Research tasks to be performed:
The post-doc will participate in the project: „Laser microtexturing as a key technology for development of a new generation of Thermal Barrier Coatings”. The project is carried out as part of a project OPUS 17, funded by the National Science Centre.
The main responsibilities of the post-doc will include:
• analysis of phenomena during plasma spraying, mainly gas-substrate interactions, to assess the influence of surface topography on the coating building mechanism,
• preparation and testing of materials, deposited thermal barrier coatings, including also coatings subjected to high temperature testing,
• participation in the plasma spraying process and taking care on thermal spray laboratory,
• periodic reporting and promotion of research results.


We offer:
– full-time contract (“umowa o pracę”) for 14 months, starting from 01.01.2022.
– gross monthly remuneration: 10000 PLN/month, net approx. 6000 PLN/month.
