Chemistry is the science which deals with molecular and atomic systems especially with the composition, properties, structure, and reactions of a substance (chemical reactions). Chemistry is closely related to physics and it is a branch of physical sciences. The main task of chemistry is to understand the origin of the substance. The composition of the substance is analyzed at atomic level. Atomic-molecular theory is the base of chemistry sciences. Chemistry differs from physics through the fact that during physical phenomena the substance does not turn into another (material vary on physical properties only) while during chemical reactions the substances transform into another. There are many branches of chemistry such as agro-chemistry, kinetics, cluster chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, solid state chemistry, nanochemistry, photochemistry and theoretical chemistry. Graduates can work in various positions, as chemical technologists, researchers, chemistry analysts, pharmacists, environmentalists, food technologists, oil and petroleum engineers and others.
Max F. Perutz Laboratories (MFPL), a joint venture between University of Vienna and Medical University of Vienna, offer graduate training leading to PhD degrees in diverse areas of molecular biology.
Department of Physics, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich is offering a PhD fellowship for a motivated, creative, and flexible student who is interested in conducting research within the emerging and interdisciplinary field of DNA Nanotechnology. The PhD programme is fully funded by EScoDNA, which is an Initial Training Network (ITN) under the European Commission's Marie Curie Actions research fellowship programme.
The PhD Programme in Chemical Engineering aims at increasing the knowledge of specific topics in the scientific and technological areas of Chemical Engineering and the exploitation of related areas in an interdisciplinary perspective.
This challenging and interdisciplinary research field covers the following subtopics: Advanced Ceramic Sciences / Structure and Process Analysis / Fundamentals of Mass Transport in Porous Ceramics and its Visualization / Modelling and Simulation / Special Application of Porous Ceramics
NOWNANO builds on the world-leading expertise in all nanoscience within Manchester and Lancaster universities to offer a broad interdisciplinary doctoral training centre (DTC). PhD students receive initial training that shows them the breadth and potential of nanoscience, before they focus on mastering one specific area of the subject. NOWNANO DTC offers many extra opportunities compared to traditional PhD, such as student conferences, joint events with other DTCs, innovation and commercialisation training, and outreach events. All these contribute to building a group of outstanding scientists that will help to lead world research in nanoscience in the future.
This programme offers knowledge and expertise for a career in research and managerial roles in manufacturing industry (e.g. food, cosmetics, petrochemical etc), in academia, in the pharmaceuticals and fine chemical sectors, teaching, biomedical research fields.
DTU Nanotech, Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in nanotechnological approaches in environmental chemistry. The position is available from May 1st 2012.
As a part of the CEA (French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission), the National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN) is a higher education institution under the joint supervision of the Ministries in charge of higher Education and Industry.
Biological topics include Biocatalysis, biomimetric chemistry, bioprocessing, chemical biology, cheminformatics, medicinal chemistry, post-genomic science and structural biology.
The PhD course in Chemistry and Materials Technology is aimed at studying chemical, physical or biological properties of materials with special focus on understanding the restrictive conditions within the phases of preparation, characterization, behaviour and the usable properties of inorganic and organic materials.
The CEA is an internationally recognized research organization that benefits from a hybrid engineering and researcher culture that allows synergies between basic research and technological innovation.
IMPRS-MCB PhD program is organized by the Max-Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics and the University of Freiburg. Our scientists are publishing in the high impact factor journals and are internationally renowned experts in their fields. You will have a chance to regularly meet international speakers at the institute and at conferences.
