As research assistant polymer materials, you will be working on the development of polymer materials suitable for processing by additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. You will carry out work in multidisciplinary project teams focusing on the development of AM materials with novel functionalities.   

Typical work activities are: 

• Formulation of AM (photo)polymers, including micro- and nanocomposite formulations; 
• Processing polymers and photopolymers by different AM techniques; 
• Characterization of material properties (mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical); 
• Reporting of research results in form of presentations or written project reports; 
• Proactively collaborating with other members of the project team to realize the targeted project results; 
• Contributing to the TNO/BMC roadmap ‘materials for additive manufacturing’;  

You’ll be responsible for: 

• Excellent execution of experimental work in AM material development, material characterization, and AM processing; 
• Creating demonstrator products;

We expect a proactive project member with a passion for polymer chemistry and polymer processing: 

• Preferably you are holding a bachelor degree in chemistry or chemical engineering, and you have knowledge of polymer materials. 
• You are familiar with commonly used characterization methods for polymers, such as rheology, differential scanning calorimetry, and mechanical testing. 
• Experience with ink or coating formulations, characterization of dispersions and/or experience with 2D or 3D printing is an advantage.  
• You are a good communicator and able to express your thoughts and findings in a clear concise manner, both orally and written. 
• You have experience in working in multidisciplinary project teams.
