We are looking for a synthetic chemist that is interested in making and characterizing photoactive polymer films.
For the past few years, Prof. Billy Oates (Mechanical Engineering) and myself, Ken Hanson (Dept of Chemistry) have been collaborating on a project involving polymer films that exhibit a mechanical response (bending, contracting, relaxing) under irradiation but reverse with heating. These materials are of interest for a number of applications including solar energy harvesting, wireless control of adaptive structures, and optics.
We are interested in getting someone who is primarily a synthetic chemist.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com if you are interested.Best wishes to those interested.
