Newly established Physical Chemistry group at the University of Siegen - Ph.D. students and postdocs

I would like to bring the following opportunities to your attention and would be
grateful if you could forward this announcement to interested candidates:

In our newly established Physical Chemistry group at the University of Siegen
( ) we will have openings for
prospective Ph.D. students and postdocs. The research topics include:

- Investigation and development of new surface reactions and transport processes in
polymeric biointerface platforms

- Investigation of fundamentals of new concepts for intelligent polymeric sensor
coatings for label-free detection

- Dynamics in Confined Systems by AFM approaches

In general, the Physical Chemistry group is focused on the physical chemistry of
organic & polymeric surfaces and interfaces, biointerfaces, molecular properties and
dynamics in confined systems, as well as surface forces and surface analysis with
scanning force microscopy. We offer in addition to a good infrastructure with
state-of-the-art equipment an optimal embedding of our projects into the
multidisciplinary environment of the Center for Micro- and Nanochemistry and the
Forschergruppe "Lab on Microchip" in Siegen.

Prerequisites for Ph.D. Graduate Students are a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in
chemistry, with focus on "Physical Chemistry", "Polymer Chemistry or Physics" or
"Materials Science" , excellent mastering of the English language, excellent
communication skills, and an undergraduate course record in nanotechnology.
Postdoctoral Research Associates (with Ph.D. degree) are expected to have a proven
record of graduate research excellence in a project-relevant areas, a corresponding
publication record, as well as a strong AFM background.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
