One postdoctoral position (full time) / one PhD studentship (part time) (Jena, Germany)

At the Institute of Materials Science and Technology (IMT) of the Friedrich-Schiller-University (FSU) Jena, the following positions are available:

One postdoctoral position (full time) / one PhD studentship (part time)

in Materials Science & Engineering / Physics / Chemistry

The positions are available immediately, subject to approval of funds for 24 months at the Institute of Materials Science and Technology (IMT) of the Friedrich-Schiller-University (FSU) Jena, Germany. The posts are funded jointly by the Thüringer Aufbaubank and industry. The successful applicants will have the opportunity to work at a state-of-the-art facility on biomaterials within one of Germany’s leading research universities.

The Friedrich-Schiller-University is among the leading research universities in the heart of Germany. The Institute of Materials Science and Technology (IMT) focuses on the timely research areas of biomaterials and nanomaterials. The group of Professor Jandt is one of the leading research groups in biomedical engineering in Europe.

The postdoc and the PhD student would conduct research and development on advanced biointerface and implant engineering and testing in close cooperation with industrial partners. Applicants should have a PhD (for the postdoctoral position) or seek a PhD (for the PhD studentship) in materials science, physics, chemistry, biology or a related relevant subject. Previous experience in surface engineering and polymers would be preferred but is not essential. Experience and abilities in several of the following techniques and skills would be desirable but not essential: polymer processing and structuring, AFM, LFM, ellipsometry, contact angle measurements, FTIR, cell culture and protein adsorption tests. For the postdoctoral position, two years of experience after completion of a PhD in would be ideal. Excellent oral and written communications skills are expected.

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
