PhD position summary/title: PhD in MRI elastography and shear measurements of self-healing materials
The goal of this PhD position is to characterize, in situ and in real-time, the multi-scale supramolecular behaviour of a wide range of real-life adaptive networks, encompassing hydrophobic, electrostatic and intramolecular interactions, during or after shear/tensile deformation. NMR/MRI measurements will be conducted, on materials synthesized by the other PhD candidate at PCC, using state-of-the-art high-field spectrometers available at the MAGNEtic resonance FacilitY (MAGNEFY) in WUR, where all these methods are, or can be, implemented on 7 T or 14 T wide-bore spectrometers. Where needed, the worldwide most advanced ultra-high field NMR spectrometers (22 or 28 T) available within the Dutch uNMR-NL consortium will also be used to boost sensitivity and chemical/spatial resolution. All technical developments will be carried out with the support of the workshops at WUR and BIP.
Deadline : September 3rd 2023.
(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: Phd in fabrication and understanding of self-healing materials
Your PhD project will build complementary developments between Physical Chemistry and Soft Matter and Laboratory of Biophysics research groups at WUR synthetic bio-inspired polymers and multi-scale modelling and on in situ MRI techniques and creating an interdepartmental team, of two PhD candidates, capable of unravelling these hierarchical mechanisms in self-healing. You will become part of this interdisciplinary team at the intersection of chemistry and physics and will answer this fundamental question: while a material is just a collection of individual chemical bonds, how do these bonds coordinate and dynamically adapt, at the meso-scale, to restore the macroscopic physical integrity of the material?
Deadline : September 3rd 2023.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Researcher – Root-shoot signaling in plants
SKY HIGH: A NWO-Perspectief Research Programme is an inter-disciplinary consortium of researchers and companies that investigates many aspects of vertical farming from plant physiological research to systems modelling. Within the vertical farming research teams of HPP, this project focuses on root-to-shoot signaling, specifically the effect of root penetration resistance on shoot elongation.
Plants respond to mechanical perturbations by modifying their morphology, a process called thigmomorphogenesis. Thigmomorphogenesis can occur at the location of perturbation, but within minutes a sudden drop in elongation growth can also be observed far away from the perturbed area. This rapid, long-distance communication within plants may be caused by hormonal, electrical, or hydraulic signals. This project will quantify the dose response relationship between root penetration resistance and leaf elongation rates, compare long-term versus short-term responses, assess acclimation to repeated perturbations, and investigate the signals responsible for this rapid long-distance communication.
Deadline : 4 July 2023
