Post-Doctoral Opening in Mechanics of Composite bonding (KAUST)

The Division of Physical Sciences and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, invites applications for Postdoctoral fellow in Mechanical Engineering at the Mechanics of Composites for Energy and Mobility Lab. (MCEM,

Field of study

A Postdoctoral opening is available in the area of toughening of thermoplastic adhesive tapes.

Performance of secondary bonding or adhesive systems is a key challenges for the successful integration of composite. MCEM has a strong experience in improving toughness and stability of adhesive joints by controlling the dissipation mechanisms, via the design of the microstructure or by introducing spatially depending adhesive properties.

The main goal of this project is to investigate a concept of thermoplastics tapes featuring at least 100 % toughness improvement compared to the raw material used to manufacture the tape, just by specific design of its internal microstructure. This concept can be applied directly to design new thermoplastic adhesive tapes for long-term treatment of human body joints using joint supports without changing either the carrier or adhesive materials.
