Nanoparticle characterization in complex media (Leipzig, Germany)

The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) with its 1,100 employees has gained an excellent reputation as an international competence centre for environmental sciences. We are part of the largest scientific organisation in Germany, the Helmholtz association. Our mission: Our research seeks to find a balance between social development and the long-term protection of our natural resources.

An increasing number of nanomaterials are entering the market in every day products ranging from health care and leisure to electronics, cosmetics, energy, agriculture, food and transportion. New properties and forms of these materials make it challenging to provide a suitable legislative framework to ensure safe development of nano-enabled products. The reliable and reproducible characterization of NMs is certainly the most relevant objective. The PhD project aims to develop analytical techniques to characterize nanomaterials in complex matrices such as biological test media. Methods for the analysis of particle distribution in different matrices and for the particle surface characterization will be developed making use of the outstanding infrastructure offered by the UFZ. The project is embedded in a EU project with 25 partners. The candidate will be in close contact with international project partners working in related disciplines.

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
