• PhD Studentship: Two EPSRC iCASE studentships in Elastomer Composites, Queen Mary University of London

    Two EPSRC iCASE funded PhD studentship opportunities have arisen based in the Soft Matter Group in the School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London.

    The projects collaborate with Schlumberger, the world’s leading supplier of technology, integrated project management and information solutions to the energy industry. Both projects suit graduates from a chemistry, chemical engineering, engineering or materials science background.

    The project will comprise experimental studies at QMUL (supervised by Prof. James Busfield) and the Schlumberger Cambridge Research facility (supervised by Dr Julien Ramier).
