Beschreibung: We invite highly motivated and creative applicants for a PhD position within a collaborative project between the PolyOrgLab (UNI Maribor, Slovenia) and the Research Group “Polymer Chemistry and Techology” (http://www.ias.tuwien.ac.at/research-divisions/macromolecular-chemistry/polymer-chemistry-and-technology) at the Institute of Applied Synthetic Chemistry (TU Wien, Austria). The PhD candidate will work in tandem and be part of the innovative training network (ITN) “Towards Next generation Eco-efficient PHOTO and EMULSION Polymerizations” funded through the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Programme. PHOTO-EMULSION focuses on new eco-friendly chemical processes for the manufacturing of plastic products. The project aims at training a group of 8 PhD students through a high-quality research network including 8 internationally reputed academic institutions, 4 leading companies and 2 non-profit organisations. Balanced and European-wide, the project’s diversity expresses through the participation of 8 different countries: Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden & Spain.
Methoden: The research project focuses on an efficient method for producing highly porous polymers with cellular interconnected macroporous structure. At TU Wien new bifunctional and polyfunctional thiols and monomers (in particular based on renewable resources) will be synthesized to open the door for novel eco-friendly decorative coatings. At the partner institute, PolyOrgLab, a templating method is adapted, where droplets of an emulsion are used to induce macro pores in the polymer bulk while the monomers are included in the continuous phase. State of the art thiol/ene click reaction will be used within the continuous phase in order to tune both the morphology and mechanical properties of the formed polymer networks since these are important characteristics of the material which are governing the biological cell growth and proliferation. Since the emulsion is highly concentrated, typically the volume fraction of the droplet phase exceeds 70%, the polymer film produced by photopolymerization, exhibits pores on multiple levels. Furthermore, the emulsion templating method is combined with the additive manufacturing technology available at TU Wien and with sintered bead templating method, in order to obtain polymers with an added level of macro porosity facilitating biological cell growth and proliferation. Feedback from cell biology labs will be used to optimize the morphology and mechanical properties and to design the hierarchical structure specifically for the desired type of cells and tissue generation. Furthermore, these novel materials could find application as 3D-printed chromatography columns. The PhD project includes 26 months in the main host institution (TU Wien), a 6-month secondment at the academic partner premises (UNI Maribor), and a 4-month secondment at an industrial partner (Glantreo, Ireland).
Anfangsdatum: 1. September 2018
Geschätzte Dauer: 3 years
Bezahlung: €45,000 Vienna; €39,000 Maribor (pre-tax per year)
Papers: ELIGIBILITY: At the time of recruitment, the candidate must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their recruiting organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to start of the project. Short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
Specific Requirements for Employment:
Master in Chemistry with focus on synthetic organic and macromolecular chemistry. Your field of study is Synthetic Chemistry, and you have experience with polymerization (preferably radical and cationic) and synthesis of organic compounds.
GENERAL CANDIDATE REQUIREMENTS: Candidates can be of any nationality, but are required to undertake transnational mobility. Candidates must be within the first four years of his/her research career.
