Overview

PhD candidate position in “Developing and investigating serviceability of the coating resistant to alkali corrosion for aluminosilicate refractories”

Open application for a doctoral candidate in Material science
The doctoral candidate position is available in the Faculty of Civil engineering, Building materials institute, Composite materials laboratory. Applicants interested in other research topics related to refractory materials are also welcome to apply.

Research topic description
Aluminosilicate materials are not resistant to alkali corrosion at high temperatures. Alkali corrosion happens during the reaction of an aluminosilicate material with an alkali vapour, melt, or solid-state alkaline compound. The development of protective refractory coating is the object of planned research.

The selected candidate will work on the PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. dr.Valentin Antonovič. The successful applicant will have to attend scientific conferences, meetings and internships in the other universities.

Requirements
• Required background: high-temperature materials, refractories or ceramics.
It is a prerequisite you can be present at and accessible to the institution daily.

For more information
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview. The position may not be opened if no qualified candidate is found. Additional information regarding the post may be obtained from Prof. dr. Valentin Antonovič, e-mail: valentin.antonovic@vilniustech.lt
