Are you currently pursuing higher education and need to complete a work placement?
We can welcome you in one of our 3 technology departments or into our administrative and support departments, depending on your profile.
The internship position will assist our ongoing investigations on polymer blending and polymer modification. Focus will be put on the following tasks:
· Polymer blending
· Polymer reactive modification and blending
· Characterization of the properties of the resulting materials
· Potentially : ageing resistance characterization of those blends
This internship will consist in exploring a new aspect of our investigations: the addition of biobased polymers (such as aliphatic polyesters: PLA, PBS or potentially starch) in matrices of commodity plastics (e.g. PVC, PET, PVDF, PMMA, PC…) will be evaluated. Besides reactive compatibilization will be run.
Functional properties (mechanical, transparency, fire resistance, scratch resistance, UV resistance …) shall be connected to physico-chemical structure using different techniques (e.g GPC, IRTF, DSC, TGA …).
Finally, a selection of potential applications for the best blends should be envisaged.

You will have the chance to work on very practical security and privacy issues in real life, under the supervision of a well-established security expert. Moreover, you will have the chance to interact with mobility experts in LIST.
The objective of this project is to understand how personal information is collected and used in mobility services. Some well-known examples of such mobility services are Uber (US), Blablacar (Germany), and Krazoo (Luxembourg). By crawling the data, it is expected to understand how much personal information is collected by these services and what kind of profile the service can construct for each user.
Based on the collected data, the second objective is to investigate the security and privacy risks in these services, due to the shared information online and the potential cross-platform inferences.
At last, challenges and opportunities in exploiting aggregated personal data are expected to be clarified.]]>
