Open positions at FMolina-Lopez Research Lab
3D printing of highly aligned thermoelectric polymers: The goal of this PhD research is to develop polymer-based thermoelectrics for wearables by using a novel 3D printing technique that uses an external electric field to improve printing resolution while inducing high molecular alignment in the polymer. High molecular alignment will result in a boost of the polymer thermoelectric performance. This project is funded by a European Union H2020 ERC grant 3DALIGN. The ideal starting date is February 2021.

Boosting the performance of printed thermoelectric polymers by molecular alignment: The goal of this PhD project is to develop polymer-based printed thermoelectrics for wearables, and to enhance their performance via tuning their molecular alignment. The focus of this research is on both the processing of the material and its thermal and electrical characterization. This project is funded by a European Union H2020 ERC grant 3DALIGN. The ideal starting date is February 2021.
