Postdoctoral Research Associate in Polymer Physical Chemistry

Department of Chemistry, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh UK

Applications are invited for this one-year post funded by the EU. The
successful candidate will be joining a EU-funded research Network
7 research teams in Europe. He/she will investigate molecular motion and
blend miscibility in polymers using neutron scattering and will closely
interact with partner laboratories to establish links between NMR,
scattering and molecular dynamics simulations. The goal is to develop a
understanding of molecular motion in polymers and its relation with
structure and bulk properties such as mechanical and rheological

This position which is available from 1st August 2000 is open to
of any member state of the European Community, except the United
Applicants should have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics or related subjects.
Experience in scattering techniques (X-ray or neutron scattering) is
desirable. Starting salary up to £ 18,185 per annum.

The candidate will be joining a very active research group with
interests in
polymer blends, liquid crystalline polymers, ion conduction, physical
and polymer dynamics. He/She will be involved in the Network spending
several periods of approximately three weeks in partner laboratories to
discuss and compare the neutron data with results from NMR and molecular
