Responsibilities/Job Description

Nanocellulose-based materials provide a diverse platform for materials with tunable properties suitable for biomaterial development and tissue engineering, and wet and dry nanocellulose filaments constitute one material concept that can provide elevated mechanical properties and biofunctionalities.

The project will investigate routes for the functionalisation of filaments produced by an unique microfluidic spinning method (flow-focusing) developed at KTH aiming at MedTech applications. The project will primarily be experimental and apply various routes for functionalisation of the fabricated materials and use state-of-the-art experimental techniques for characterisation, e.g. advanced scattering techniques using synchrotron or neutrons.
