Research Assistant - 0.67 working time - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen (PhD candidate)
Project work in the DFG-funded project „rheological control of microemulsions by multifunctional thermoresponsive polymer surfactants“. In the course of this project newly synthesized multifunctional thermoresponsive polymers will be studied with respect to their rheological and structural properties in aqueous solution. Central to this work is the physico-chemical characterisation of the different polymer systems, to be done primarily by means of rheological measurements, static and dynamic light scattering (SLS, DLS), small angle neutron scattering (SANS), fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS), neutron spin-echo (NSE) spectroscopy and fluorescence measurements. The aim is the correlation between the molecular architecture of these polymers and the properties of their aqueous solutions. PhD thesis preparation is possible.
Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in in the field of chemistry or physics; very good grades desired. Comprehensive knowledge in physical and analytical chemistry is required as well as acquaintance with the characterisation of nanostructured systems in solution. Further knowledge in the field of synthesis and characterisation of polymers as well as expertise in experimental instrument-based work is desired. Good English language skills are desired.
