PhD position for studies on the interaction of nanoparticles in epoxy polymers with special focus on interface mechanics and composition

Scanning Probe Micrsocopy Techniques (Tapping, Force Modulation, Intermodulation Microscopy), confocal Raman imaging, (E)SEM and XPS will be used to investigate nano- and micromechnical properties at the interface between Epoxy Polymers and Boehmite Nanoparticles. Kinetic (N)IR and rheology studies of curing processes complement the available techniques.

Profile

We are looking for a student holding a diploma or MSc in Polymer Science, Physics or Chemistry. The candidate preferably has some experience with polymers, one of the above mentioned microscopy techniques and programming. Another precondition is a degree which enables to start a PhD at the Technical University of Berlin for Dr. rer. nat. or Dr. ing. (http://www.referat-1a.tu-berlin.de/menue/promotion/parameter/en/).

The contract will be for 18 months first and in general is prolonged for another 18 months. Salary will be according to 50% of TVöD 13 (Bund). Basic knowledge of English and German are mandatory, German is necessary, e.g., for safety instruction courses and contact to the machine shop.

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
