Offer Description

At the Faculty of Process and Systems Engineering at the Institute of Chemistry - subject to the allocation of funds - there is a position to be filled as a scientific assistant (m/f/d)in the field of polymer microgels // Research Assistant in the field of polymer microgels.

 

Recycling, adaptability and applicability as driving forces in the development of polymer-based functional materials can be combined in a single material. For this reason, modular design concepts play an important role. The subject of the advertised position is to explore microscopic hydrogels as such modules for the assembly of integrated polymer systems. In particular, the focus will be on combining a variety of functions on individual building-block level and the controlled assembly and disassembly of corresponding polymer systems.

 

Main responsibilities:

  • Synthesis of macromers / monomers for hydrogel design
  • Processing method: microfluidics
  • Participation in administrative tasks

The opportunity to pursue a PhD is given and is supported accordingly.
