Area / Sector

A PhD Fellowship in Chemistry is available in the Polymerization Processes and Theory and Simulation Groups at the Basque Center for Macromolecular Design and Engineering, POLYMAT Fundazioa (

The aim of this project is to exploit recent advances in dynamic polymer chemistry to generate libraries of polymer materials with controllable rheological properties. Within this project we will be trying to advance two scientific aims:

(1) developing a better understanding of how the rheological properties of dynamic polymers can be adapted for specific materials applications

(2) tailored synthesis of dynamic polymers aided by computational modelling. The project is at the forefront of polymer and materials science and is a highly interdisciplinary involving synthesis, characterization, computational modelling and application of polymers.

Applicants must have a BSc and MSc in Chemistry (or a related discipline). A background in polymer science or computational chemistry is highly desirable.

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

Applications should be addressed to Dr. Nicholas Ballard and sent via email in one single PDF to before the 1st October 2020 (applications will be considered upon arrival) including:
(i) a cover letter highlighting their interest in the position.
(ii) curriculum vitae.
(iii) a short description of previous research (1-2 Pages).
(iv) the names and contact addresses (e-mail) of two academic referees.

Please note that because of the large number of applications
