PhD Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology

Eindhoven University of Technology is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in organic chemistry. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 3 years. There is no application deadline for this position.

The Laboratory of Marcomolecular and Organic Chemistry at the TUE is looking for an Early Stage Researcher (PhD student) to develop his PhD thesis project on the development of chiral organic light emitting diodes based on helical conjugated polymers. The contract will be within the framework of the Marie Skodowska-Curie European Training Network HEL4CHIROLED, whose objective is to train a new generation of early stage researchers in the innovative topic of chiral nanotechnology for opto-electronic devices. HEL4CHIROLED is an international and multidisciplinary consortium comprising 9 academic partners from top European institutions and 2 industrial partners active in the technology market.

- The synthesis and the characterization of a family of chiral conjugated semiconductor polymers driven by supramolecular interactions.

- The study of chiroptical properties of the supramolecular polymers in solution and in thin films.

- Solid background in organic synthesis and/or polymer chemistry and a keen interest in chirality and material studies

- Good communication skills, fluency in English (written and oral), and a strong motivation to do original, fundamental research in an interdisciplinary team.

At the time of recruitment by the TU/e, the candidate must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work or studies) in The Netherlands for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.

- A challenging job in a dynamic and ambitious, multidisciplinary research team at Eindhoven University of Technology. Gross monthly salaries 2.325,- to 2.972,- in accordance with the Collective Labor Agreement of the Dutch Universities (CAO NU). Moreover, a 8% bonus share (holiday supplement) is provided annually. We also offer an attractive package of fringe benefits (including excellent work facilities, child care and sport facilities) and we can help you find accommodation.
