Applications of carbon nanotube modified polyester resins

Materials Department

Cranfield University

Scott Bader Co and Cranfield University sponsored MSc by Research project

Academic Supervisor:

Professor Ivana K Partridge, Head of Composites Centre, Materials Department

Scott Bader Co. and Cranfield University are undertaking a collaborative research programme looking at the applications of carbon nanotube modified polyester resins, and consequently are seeking a suitably qualified graduate to undertake the year long research project.

The work will include development of the manufacturing process and characterisation of carbon-nanotube filled polyester resin, as well as the optimisation of the formulations as a function of the applications'.

The successful candidate will operate from both Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, UK and the nearby research centre of Scott Bader Company.

Scott Bader Co. is a world leading supplier of high quality, technically superior polyester resins.

Cranfield University is a wholly postgraduate university, where top quality research is strongly linked to industrial applications.

The Composites Centre has extensive experience in the field of thermosetting resin modification and an expanding activity in the area of nanocomposites.

You will be joining two excellent established teams with a long history of successful collaboration.

Successful completion of the project will result in the degree of Master of Science by Research and would suit a recent graduate in Materials Science, Physics, Physical Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.

The intended project start date is between November and January, by mutual agreement.

Entry Requirements:

Applicants should have a 1st or 2.1 UK Honours degree First or Upper Second Class Honours degree, or equivalent, in Engineering or Computer Science/IT disciplines.

Value of Award:

Supported by Scott Bader Co, this studentship will cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate only and provide a bursary of up to £17,000 plus fees.

Details on the overseas student fees are available on our website at: It may also be possible for highly qualified students to extend the research to a 3 years PhD programme.

Conditions apply.
