Interview Rheologie Prueflabor Groß

Everything in Flow

"Practical Polymer Rheology” is the topic of the Geesthacht Polymer Days, held on the 18th and 19th of November 2014, at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG). Rheology refers to the study of flow and deformation of materials. Read the interview here with the organiser and HZG Department Head Dr. Ulrich Handge. He discusses his research, the connection to rheology and the topics of the two-day workshop. more


Research in the Nano-Realm

Transparent foils which are conductive and thus use sunlight for generation of energy. Hulls of ships, which no longer rust due to a nano-coating (nano-technology offers numerous surprising solutions for a variety of applications). The new Helmholtz-Group of Academic Talents ‘Nanochemistry and Nanoengineering’ deals intensively with the design and the development of new materials for industrial applications and, as part of the Geesthacht Institute for Polymer Research, the new group thus expands the research programme of the GKSS. more

Neue Graduiertenschule für Lebenswissenschaftler - Berliner Universitätsmedizin feiert Erfolg bei Exzellenzwettbewerb

Mit rund fünf Millionen Euro fördert die Exzellenzinitiative von Bund und Ländern die Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT) bis zum Jahr 2012. Dies gab der gemeinsame Bewilligungsausschuss der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft und des Wissenschaftsrats heute bekannt. Die Graduiertenschule ist eine gemeinsame Initiative von Medizinern, Biologen und Ingenieuren unter Führung der Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin und der Humboldt-Universität. Ebenfalls beteiligen sich das GKSS-Institut für Polymerforschung in Teltow sowie die Universitäten Potsdam, die Freie und die Technische Universität Berlin. more

PhD Position (m/f/d) in Polymer Physics

Date 18.01.2019
Institute Institute of Polymer Research
Location Geesthacht

The Institute of Polymer Research at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is offering a 3-years PhD student position (m/f/d) in the field of polymer physics. The objective of the research project is modelling the process of preparation of polymer membranes for gas separation applications. Methods of non-equilibrium thermodynamics and polymer physics as well as numerical approaches will be applied. A primary objective of the research project will be the prediction of the free volume in dense polymer membranes and a comparison of the modeling results with experimental data. The place of employment is Geesthacht. more
