Postdoc Researcher on Polymer Brushes for Electronic Nose Applications

The Department of Molecules and Materials, within the Faculty of Science and Technology, at the University of Twente invites applications for the position of Postdoc Researcher on Polymer Brushes for Electronic Nose Applications.

Polymer brushes are coatings is a composition of end-anchored polymers that stretch away from the substrate due to interactions with their neighbouring chains. These brushes absorb vapors of good solvents, which can be used in many applications. In this project, the department will focus on electronic nose applications. They will coat polymer brushes on different sensor platforms and monitor their response upon exposure to different vapor mixtures, with the aim of identifying scents. The project is part of a large Dutch consortium and candidates will be expected to interact regularly international collaborators in online and face-to-face meetings and work visits.

Duration: 1-2 years
