At the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University offers: Up to 20 post doctoral positions (based on the availability of funds) (Monthly Salary: up to 135.000 roubles depending on level of experience)
Start: August 1, 2016
The Strategic Initiative "Functional Magnetic Materials for biomedical and energy relevant applications" is a new, coordinated research initiative which includes a PhD program at the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University and partner universities. The Initiative (for details see http://eng.kantiana.ru/5-100/unit/ ) aims at establishing a world-class research environment until 2020. It is devoted - but not limited to - to the theoretical and experimental understanding of functionalized magnetic nanomaterials - ranging from nano-hybrids for biomedical technology to innovative materials for energy applications, e.g. magnetic refrigeration and modern spintronics. Analytical methods - including synchrotron based characterization techniques -, numerical simulations and film/nanoparticles synthesis aspects will play a dominant role. Funds for traveling to international conferences and for visits to foreign universities are provided. Successful candidates will work closely in a team comprised of experimental chemists, physicists and materials scientists as well as theorists.
Application deadline: The positions are available immediately, and will remain open until filled. Application requirements:
The appointments are initially for 6 months, with possibility for another 2 plus 2 years extension pending progress and availability of funds. The application requires an above-average track record. The following documents (all in English) should be send by email as PDF.
• a copy of your university degrees (certified translation into English)
• a curriculum vitae with specific information about your scientific expertise, publication and grant acquisition record.
• a two page research proposal which gives reason to expect excellent research results.
• contact information (phone , email) of at least two university teachers as reference.
• candidates must give proof of their advanced language skills in English.
