In the Klinger Lab, we focus on the development of nano-structured polymeric materials and colloids with dynamic and responsive properties. Our research is inspired by nature's outstanding ability to create very specific (macroscopic) functions through molecular and structural design. To approach similar levels of control in synthetic materials, we work on multiple length scales: Starting from the rational design of molecular units, we develop well-defined polymeric architectures and control their self-assembly into ordered superstructures. Additionally, we focus on the use of confinements to create additional elements of hierarchy. The synergy between chemical and structural functionality allows the development of polymeric nanoparticles and -materials for a broad variety of applications.
Working on a research project for a PhD thesis/doctoral dissertation
Participation in research projects regarding the synthesis and characterization of polymeric nanoparticles: Controlling (macroscopic) functionality by tuning internal morphology and overall shape
Participation in teaching (fluent German language skills required)
The candidate should actively participate in research projects in the Klinger Lab. Especially, the development of polymeric nanoparticles with well-defined shapes and internal morphologies should be addressed. For this, concepts from synthetic macromolecular chemistry should be combined with methods from the fields of colloidal chemistry and self-assembly. This includes synthesis and characterization of (macro-)molecular building blocks, their assembly into nanoparticles, characterization of the colloidal materials, and investigations on the resulting macroscopic functionality.
