• Dynamol - ITN is currently aimed to recruit 9 talented early stage researchers (ESR) for their incorporation to the laboratories of 9 of the partner organizations. The recruited fellows will develop different but interrelated projects on dynamic molecular nanostructures. The training program includes state-of-the-art local training activities and network-wide courses and workshops as well as secondments in partner laboratories. Download the advert.
  • Fellowships for Early Stage Researcher (ESRs) are fundable for three-year periods; additional funding will be made available in countries where PhD training lasts longer than three years. The remuneration will be in line with the EC rules for Marie Curie grant holders.
  • These positions are open to suitable qualified researchers in the first four years of their research career. The fellows must fulfil the eligibility criteria stablished by the FP7/ Marie Curie ITN guidelines mainly on mobility and research experience at time of recruitment.
  • Application procedure: Candidates should send their CV to Shirley Allen. Please include a copy of your University degree and a cover letter outlining your specific qualifications, including contact information for at least two referees and indicate your preferred host group and willingness to be considered for other posts in the network.
  • The following positions are opened:

Dr M. Blom

Localised Surface Functionalization within Microfluidic Channels  Micronit Microfluidics produces innovative and custom based microfluidic components for academic and industrial customers all over the world. At Micronit Microfluidics 1 PhD position is available for the duration of four years. The candidate will join the R&D department and investigate surface functionalization localised to defined positions inside (glass) microfluidic channels. These surfaces will be used to study dynamic covalent interactions and will lead for example to the development of new sensing surfaces. The research will be conducted in close collaboration with the group of Dr. A. Velders at the University of Twente ensuring that there is a solid academic component in the conducted research. Also there will be a strong interaction with the corresponding DYNAMOL ITN PhD in this group. The candidate should have a background in organic chemistry and affinity for microtechnology. Preferably the candidate should be available to start at the beginning of May 2011.
