MSc & PhD Positions - Interactions Between Soft Nanoparticles

The Dutcher Lab at the University of Guelph is seeking qualified MSc and PhD candidates to work on the characterization of new nanomaterials based on phytoglycogen (PG), a highly branched glucose polymer produced as compact, soft, hairy nanoparticles in the kernels of sweet corn. Not only are PG nanoparticles useful for applications in personal care and biomedicine, but they also provide an ideal system for studying the physics of soft nanoparticles. The Dutcher Lab uses a wide variety of techniques to characterize the structure, morphology, hydration and mechanical...

MSc & PhD Positions - Deep Learning and Infrared Imaging of Polymers

The Dutcher Lab at the University of Guelph is seeking qualified MSc and PhD candidates to work on the application of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to the analysis of large databases of infrared (IR) spectra collected in IR microscopy images of polymers. The goal in this work is to ultimately understand the degradation and failure mechanisms of polymers used in water transport applications, in collaboration with our industrial partner HeatLink. We are looking for applicants who are excited to contribute to the forefront of the...
