Master’s thesis in Multifunctional and smart materials for advanced applications

/ /

A number of technologies, from biomedical applications, energy generation and storage to sensors and
actuators rely on the development of advanced multifunctional nanocomposites in which specific materials
are functionalized with micro/nanoparticles, providing tailored responsive properties.
BCMaterials is searching for motivated master students to develop the thesis within the following areas:
• Active and smart materials
• Nanostructures materials
• Functional surfaces and coatings
• Advanced functional materials
• Micro and nano-devices
Materials will be prepared and characterized, the (multi)functional signals optimized and the ones with the
best performance will be evaluated for implementation into devices.

Work Program / Duties / Responsibilities
A Master’s Final Report must be presented.

Personal Skills and Attributes
The position requires:
• A motivated candidate
• Fluent English
• Good interpersonal and presentation skills.
Previous experience in the fields will be valued.
