Call for New PhD Candidate
AMAC is seeking an exceptional applicant for a PhD project on Composite Marine Propeller Durability. This is a collaborative project between DST Group, an AMAC industry partner and AMAC. This PhD project is part of a DST Group research program to understand durability of composite materials under operational conditions including the effects of water absorption and foreign body impact behaviour.
A stipend of AUD$ 41,209 is available to successful candidates for 3 years, with a possible 6-month extension. Closing date: 15th February 2020
Call for New Postdoctoral Fellow – Composite MaterialsThe Postdoctoral Fellow will provide technical and intellectual input specifically towards a collaborative project between DST Group and AMAC. DST Group who is an AMAC industry partner, is undertaking a research program to understand durability of composite materials under operational conditions including the effects of water absorption and foreign body impact behaviour.
Research Associate, Engineering - dental/bio/materialsYou will contribute to the research activities of AMAC specifically those activities funded by the CRC Projects Grant “Dentistry without mercury: Glass-fibre reinforced flowable dental composite restorative materials”. This is a collaborative project between Industries, University of Sydney and University of Wollongong.
Naval Group and AMAC demonstrate potential new application of composite materialWeight reduction and structural health monitoring of masts to bring broader benefit to entire vessels and naval defence industry.
Naval Group Pacific, in partnership with the ARC Training Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) at UNSW Sydney, has successfully demonstrated how a carbon composite embedded with fibre optics could be used for structural applications in marine vessels. The proof-of-concept test was designed to determine how a composite embedded with fibre optics could be used in the masts of marine vessels that may house vital equipment such as radars and periscopes.
