PhD positions in Carbohydrate Materials
Job offer from January 25, 2018
We are currently seeking two highly motivated PhD students to join the Carbohydrate Materials group at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Science Park, Potsdam-Golm). The PhD candidate will work on projects that involve advanced organic chemistry, automated synthesis as well as structural analysis (NMR, TEM, SEM, AFM).
Taking advantage of automated glycan assembly, we synthesize natural and unnatural polysaccharides. These compounds are ideal probes to gain fundamental understanding of the correlations between three-dimensional structure and macroscopic properties of glycans. The results will guide the development of novel carbohydrate-based materials.
The PhD candidate will be part of a friendly, international, and collaborative group of scientists. Experience in organic synthesis, and/or analytical techniques are required. To apply, please send an application letter and your CV to Dr Martina Delbianco: firstname.lastname@example.org
