11 PhD positions in Self-Organization in Soft Matter BEyond AMphiphilicity (BEAM)

Our research:

Self-Organization in Soft Matter BEyond AMphiphilicity (BEAM)

The newly funded Research Training Group (in German: Graduiertenkolleg, GRK) RTG2670 “Beyond Amphiphilicity: Self-Organization of Soft Matter Via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions” at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg will start with a highly interdisciplinary and ambitious research program in May 2021.

We invite applications for 11 PhD positions (3 year contracts).

In total there will be about 25 doctoral researchers who will conduct soft matter research combining fields as diverse as physical chemistry, spectroscopy, synthetic organic and polymeric synthesis, biophysics, biochemistry and biocatalysis, theoretical chemistry and mathematics, to advance the understanding of the emergence of complexity in molecular systems.

In the long run we aim at uncovering design principles for nanostructured materials or aspects of self-assembly in biological systems that go beyond the simple self-assembly processes through amphiphilicity.
