Recruitment started for MSCA Doctoral Network NanoRAM

We are excited to be part of "NanoRAM" -  an EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Doctoral Network, incorporating 19 organisations across 12 countries. The interdisciplinary network combines physics, chemistry, biology and engineering to train a new generation of scientists in the development and application of newly developed manipulation and characterisation nanotools in soft matter research. The network fosters a strong collaboration between academic and industrial partners with a keen focus on enhancing the career prospects of the doctoral candidates.

We will contribute to this offering a PhD project on "Digitalization of Biomaterial Research via Deep Learning Approaches".

Advanced Polymers and Biomaterials

Biological interfaces with controlled properties

Biological systems are sensitive to surface properties such as chemical, geometry and topological properties.

To achieve control over interactions at the interface of biological systems and their environment, the development of materials in which individual properties can be manipulated at the micro-and nanometer scale is of great importance.

The department of Advanced Polymers and Biomaterials focuses on the targeted synthesis of such materials through manipulation of chemical and physical methods and the study of these materials in biological systems.
