PhD positions

The Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials has the following job openings for PhD students:

* PhD position in Polymer Crystallization

(Date of publication: January 25th, 2018)

We are looking for an highly motivated candidate for a PhD position in Polymer Crystallization in the group of Polymer Physics at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands). The PhD position is funded by the prestigious Dutch Polymer Institute. The PhD project will run in close collaboration with world-leading polymer companies and with the university of Salerno. The PhD project will last for four years.

Aim: The PhD project will focus on a) understanding the interplay between shear and temperature on the structure of polyolefin films processed by cast film extrusion (CFE) ; b) developing an investigation method to detect surface structures in CFE films by using surface sensitive X-rays techniques; c) in-situ polymer structuring during CFE using X-ray synchrotron radiation (SAXS/WAXS).

Qualifications: we look for a candidate with master degree in chemistry, chemical engineering or equivalent, possibly with previous experience in the field of polymer crystallization and polymer processing. Knowledge of X-rays is a plus. Good written and spoken English proficiency is required.

The PhD position is available immediately and will remain open until filled.

If interested, please submit a letter of motivation and your CV including contact information for academic references to:
