GLYCO-G Lab 4.0

1 Research Collaborator position
(Deadline April 29th, 2019 12:00 )

Materials Science; graphene oxide; functionalized additives; molecular dynamics; computational chemistry.

Research and technology transfer activity within the project "Multi-property nano additive with UV absorbance and preserving properties" (GlycoG-LAB 4.0) funded within the operative regional programme Call n.1 "Strategic projects of research and development" POR FESR 2014-2020 (action 1.1.5 sub-action a1) CUP 7165.24052017.112000019, related to the study and the optimization of a nano additive for polymeric matrices based on grafene oxide functionalized with biocide components, in order to increase the UV absorbance and the biocide properties of paints and coatings.
The project is developed in cooperation with industrial partners (companies leader in the sectors of paints, textiles, and naval industry: CROMOLOGY Italia spa, BESTE spa, YACHT PRIDE srl) and with research and development centres (Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale per la Scienza e la Tecnologia dei Materiali, Laboratorio Materiali Polimerici Ecocompatibili srl).
The applicant must have a Master Degree in theoretical or applied Chemistry, or in Materials Science, or in Physics, or an equivalent degree in a related area. The PhD title is not a mandatory condition for the appointment, but it will be considered as a preferential title. The candidate must prove from her/his publication track record research experience in at least one of the following topics: molecular dynamics simulations; computational chemistry and quantum chemistry computations; experimental testing of graphene and graphene oxide materials; independent use of the scanning electron microscope for the morphology analysis of materials; modelling and simulation of UV degradation mechanisms of materials.
Formal requirements

Master degree in theoretical or applied Chemistry, or in Materials Science, or in Physics, or an equivalent degree in a related area.

Excellent knowledge of English.
