In the framework of the SBO project “MoCCHa-CT” (https://www.ugent.be/we/ugct/en/research/moccha-ct) we have an open position for an enthusiastic Post-doc within the Pore-scale Processes in Geomaterials Research group (PProGRess-UGent), member of the UGent expertise Centre for X-ray Tomography (www.ugct.ugent.be).
In this project, one of the existing high-resolution CT scanners of UGCT will be upgraded by a modular X-ray grating interferometer to allow for X-ray phase contrast and dark-field imaging. This technology, combined with conventional X-ray imaging and characterization tools will be applied on building materials for their multi-scale characterization. As a post-doctoral researcher, you will work in a team of postdocs and PhD students and will assist in the characterization of the building stones using this new technology. You will be one of the first, who has access to this new and challenging technology in laboratory environment. This implies that you will be responsible for setting up protocols to perform measurements and interpret the meaning of the obtained data. You will take responsibility in the interpretation of the data in order to perform multi-scale pore characterization.
The FWO-SBO project "MoCCHa-CT: Model-coupled 4D-µCT for advanced material characterization” is a tight collaboration between several academic partners at UGent and the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, ETH, Switzerland, and has an economic finality supported by several industrial partners.
We offer an employment contract of minimum 1 year, starting January 2020 at the earliest, depending on the availability of the successful candidate. More info on living in Ghent can be found on: https://www.ugent.be/en/facilities
