The Cranium lab, located in the Department of Prosthodontics and Periodontology of the University of Sao Paulo - Bauru School of Dentistry works with the synthesis of polycrystalline ceramic composites, multilayered zirconia, and the development of recycling pathways for waste zirconia blocks to create hydrothermally stable, sustainable and resistant materials for restorative applications.
The postdoctoral researcher will work developing syntheses methodologies of multilayered polycrystalline ceramics, zirconia recycling, graded infiltration, and characterizations, such as: microstructural, optical, and of mechanical properties. The post-doctoral candidate will participate in a multidisciplinary team with collaborative institutions in the country and abroad.
- Experience in: 1) synthesis route of polycrystalline ceramics, graded infiltration, and/or recycling of zirconia; 2) Performing and interpreting microstrucutral, optical, and mechanical property tests (static and accelerated lifetime test), as well as fractographic and Weibull analyses.*
* The presence of international publications in journals of selective editorial policy and high impact factor in the field of the project, in the candidate’s CV will be the main criteria for acceptance of proven experience.
- Fluent english (speaking, reading, and writing)
