The Laboratory for Functional Polymers is looking for a

The PhD student is funded as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks under the European Commission’s H2020 programme. He/she will contribute to the project “Soft, self-responsive, smart materials for robots” as early stage researchers (ESRs).

 

Your tasks:

  • to conduct the synthesis and characterization of new polar polymers
  • to process the polar polymers in thin films and to optimize their properties
  • to conduct mechanical, dielectric and electromechanical tests of the developed materials
  • to develop soft sensors and actuators
  • to introduce the developed materials in soft robotic applications

Your profile:

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a strong background in synthetic organic and polymer chemistry, ability to work in a multidisciplinary field, open to learn new things, and willingness to move countries for ESR placement and temporary secondments. At the time of recruitment, candidates must not have legally resided or have had their main activity in Switzerland for more than 12 months in the last 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
