Open Positions

2018-11, PhD position/ Post-doc position

The Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg offers a Ph.D. position (0.5 TVL 13; for 3 years) or a Postdoc position (0.75 TVL 13; for 3 years), respectively, in the Soft Matter area (with option of extension of contract). The candidate should be interested in controlled polymerizations for the synthesis of block copolymers and star polymers. The focus will be on the directed preparation of polymeric structures in a nonequilibrium state (in bulk and at interfaces). Methods for determining interfacial properties and micellar structures will be important, such as time resolved small angle x-ray scattering. The candidate should accommodate himself in a demanding, yet inspiring research environment. Especially, the candidate should become familiar with modern techniques of polymer, interfacial and colloidal chemistry, calorimetry etc. Further, participation in student education is expected. For postdocs, pursuing a possible habilitation and efforts in acquiring own funding are appreciated.

Direct any questions to Prof. Dr. Felix Plamper (felix [dot] plamperatchemie [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de). Please forward your application with the typical documents until the 2nd of January 2019 to the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Dezernat für Personalangelegenheiten, 09596 Freiberg, Germany (referring to job announcement 230/2018).
