PhD positions - Stimuli-Responsive Supramolecular Polymer Systems. (# of pos: 2)

Updated: about 1 month ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 17 Jun 2022

AMI’s Polymer Chemistry and Materials group (Prof. Christoph Weder, Dr. Jessica Clough, Dr. José Berrocal) invites applications for two PhD Positions in the area of Stimuli-Responsive Supramolecular Polymer Systems. 

The research project involves the design, synthesis, and investigation of stimuli-responsive polymers, which change their properties on demand. A new materials systems approach that allows access to dissipative out-of-equilibrium states will be used to create such materials. This principle is ubiquitous in biological materials and essential for the complex structures and functions of living organisms. This concept is expected to afford new polymers that offer a range of hitherto unavailable functions.

Applicants must have a MS degree in Chemistry or Polymer Science, experience in organic and/or polymer synthesis, and wish to pursue interdisciplinary research involving small-molecule and polymer synthesis, polymer processing, and the characterization of various materials properties. AMI offers highly attractive employment  conditions,  and an outstanding infrastructure in a new research facility.

The positions will be filled as soon as possible. Please send your CV, a motivation letter, and contact information of at least two references as one PDF file via E‐mail to ami-applications@unifr.ch with the subject title “Stimuli-Responsive Polymer Systems”.
