PDRA post; 6 month duration, starting in October 2021. Grade 6. This is a 6-month feasibility study funded by Connected Everything. The project aims to explore methods of developing sportswear that can physically adapt on demand (e.g. change shape, texture, colour, self-heal). The goal of this project is to produce a textile sample that can adapt its material properties in response to specific conditions. You will be based in Imagination Lancaster, a world leading Design-based research lab, and work closely with colleagues in Lancaster’s Material Science Institute (MSI) to image, design, and prototype new material technologies. You will be work on two key elements of this project. Firstly, working with our industry partner to identify what material properties would be desirable to re-programme on the fly to enhance sportswear performance, recovery rate, and/or reduce injury. Secondly, working closely with colleagues in MSI to iteratively prototype material platforms and interfaces for programming material adaptations.
