Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD student (m/f)
Polymers have become increasingly important to our every day lives and contribute significantly in our economies. In this project, we work in an international consortium comprising academic and industrial partners to develop an eco-efficient and sustainable production route for high-end polymer precursors. In this context, we are looking for two team-players to work in an interdisciplinary research environment.

Polymers have become increasingly important to our every day lives and contribute significantly in our economies. Here targeted polymer building blocks are associated with critical environmental issues, such as generation of toxic waste, salts, and high energy consumption. In this project, we work in an international consortium comprising academic and industrial partners to develop an eco-efficient and sustainable production route for high-end polymer precursors. In this context, we are looking for two team-players to work in an interdisciplinary research environment.
