Jobs @ Polymer Synthesis Group

1) June 2019: We are looking for two PhD students for our BMBF-funded projects. The first project focusses on the synthesis of functional monomers and polymers by controlled radical (RAFT) polymerization, and their physical characterization in solution and on surfaces. The bioactivity of the resulting materials will be tested in collaboration with our partners at the university hospital. The second project involves the synthesis of new zwitterionic monomers and their polymerization by ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). The thus obtained polyzwitterions will be tested as catheter coatings. For both projects, experience and good skills in organic synthesis and in polymerization techniques will be needed. Since the project reporting is in German, fluency in German (spoken and written) would be helpful. Other requirements are: - Master's degree in Chemistry - Creativity and team spirit. We encourage out-of-the-box thinking, and value people with social awareness in and out of the lab. - Excellent working ethics. We strictly adhere to the Guidelines for Good Scientific Practice of the German Research Foundation (DFG). - Very good written and spoken English. Please send you application with your CV, academic transkript (Leistungsübersicht) and Master's degree certificate to Karen Lienkamp (lienkamp@....). 2) June 2019: HiWis wanted! We are looking for candidates that study CHEMISTRY and have skills in organic synthesis. Please send your application with your CV and academic transkript (Leistungsübersicht) to Karen Lienkamp (lienkamp@....). 3) June 2019: We also welcome applications from Master or Bachelor thesis candidates in Chemistry, Microsystems Engineering and Sustainable Materials (Polymer track) from the University of Freiburg. Please send your academic transcript (Leistungsübersicht) to Karen Lienkamp (lienkamp@....).
