Job advertisement No. 005 / 2018At the Institute of Physical Chemistry and Polymer Physics (Division Nanostructured Materials), research group Polymer Micro(bio)reactors / ThieleLab - subject to the financial allocation -
PhD position (m/f):
We are part of the DFG Graduate School 1865, an interdisciplinary network of research groups from TU Dresden
and Leibniz IPF Dresden developing novel hydrogel-based microsystems. Here, the ThieleLab (
https://thielelab.com) focuses on the design of multifunctional polymer materials as experimental platform for processes
and functions in biotechnology and cell biology.
Multi-material design for micro-stereolithography
for cell biology and cell-free biotechnology
The PhD position is devoted to develop switchable 4D materials by additive manufacturing. In a holistic approach, the candidate will synthesize tailored resins, process these by novel 3D-printing tools to yield complex polymer structures („From resins to components“). Yearly summer schools organized by the GRK will deepen the candidate’s expertise in bioand material sciences as well as engineering.
Suitable candidates with a master degree in chemistry, engineering (or similar) are skilled in:
- (Photo-)polymer synthesis
- Additive manufacturing based on stereolithography (e.g. Envisiontec P4 Mini, Cerafab 7500, Asiga Pico2)
Starting date: 01.04.2018 Duration: 31.03.2021
Salary: According to German pay grade TV-L EG 13 (65 %)
