Biofilm formation on materials surfaces – biofouling – has significant economic impact on a wide range of applications and industries. Design of fully fouling-resistant materials and surfaces is a formidable challenge. Yet, fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of biofouling on chemically heterogeneous structured surfaces is still lacking and will be addressed in the project.
The objective of the PhD thesis is the development of amphiphilic fouling-resistant surfaces based on polymeric-based Janus particles. A PhD student will perform the synthesis and structural characterization of polymer-decorated Janus particles and functional surfaces based on them. He/she will be part of a multidisciplinary team of chemists and physicists.
The successful candidate has a MSc degree in Chemistry/Polymer Chemistry/Physical Chemistry/ Material Science. Previous experience with polymeric materials, polymerization and surface modification techniques is highly desired.
A strong motivation for science and proficient written and oral communication skills in English are crucial for the successful completion of this challenging project. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team of chemists and physicists.
Initial contract: 1 year (with the possibility of an extension for two years)
Salary group: TV-L EG 13
