University of Grenoble and ILL announces PhD position in the field of Physics. This project is funded by theERC advanced grant Glassdef for 3 years. Applicants applying for the position should have a degree in physics or material science and Academic knowledge of condensed matter physics, especially polymer physics will be appreciated. The successful candidate will be employed for a period of up to three years, with a gross salary of around 2350 €/month, together with other benefits depending on the student’s social status.
Study Subject(s): PhD position is provided in Physics.
Course Level: This position is available for pursuing PhD level at University of Grenoble, France.
Scholarship Provider: ERC advanced grant
Scholarship can be taken at: France
Eligibility: Applicants should have a degree in physics or material science. Academic knowledge of condensed matter physics, especially polymer physics will be appreciated.
Scholarship Open for International Students: The students of France can apply for the scholarship.
Scholarship Description: In the course of this PhD work the interface between functionalized solid surfaces and flowing polymeric liquids will be investigated by means of in situ shear neutron reflectometry (NR), which is able to resolve the interfacial structure on a nm scale. The neutron scattering measurements will be combined with interface sensitive rheometry for complementing the structural investigation with dynamic measurements. In order to obtain a comprehensive description of the experimental results the PhD student will also perform coarse-grained computer simulations on model systems and compare the results with theoretical predictions.
Number of Awards: Not known
Duration of Awards: The successful candidate will be employed for a period of up to three years.
