PhD Candidate in Advanced synthesis of lubricant additives
Norwegian University of Science and Technology We are looking for candidates with a background in one or ideally more of these areas: organic chemistry, tribology, experimental physics, chemical engineering, materials science.
Lubrication is a complex problem with many different physical and chemical processes occurring on different length scales. Lubricants are used for achieving the required level of friction and wear rates in moving systems, keeping low wear, controlling friction, minimizing energy losses, etc. A lubricant consists of base fluid and additive package, which is the component in the lowest proportion (1-30%) providing the functionalities to the base fluid. This PhD position has the goal of developing new multifunctional additives to reduce the number of chemicals simplifying lubricant formulations and production methods making the recycling processes easier and affordable for producers, users and policy makers. Achieving this goal will bring forward the green and sustainable goals Europe has set for the future of our economy and our environment. We are looking for a PhD candidate able to synthetize and test the new substances we have in mind for this project.
For more information, please contact Prof. Nuria Espallargas.
Post Doc - DFT simulations of fluids and interfaces
N.I.S.T. LinkedIn Postings for Live Feed The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is recruiting postdoctoral scientists and engineers to join an interdisciplinary team developing a new spectroscopy for intermolecular interactions. The team anticipates the need for physical scientists or engineers in the area of DFT simulations of fluids and interfaces.
The positions are located at the Boulder, CO and Gaithersburg, MD campuses of NIST and a PhD in a related field is highly recommended. The identified candidate may perform work as a physicist, chemist, chemical engineer, material scientist, electronics engineer or similar. Prior experience relevant to the technical area is required. More detailed project descriptions are posted here: https://www.nist.gov/programs-projects/electric-acoustic-spectroscopy-intermolecular-interactions-solution. Interested applicants should send their resume or CV and a cover letter to Dr. Chris Muzny (email@example.com). Review of applications will be ongoing until all positions are filled.
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to join us to study protein-protein and protein-excipient interactions in concentrated protein formulations using scattering techniques. The postdoc will have opportunities to work closely with industrial scientists as well as collaborate with scientists on NIST campus. This position is open for US citizens only.
There is an urgent need to understand protein-protein and protein-excipient behavior in high-concentration formulations sought in many pharmaceutical products. X-ray and neutron scattering have been traditionally used to study long- and short-ranged interactions in a variety of polymer and protein systems. Understanding interactions between monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) including their anisotropic component is critical to accurately predict the properties of concentrated mAb solutions, and model their stability and phase behavior. By closely working with industrial scientists, this project aims to develop methods to extract anisotropic interaction models for pharmaceutically relevant proteins. Combining the theoretical development, experimental efforts using SANS and SAXS, and molecular simulation, we hope to significantly improve the accuracy of anisotropic protein-protein interaction models used to understand mAb-based therapeutic solutions.
