Reghan J. Hill’s research group

Presently inviting applications for Ph.D. candidates to work within the soft matter research group in the department of chemical engineering at McGill University. Applicants should have a Batchelor degree in chemical engineering with interests in one of more of the following focus areas: materials science, soft-matter physics, applied mathematics. Preference will be given to applicants who are competitive for and have applied for postgraduate scholarships. They will have demonstrated experimental and/or mathematical modelling experience in a chemical-engineering or closely related program of research. 

​

Projects are centred on (i) the synthesis and characterization of nanoparticle-doped hydrogels, using electrokinetic-sonic-amplitude, dielectric-relaxation-spectroscopy, rheology, and light-scattering; and (ii) theoretical modelling using tools of soft-matter-physics, continuum electro-kinetics, and molecular-modelling.
