Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral Position

Novel Supramolecular Materials based on Molecular Self-Assemblies

A postdoctoral position is available at Max Planck Institute Colloids and Interfaces (Potsdam, Germany) (Prof. Helmuth Mohwald (Department of Interfaces), Dr. Takashi Nakanishi) in the MPI-NIMS International Joint Laboratory, (started since April, 2007), concerning the development and fabrication of novel supramolecular materials based on molecular self-assemblies. The candidate is expected to work independently and to conduct research in a highly interdisciplinary environment. Experience in organic-chemical syntheses, fullerene chemistry, molecular self-assembled soft materials (liquid crystals, ultra thin films), colloidal and interfacial sciences, nanoscience or polymer physics are welcome. The successful candidate should have a PhD degree in chemistry, materials science or a related field. Research experience in supramolecular assembly, organic ultra thin layers and self-organized materials are preferred. Fluent English is mandatory. The position will be available
from January, 2008. We prefer the candidate applies to AvH (Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship).
