Two PhD Positions on Composites (Onshore/Australian domestic students only)

Two PhD Positions on Composite Materials (Onshore/Australian domestic students only).


We are currently looking to recruit two PhD candidates to work on the development of manufacturing processes and technologies for lightweight fibre-reinforced composite materials with complex geometry. Project activities include design, manufacture and testing (including non-destructive testing, NDT) of carbon fibre-reinforced composites. NDT approaches may also expand into sensor technologies for structural health monitoring of advanced composite structures.
