Project on Superhydrophobic materials

Discovery and understanding of novel mechanisms of drops repellence from hydrophobic and super-hydrophobic surfaces constitutes an area of active research from both a fundamental fluidics perspective and is also a source of novel engineering ideas for various applications such as self-cleaning, water resistance and anti-icing. Experiments provide limited insights into the associated flow phenomena mainly due to the hierarchy of scales (from millimeter to sub-micron scale) of the surface texture and difficulty involved in probing the flow inside the droplet.

We are offering a research fellowship of 6 months (+6)  in a highly active research field. The success of the present project will provide an efficient and unique tool for industrial and scientific applications. Salary and other benefits will be discussed during the application. Preferred starting date is January 2018, or earlier as agreed.

The successful candidate has to be eligible for working at the University of Salerno and must have a background in computational science, or materials sciences. Qualified candidates should have good programming knowledge.
The ideal candidate must have a very good knowledge of the English language and a good attitude towards teamwork in a dynamic environment.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a cover letter, comprehensive CV, diplomas and work certificates if any. Please also include reference letters or contacts of at least two references.For further information please contact the thesis supervisor Prof. Stefano Piotto piotto(@)unisa.it .
