PhD in Advanced Heat Sink Materials in The University of Waikato. New Zealand

Qualification type: PhD

Location: Hamilton, New Zealand

Funding amount: NZ $22,000 per annum plus domestic fees for a period of three years

Hours: Full Time

Closes: Until the position is filled

Project Description

Applicants are invited (NZ citizens, permanent residents and international students) for a fully-funded PhD studentship in the School of Engineering of the University of Waikato, in the field of powder metallurgy of advanced materials. The research project is funded by US Air Force, Basic Research of Asian Office of Aerospace R&D, will develop an advanced heat sink composite materials through powder metallurgy route, understand the microstructural evolution and factors affecting composite materials interface formation during the process, enabling increased control over interface quality through the optimisation of processing methods, and overcome the technical challenges for producing composites with high thermal conductivity.


GTP and IIS-FJD get a grant from Mutua Madrileña Foundation

Researchers from the Group of Powder Technologies (GTP) of the University Carlos III of Madrid in partnership with the Microbiologic Department of the Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria of la Fundación Jiménez Díaz (IIS-FJD) has recently obtained a grant in the XVI Call for Health Research of Mutua Madrileña Foundation to conduct a project within 3 years entitled “Design of biodegradable and bactericide sol-gel coatings for the local prevention and treatment of infections associated with biomaterials of clinical devices”. The project is leaded by Antonia Jiménez-Morales at the UC3M and by Jaime Esteban Moreno at the IIS-FJD. Amaya García-Casas and John Jairo Aguilera Correa complete the research team that will be involved in the project. The IIS-FJD is an accredited health research institute, a requirement to request this grant.


XVI JORNADA DE MATERIALES-Materiales para los Retos de la Sociedad: MULTIMAT-CHALLENGE

Last 5th April, MULTIMAT-CHALLENGE programm will celebrate the Second Edition of the Annual Meeting, in the framework of the XVI Jornada de Materiales of the UC3M, in collaboration with the “Álvaro Alonso Barba” Technological Institute of Chemistry and Materials. The meeting was structured in the priority areas of the program: Clean Transport, Sustainable Energy and Health and Well-Being. Students from the program presented the advances in their research through a dynamical and enthusiastic format. The Meeting was a Great success.



Map of Powder Metallurgy R&D Centres

The EPMA has launched a map of PM R&D Centres to boost the collaboration Academia-industry through a better knowledge of facilities and areas of expertise of the Centres specialised in PM throughout Europe. The GTP participates actively in this initiative. More information:

El GTP incluido en la lista de centros de excelencia de investigación de materiales duros por la EPMA.

Esta lista presenta una recopilación de las actividades de investigación actuales en centros de investigación europeos con reconocida experiencia en el desarrollo de aspectos fundamentales y aplicados de las tecnologías de materiales duros.

Estos centros destacan por su carácter potenciador en el desarrollo de redes, enlaces e interacciones formales entre organizaciones industriales y proveedores de investigación en toda Europa.

Great success at the first annual meeting of MULTIMAT-CHALLENGE

On Thursday, April 28 was held the first annual meeting of the R&D program on technologies MULTIMAT-CHALLENGE (, funded by the Regional Government of Madrid and led by the Group of Powder Technologies (GTP) of the University Carlos III of Madrid. The meeting, held within the framework of the Materials Week (Excellence Moncloa Campus), was conceived as a scientific workshop to keep in contact the researchers participating in the program and representatives of partner companies, and to share the advanced and numerous research topics that are being developed within the program in the three areas of interest: transport, energy and health. The meeting attracted more than 120 participants, including PhD students of the participating groups, as well as master and pregraduate students of the participating universities. Read more+
