In the framework of a FWO project a motivated PhD student is sought to work on the utilization of nitrones in synthetic polymer chemistry in the department OBPC/PRD. The project focuses on novel control methodologies in radical polymerization for the precise preparation of well-defined macromolecular architectures with specific properties that may find application in various fields ranging from nanotechnology to industrial bulk polymer production. To reach this aim, the research is carried out at the interface of the fields of contemporary polymer synthesis, state-of-the-art polymer characterization and polymerization kinetics.
Profile and diploma
The candidate is expected to perform research in the area of synthetic polymer chemistry. Candidates will have a master degree in chemistry or an equivalent diploma. A good command of the English language and willingness to perform research in a team-oriented international research environment are recommended.
A two times two years position with a midterm evaluation.
