Postdoctoral Position in Polymer Synthesis

Professor Krzysztof Matyjaszewski is looking for qualified, highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join the research group at Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland.

The work will be performed as part of large interdisciplinary project (Opus, New Bottle-Brush Copolymers, and Osteoarthritis). This project will involve considerable laboratory work including the design, synthesis and analysis of new copolymers with molecular brush topology, as potential agents for preventing the degenerative disease at various levels of its advancement. The current project proposes the introduction of new functional groups into the structure of molecular brushes, so they will interact with the functional groups of cartilage at various stages of a disease.

Duties: A Postdoc will carry out synthetic and characterization research. This position involves working with undergraduate and/or graduate students.

Qualifications: Applicants must have PhD in Polymer Science or related field, be familiar with air and moisture sensitive synthetic techniques and have a diverse, working knowledge of standard characterization techniques for polymers (GPC, NMR, UV-Vis, DLS). Experience in organic synthesis, materials chemistry and biomaterials would be considered as advantage for this application.

Starting data: By mutual agreement, preferably September/October 2019.

Appointment time: Until further notice, but no longer than 18 months.

Salary: A competitive salary of c.a. 8 000 PLN will be offered (including tax). University may offer a housing assistance.
