To study the formation kinetics of solids from solution

Your tasks

The study of solid formation from solutions is a fascinating research field with many implications, from synthesis of nanomaterials to biomedical applications to functional material properties. Your tasks will be to collect accurate experimental kinetic data from solution via in‐situ techniques, study of the influence of polymeric additives at the early stage of the solid phase formation, develop computational models of the experimental results in the framework of the nucleation and growth theories, and eventually participate in related experiments using large scale facilities.

Your profile

  • Master degree in Chemistry or Material Science
  • Good laboratory skills
  • Good knowledge of English
  • Skills on any programming languages are desiderable
