PhD: Aargauer Arbeitgeber suchen Fach- und Führungskräfte!

31. August 2017, Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Trafo Baden, 10.30 – 17.30 Uhr

Am Begegnungstag Karriere Aargau lernen Sie die Top-Arbeitgeber der Aargauer Wirtschaft kennen.

Wenn Sie Zeit haben, können Sie am Vormittag bei einer Unternehmensbesichtigung einen Blick hinter die Fassade von einem attraktiven Arbeitgeber werfen. Sie können aber auch erst am Nachmittag an der Veranstaltung teilnehmen und im Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Trafo Baden an Informationsständen erste Kontakte mit den Personal- und Linienverantwortlichen knüpfen.

MA: NCCR QSIT INSPIRE Potentials – Master Internship Award for female master students

The National Centre of Competence in Research QSIT – Quantum Science and Technology (www.nccr-qsit.ethz.ch), a research networks within Switzerland,

is proud to announce the INSPIRE Potentials – Master Internship Award.

This award aims to empower excellent female master students who will conduct their master thesis in a laboratory belonging to the NCCR QSIT network.

The awards each consist of a 6-month 8000 CHF fellowship.
The next application deadline is July 15, 2017.

All information on the INSPIRE Potentials Awards can be found on the website of the NCCR QSIT:

This award was initiated in close collaboration with the NCCR MARVEL.

PhD Project at CSEM: VISUAL AND NON-VISUAL EFFECTS OF LED-BASED OFFICE LIGHTING ON HUMANS

PhD proposal CSEM

The objective of the proposed PhD project is to investigate and quantify visual and non-visual effects produced by LED lighting on humans across a wide spectral and photometric parameter space. The proposed research will combine the vast experience and facilities of Professors Cajochen and Scartezzini on the physiological aspects of lighting with those of CSEM in the field of integrated light management solutions for solid-state lighting.

PhD Position: Cascade reaction in giant vesicles

Candidates are invited to apply for a PhD position in the field of nanoscience ay of the University of Basel

In the first step the PhD project has the aim to optimize and further develop the formation of giant vesicles with different block polymers.

In a second important step, the aim is to encapsulate enzymes into the giant polymersomes or other polymersomes/liposomes to get compartmentalized vesicles, as well as the insertion of membrane protein into the artificial polymer membrane to from different kinds of nanoreactors

Project: Cascade reaction in giant vesicles

In the first step the formation of giant vesicles with different block polymers has to be established and optimized. It includes the formation of double emulsion droplets with a microfluidic device to from giant polymersomes, similar to the work already published by Weitz et al.1–4 and the further dewetting process3. There are some informative reviews for further information about droplet microfluidics5–7. During the project, there is also the room for new creative ideas for microfluidic devices.

In a second step, the aim is to encapsulate enzymes into the giant polymersomes or other polymersomes/liposomes to get compartmentalized vesicles, as well as the insertion of membrane protein into the artificial polymer membrane to from different kinds of nanoreactors. The applications are broad, as for example in the field of medical application, energy storage, artificial cells as model system or in material science etc. The direction of the project can be chosen in agreement with your supervisor.
