Starting date: March 16, 2020
The project entitled “Hybrid and elastomeric polymer networks: synthesis, structure and properties” is an interdisciplinary research project focused on development, synthesis, and characterization of novel UV-cured networks for cardiac regenerative medicine, in parallel with the study of their synthesis and characterization. The research work will be conducted in strongly motivated research team and department where multiple international project are being conducted.
The researcher will be responsible for preparation of precursors for photo-curable compositions, evaluation of their physico-chemical properties, elastomeric networks preparation and their characterization, including degradation tests, investigation of photocrosslinking kinetics, mechanical properties assessment, evaluation of surface properties, including water contact angle measurements and adhesion assessment using mechanical tests and fluorescence probes. She/he will also be responsible for preparation of research papers.
Project duration: three years, till February, 2023.
The researcher will be located at the Department of Polymer and Biomaterials Science which is involved in an interdisciplinary research focused on development and investigation of polymeric materials and biotechnological processes, including polymer science, nanotechnology and biomedical engineering. Our special interest is focused on biodegradable polymeric materials for tissue engineering applications as well as for medical techniques (implants, hydrogels, materials for tissue engineering and nanomedicine).
