National University of Science and Technology «MISiS» have announced Open International Grant Competitions designed to support Young scientists (PostDoc) with international background to postdoctoral position at Center of Functional Nano-Ceramics of the NUST MISiS:

Center of Functional Nano-Ceramics conduct research on the fundamentals of self-sustaining heterogeneous reactions in nanostructured media in order to create efficient technologies for producing new materials in the combustion mode.  An important part of the grant is to prepare young specialists in the field of production and study of new materials.

 

Scientific advisors of the Center:

Professor of the Notre Dame University (USA) Alexander Mukasyan (h-index 48)

Professor of the Merzhanov Institute of structural Macrokinetics and Materials Science (Russia) Alexander Rogachev (h-index 27)

Main scientific directions of the Center

  • Obtaining of ceramic submicron and nanopowders by SHS method;
  • Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS), including reactive and flash SPS;
  • Obtaining of ceramic and metallic nanopowders by the Solution Combustion Synthesis method;
  • Joining  of refractory and dissimilar materials;
  • Production of nanocomposite materials based on metallic pseudo-alloys and high-entropy alloys by the combination of high energy ball milling and SPS

 

Current projects and materials:

Ultra-high temperature ceramics based on Hf-C-N, Ta-Hf-C-N

High-entropy alloys Ti-Cu-Al-Ni-Nb, Fe-Ni-Cr-Co-Mn, Ni-Al-Cr-Fe-W(Mo)

High temperature resistant High-entropy alloys Hf-Zr-Ta-Nb-Ti и Hf-Zr-Ta-Mo-Ti.
