Title: PHD position in Thermodynamics And Kinetics Of Nano Particle Self-Assembly
This work will be carried out as a PhD project in the newly established Renewable Materials and Nanotechnology Research Group at KU Leuven, Campus Kortrijk, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ir. Wim Thielemans.
Nature builds very complex, multifunctional systems by assembling simple buildingblocks in a directed manner. Compared to this complexity, most manmade structures are relatively simple.
In a biomimetic approach, the research will lead towards creation of hierarchical multi-functional structures with controlled long-range order through self-assembly of multifunctional rodlike nano particles.
Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, or related study
Experience in a research project on nano particle self-assembly, light scattering, and/or thermodynamic measurements and modelling will be regarded as a plus. Strong English skills.
