RWTH Aachen - Lehrstuhl II für Physikalische Chemie

A 36 month PhD posi­tion, fun­ded by the DFG is avail­able at the depart­ment of Phy­si­cal Che­mi­stry at RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity under the super­vi­sion of Prof. Wal­ter Rich­te­ring and Dr. Car­los G. Lopez. The pro­ject invol­ves the study of polyelec­tro­lyte dyna­mics in super­coo­led liquids.

Researcher (w/m/d)

Work­ing field:

Polyelec­tro­ly­tes are poly­mers bea­ring char­ged groups along their back­bone, which include important mole­cu­les such as DNA and other natu­rally occur­ring poly­mers (xan­than gum, hyaluro­nic acid etc.). Your work will focus on stu­dy­ing their dyna­mics using rheo­lo­gi­cal and scat­te­ring methods. The use of super-coo­led sol­vents will allow you to slow down the dyna­mics of polyelec­tro­ly­tes in solu­tion, and the­re­fore mea­sure fast rela­xa­tion pro­ces­ses that are usually not acces­si­ble with con­ven­tio­nal rheo­lo­gi­cal tech­ni­ques.

We sup­port our employees in main­tai­ning a good work-life balance with a wide range of health, advi­sing, and pre­ven­tion ser­vices, for example uni­ver­sity sports. We also offer a com­pre­hen­sive con­ti­nuing edu­ca­tion scheme and a public trans­por­ta­tion ticket avail­able at a signi­fi­cantly redu­ced price. RWTH is an equal oppor­tu­nities employer. We the­re­fore wel­come and encou­rage app­li­ca­ti­ons from all sui­ta­bly qua­li­fied can­di­da­tes, par­ti­cu­larly from groups that are under­re­p­re­sen­ted at the Uni­ver­sity. All qua­li­fied app­li­cants will receive con­si­de­ra­tion for employ­ment and will not be discri­mi­na­ted against on the basis of natio­nal or eth­nic ori­gin, sex, sexual ori­en­ta­tion, gen­der iden­tity, reli­gion, disa­bi­lity or age. RWTH is stron­gly com­mit­ted to encou­ra­ging women in their care­ers. Female app­li­cants are given pre­fe­rence if they are equally sui­ta­ble, com­pe­tent, and pro­fes­sio­nally qua­li­fied, unless a fel­low can­di­date is favo­red for a spe­ci­fic rea­son. As RWTH is com­mit­ted to equa­lity of oppor­tu­nity, we ask you not to include a photo in your app­li­ca­tion.
