Post-doc in Organic/Polymer Chemistry

PORT invites applications for a position of

Post-doc in Organic/Polymer Chemistry

to Functional Macromolecules Research Group

ref. no RS/IB/2020/10

Interested in research projects that aim to push the boundaries of polymer science? Our science matters – in Functional Macromolecules Lab we investigate sequence-defined polymers towards new applications in complex materials. We use monomer sequence programmability to induce life-like functions into synthetic macromolecules. It was demonstrated that DNA function – data storage can be performed by sequence-ordered polymer materials.[1] However, to reach for more sophisticated functions as displayed by natural proteins the knowledge gap on polymers folding have to be filled.[2]
