Work offered

Kind of work:
Modern sailing relies heavily on high-tech materials and surface coatings as professional races can be won by differences of a fraction of a second. For this very reason, it is crucial to optimise the ship’s every physical aspect to give the crew the edge it needs to win the race. One of the major aspects is the flow of water over the ship’s hull and the resulting drag. This drag plays a major role, not only for the ship’s speed but also its manoeuvrability and stability. However, the drag desired may not be the same across all components of the ship and thus “one size” does not fit all. For this very reason, we aim to use atmospheric plasma polymerization to create a thin, robust and well-adherent layer that can be varied by the deposition conditions to tailor the hull’s drag according to the location’s need.

For this full-time, multi-faceted and interdisciplinary project, we are looking for a highly motivated, self-driven, independent and creative student. Eagerness to learn and willingness to report frequently is a pre-requisite. Ideally the student has previous experience in chemistry, and/or materials and/or plasma.

The internship will take place at the University of South Australia at the Mawson Lakes campus which is ranked top 50 under 50 (QS, WUR and THE) for a duration of a minimum of 6 months with the possibility of extending up to 12 months. During the internship, a stipend of AUD350 per week (tax-free) will be paid to compensate for living costs. The visa costs and flights are the student’s responsibility.
