Cambridge University is seeking a PhD candidate interested in studying the mechanics of wet shaving.
The study will be funded by Gillette – so I suspect the results will be something along the lines of shaving is best accomplished by using a Fusion ProGlide.
No, seriously, I would never expect a hallowed institution such as Cambridge to stoop so low. It should be some interesting science. Hope the bloke gets his doctorate for it.
“Gillette have developed instrumentation capability to characterise the mechanical response of hair during shaving.
“The broad aim of the research is to extend the capability through further characterisation of the mechanical aspects of shaving.
“Further characterisation will enhance model fidelity of predictive simulation of the shaving process.
“The PhD project will focus on understanding the mechanical interactions typical of wet shaving.”
