillo ([Email Address Removed]).
Stipend: RCUK standard rate (plus additional travel allowance in year 1 and a laptop)
