The graduate school "Biocatalysis in non-conventional media (BioNoCo)"
is seeking applications for scholarships to carry out PhD and
postdoctoral studies. The graduate school, which is funded by the
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), is located at RWTH Aachen
University with Forschungszentrum Jülich and Heinrich-Heine-University
Düsseldorf as associated partners.
The graduate school offers education and research in a stimulating
environment within the highly competitive area of White Biotechnology.
Joint supervision in at least two different teams, interdisciplinary
research and close collaboration within the international community
promote high level qualification and open interesting career
The successful applicants are expected to hold a high level Masters or
Diploma degree in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, (bio–)
chemical engineering or a neighbouring area. Employment equity is one
of our aims. Open positions are now available.
