Candidate looking for PhD scholarship in microencapsulation research area

I am currently a second-year master student at Wageningen University and will be graduating at the end of August. I worked on a food grade microcapsul for controlled release at neutral pH while being impermeable at acidic pH during my master thesis, which I am very interested in and want to further pursue in this field. I also did some research on whey protein nanoparticles and magnetic multi-holes carriers during my bachelor. I am looking for a PhD position working on encapsulation of molecules into particles and focus on its physicochemical parameters. I am fluent in English.

9ème Colloque Science et Technologie des Poudres

Les produits solides divisés présentent une part non négligeable des produits, finis ou intermédiaires, mis en œuvre dans l'industrie. Les poudre sont au cœur de nombreuses applications industrielles dans de nombreux domaines tels que la pharmacie, la cosmétique, la chimie, l'agroalimentaire, les matériaux, l'énergie ou l'environnement. Les problématiques scientifiques et technologiques associées à la caractérisation de ces milieux complexes et à leurs procédés de mise en œuvre et de mise en forme relèvent d'un vaste champ pluridisciplinaire incluant le génie des procédés et des produits, les sciences des matériaux, la physique, la physico-chimie des milieux dispersés et la chimie des solides. Dans la continuité des précédents congrès organisés sur ce thème, le 9ème Colloque Science et Technologie des Poudres, a pour vocation de permettre aux différents acteurs universitaires, industriels et équipementiers de se rencontrer pour échanger leurs connaissances et s'informer des dernières avancées scientifiques et technologiques dans le domaine. Il se tiendra du 3 au 5 Juillet 2018 à l'UTC/Compiègne.

How to produce a regular arrangement of droplets of a first liquid in a continuous jet of a second liquid

Inventors from Graz University of Technology are able to provide a technology capable of combining control, adjustability and regularity obtained for pherical capsules produced via microfluidics with the ease of capsule assemblies manipulation offered by fibres or bulk matrices. This ground breaking feature is obtained via the unique topology produced, which consists in a free flowing continuous cylindrical jet containing spherical regular inclusions with a defined spatial periodicity. The production of this structure is achieved via the collision of at least one continuous stream of regular droplets with one cylindrical free flowing jet of another immiscible liquid. The droplet diameter, the droplet spacing and the jet diameter can be independently controlled and varied. The resulting structure can then be hardened, using state of the art principles such as solvent exchange, sol-gel transition, freezing. The hardening step can be performed on the liquid jet only, leaving the inclusions liquid, or on both materials. If you are interested, please use the link or make contact via email
