Postdoctoral Research Opening

Thermoset Recycling through Dynamic Crosslinking

Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering

Case Western Reserve University

The Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering of Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, Ohio) announces the availability of a postdoctoral research opening in the area of polymer recycling through vitrimerization. This position is open to individuals who hold a Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g, Chemical Engineering, Polymer Science and Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science, etc.) and is expected to be initially a 12-month appointment.

Candidates who have an established research record in areas relevant to thermoset recycling, vitrimer chemistry, dynamic crosslinking are encouraged to apply. The specific goals of the project are to design a strategy employing the associative dynamic bonding concept in transforming permanently covalent crosslinked EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) into a recyclable dynamic network, processable by conventional thermoplastic processing methods.

Further inquiries and application materials (curriculum vitae, descriptions of research interests, and a list of references) should be sent electronically to Professor Ica Manas-Zloczower, Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering, Case Western Reserve University, at (
