Process Engineer with opportunity for PhD in Functional Macromolecules Research Group

Interested in research projects that aim to push the boundaries of polymer science? Our science matters – in Functional Macromolecules Lab, we investigate sequence-defined polymers towards new applications in complex materials. We take an advantage of monomer sequence programmability to induce life-like functions into synthetic macromolecules. It was demonstrated that DNA function – information storage, can be performed by sequence-ordered polymer materials. Our current goal is to develop polymers that can read the information towards applications in sensory devices.
