We are always looking for enthusiastic scientists capable of working in an interdisciplinary team. If you are interested in creating materials by simple self-assembly processes, pattern surfaces with high precision without relying on sophisticated equipment or simply enjoy watching colloids on their quest to find an energetic minimum position get in touch

Open position as “studentische Hilfskraft” for anti-biofouling field studies

We are looking for a highly motivated bachelor or master student to help us with field studies testing different self-cleaning surface coatings against biofouling. You will be part of a project trying to find a way to prevent the adhesion of mussels and algae using environmentally friendly coatings. You will support us in planning and building a suitable test set-up for a field study at the “Tiergarten Nürnberg”. Also, you will help evaluating the coated panels for biofouling.

If you enjoy practical work and are interested to help us finding good products to protect the environment, contact us. For more information about the opportunity please contact Teresa.

We welcome applications provided a clear academic and preferably research background in related fields (life science engineering, chemical and bioengineering, materials science, nanotechnology). Please include some information (CV, transcript of records) about yourself.
