Special issue in POLYMERS now open for submission!

07.03.19: The special issue „Polymer Material Design by Microfluidics“ of the open-access journal POLYMERS (IF 2.935) is now open for submission. Guest edited by Julian Thiele and Sebastian Seiffert, the focus will be on most recent developments in the application of microflow cells fabricated from PDMS, glass or via additive manufacturing/3D printing to pave the way towards the development of polymer materials with physicochemical and mechanical properties tailored from the nano- to microscale that exhibit novel architecture and functions.

PhD position open (starting date: 1st September 2018) CLOSED

28.05.18: The ThieleLab aims at further broadening its research acitivties on 3D-printing by micro-stereolithography (µSL). Particularly, we are interested in the synthesis of multifunctional polymer materials, which will form the basis for formulations / resins in µSL. In close collaboration with other group members as well as external partners, these pre-polymers / macromers will be processed into defined materials with tailored optical properties, mechanics as well as sensitivity towards external triggers. For that, we currently invite candidates to submit their application to join our group as a PhD student with a strong background in polymer synthesis and macromolecular chemistry.

Please send your application to thiele“at“ipfdd.de.
