A PhD Fellowship in Polymer Science is available (for the Innovative Polymers and Advanced Multiphasic Polymers Groups) at the Basque Center for Macromolecular Design and Engineering, POLYMAT Fundazioa (

The candidate is expected to enroll in the PhD program: Química Aplicada y Materiales Poliméricos (Applied Chemistry and Polymeric Materials) at the Faculty of Chemistry, University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) at Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain.

Applicants must have a BSc in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Materials Engineering (or a related discipline) and an MSc where the candidate had acquire knowledge on Polymer Science. A background in Polymer Science is highly desirable.

Good command of written and spoken English is a must (if preselected, a telephone/skype interview will be carried out before the final selection is made). The selected candidate is expected to conduct research, write papers, and deliver a PhD thesis in English.

The subject of the PhD thesis is based on PHOTOINDUCED RING OPENING POLYMERIZATION OF CYCLIC ESTERS: A STEP TOWARDS DIRECT 3 D PRINTING OF SEMI CRYSTALLINE ALIPHATIC POLYESTERS. A background on polymer synthesis, characterization as well as polymer structure and crystallization would be ideal.

Applications should be addressed to these two email addresses:
