Development and characterization of molecular photonic materials

Objective

Applications are invited for fellowships for post-graduate students from EU countries to receive advanced training in the field of molecular photonic materials. Annually , three fellowships of six months will be available for studies in the following fields:
- Synthesis, characterization, and study of the light-induced processes in multi-component systems or photo/pH-sensitive dendrimers
- Development of luminescent probes, electro luminescent devices or functional rotaxanes
- High-resolution laser spectroscopy using multiphoton ionization and fluorescence excitation techniques Research at the Mol Photonics Training Site is concentrated on "High-resolution spectroscopy of large (supra) molecular systems" and "Photo-induced processes in multicomponent systems". Depending on the preference and skills of the fellow, training comprises hands-on experience with state-of-the-art procedures in synthesis, high-resolution spectroscopy , and time-resolved ( femto-to-microsecond) absorption and emission spectroscopy under the supervision of experts in the field. A broad range of auxiliary facilities (computational methods, X-ray diffraction, spectroscopic techniques) are available to support the training. The MolPhotonics research groups of the Institute of Molecular Chemistry (IMC) take part in the interuniversity Holland Research School of Molecular Chemistry (HRSMC), which organizes seminars, advanced courses and international summer schools for post-graduate students (see homepage HRSMC: http://www.chem.uva.nl/imc/hrsmc) in English. Required is a BSc or MSc in Chemistry . For procedures concerning the application consult the website.
