PhD-opportunity in a highly interdisciplinary research environment - Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU), Austria

The Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria) is establishing a graduate college for carrying out frontier science research PhD projects on the nano-analytics of cellular systems (DK NanoCell).

Within the framework of this graduate school, we are currently searching for excellent PhD candidates interested in a thesis with the topic

“Photochemical Control and Nanoscopic Imaging of Protein Translocation“
(DK7, Prof. Knör).

The major goal of this PhD project is to develop, synthesize and characterize caged peptides (conjugates with a stopper molecule carrying a photocleavable protecting group) and to study the mechanism of protein transport through membrane channels in close collaboration with the colleagues from biophysics.

Successful candidates should have a strong background in chemistry, provide solid synthetic skills and should be highly motivated to be working in an interdisciplinary research area at the crossroads of photochemistry and life sciences. Selected PhD students will be employed for at least 3 years with a contract that includes social benefits. They will also be encouraged to spend one semester abroad joining other collaborating laboratories. All selection procedures, training activities, and communication will be in English.

For further information and application form see

Closing date for applications (and official starting date of the college) is: September 1, 2014.

Applications and further questions should be addressed as soon as possible to:

good morning. i am working in enhanced heat transfer using nano fluids & ferro fluids. can someone guide who is the best who can help in making these fluids. i can tie up in various modes

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
