Post-doc position - characterization of nanoparticles, correlation to toxicity (Berlin, Germany)

A post-doc position is open in the BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, Berlin , Germany (full time, 13 TVöD, 2 years, ending 14.03.2014). The position is part of the FP7 European NanoValid project "Development of reference methods for hazard identification, risk assessment and LCA of engineered nanomaterials", The  overall aim of NanoValid is to deliver valid methods of toxicity testing of engineered nanoparticles (ENP). As a chemist, physicist or engineer in materials or nano sciences you will work on the development and validation of reference pc characterization methods (XPS, AES, SIMS,...) for nano particles.  This will include organization of inter-laboratory comparisons. Furtheremore active participation (reporting, task tracking) in the management of NanoValid workpackage 5 is part of the job. Practical knowledge in the field of pc characterization of ENP and interest in  toxicity testing is desired. We expect a high pro!
 ficiency level in English or German and the ability to work independently and in a team. Send your complete application under reference Kennziffer 9/12 – 6.8 to:
BAM, Referat Z.3, Unter den Eichen 87, 12205 Berlin, Germany,
not later than 29.02.2012.

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
