(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position on cellulose-based food packaging materials

Together with our team of experienced scientists and industry partners, you will develop the next generation of sustainable cellulose-based food packaging materials. This project bridges our activities in the fields of cellulose-based materials and composites, nanocellulose production techniques, and practical application testing. Combining fundamental and applied science, the goal is to develop functional and practical food-packaging solutions, which may be implemented as commercial products. We envision that along with the potential development of a commercial product, the generated knowledge will lead to new sustainable materials with applications throughout the speciality coatings and packaging sectors.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in data for circular buildings

You will work in research and development projects in the fields of engineering, archi-tecture, urbanism, and computer science. Looking at both operational and embodied carbon impacts of buildings, you will analyse data at an urban scale in order to foster a transition from a linear to a circular economy in the built environment. You will execute your research ideas in various projects, in close collaboration with our team and our ex-ternal scientific and industry partners. You will support our PhD and postdoctoral students and publish in scientific journals and conferences.

Deadline : December 31th 2021

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in Magnetic Thin Film Multilayers with Interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction Supporting Skyrmions

For this specific project, we will design and fabricate ferro- and ferrimagnet-based thin film multilayer systems using advanced multi-source ultra-high vacuum (UHV) sputter deposition systems. The macroscopic magnetic properties of these systems will be determined using vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The local magnetic properties will be investigated using our home-built quantitative and high-resolution magnetic force micros-copy (MFM) systems. MFM provides sub-monolayer sensitivity for magnetic thin films and all three vector components of the stray field above the sample can be quantitatively measured with a lateral resolution down to about 10nm. The skyrmion dynamics will also be investigated by performing MFM on prototypical devices under applied current pulses.
