Early Stage Researcher of 3 years
in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN network UCOM
(Ultrasound Cavitation in sOft Materials)


Host Institution: University of Twente

Supervisors: Prof. Detlef Lohse / Prof. Michel Versluis / Dr David Fernandez Rivas /

Project Title: Surface manipulation and volume control of cavitation

Objectives: (1) To develop an experiment for heterogeneous cavitation nucleation studies on various surface types at microscale level, examining from micro-pit arrangements of various shapes and sizes, coatings etc.; (2) To investigate bubble nucleation and transport formed at these surfaces, under the influence of ultrasound excitation. Investigate free radical transport mechanisms using chemiluminescence (e.g. luminol light emission) and propose relevant models to be used in macroscopic simulations.

The recruited ESR will be enrolled in a PhD programme. In addition to his/her individual doctoral project, the recruited ESR will benefit from a dedicated training programme comprising an integrated curriculum of local and network wide training activities related to the development of scientific knowledge and the enhancement of transferable skills.

The successful candidate will receive a financial package including mobility and family allowance (if applicable), and will be employed according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in a EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks (ITN).
