About the Project

ATU Sligo is offering a fully funded PhD studentship.

The main research work will be carried out in ATU Sligo; however, this project is a collaboration with external university therefore part of reach work may be carried out in other universities.  

This project will explore the potentials of nanomaterials in the preparation of electrically conducting wearable devices. This is an interdisciplinary project with various sections of science and engineering. Liquid phase exploitation of graphene/other layered nanomaterials and the preparation electrically conducting nanocomposites will be part of the project. Electro-mechanical properties of the nanocomposites will also be investigated.

 Completed applications should be submitted to to the Research office, Atlantic Technological University Sligo Campus,

To Sean Walker at [Email Address Removed] Closing date 111h of December 2022 before 23:00
