PhD Studentship in Polymer Chemistry for Biosensor and Bioanalytical at Hasselt University, Belgium

The topic of the PhD research is situated in the area of polymeric materials for application in biosensors and bio-analytical separations, with an emphasis on a number of synthetic organic chemical aspects of the research into molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). In addition to synthesis, there will be attention paid to both a complete characterization of the obtained materials with a variety of analytical techniques as well as the final application of these materials in sensors and separations. In the framework of this project, there will be active collaborations with a multidisciplinary team of research groups both within and outside Hasselt University. Besides research, also a limited contribution in the didactic tasks of the department is expected from the candidate ( assistance in (laboratory) exercises or guidance of internships).

-The candidate is expected to perform research in the area of polymer chemistry for biosensor and bio-analytical applications. -Demonstrated experience in the synthesis of organic molecules and/or polymers -Willingness to collaborate in an interdisciplinary setting. -A good command of the English language Master in Chemistry (or equivalent). – Final year students are (likewise) encouraged to apply.

Scholarship Deadline: no later than 28 July 2011
