Interdisciplinary PhD opportunities in Systems Chemistry

We are soliciting PhD applications for the interdisciplinary Innovative Training Network (ITN) in the field of Systems Chemistry entitled “Chemical Reaction Networks: Signal amplification, spatiotemporal control, and materials”.

CReaNet is an EU-sponsored Marie S. Curie network that will generously fund 15 PhD positions in France, Germany, Israel, UK, Sweden, and Switzerland, starting approximately in September 2019. The long-term scientific goal of CReaNet is to develop biocompatible Chemical Reaction Networks (CRNs) for signal amplification and novel (bio)materials.

Research projects range from engineering (enzymatic) reaction networks, mathematical modeling of reaction networks, to nanoparticle assembly, soft matter, and nano-patterning. The 3 or 4 year PhD projects (depending on the host country) will include internships to partner laboratories, and industrial work experience. Exceptional candidates of any nationality are eligible to apply, but they must not have spent more than one of the past three years in the country of their future host institution. Former ERASMUS students are welcome. The work contracts include a mobility allowance, and a family allowance for those candidates that have families at the time of recruitment. Proficiency in English is required. CReaNet will recruit researchers on equal-opportunity basis with respect to gender, race, nationality, and ethnicity.
