Nanoscience Internships

Apply for one of these internships through the Internship Program (IP) (Deadline February 15/October 1) or the campus internship track of the Study and Internship Program (SIP) (Deadline February 15).

 

 

Internship in Colloid Chemistry, Nanomaterials, Interfaces

at Münster University of Applied Sciences

muenster

Supervisor

Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Michael Bredol

Project

Focus: rheometric analysis and study of structure formation in dispersed systems and nanocomposites

Inorganic nanoparticles dispersed in polymers are used for a broad range of applications. In most cases, the interface chemistry between the inorganic component and the polymer is key to understand the microstructure of such composites. On the other hand, many (amphiphilic) polymers are able to develop nanostructures spontaneously. The project will try to follow these and related effects by study of the viscoelastic behaviour of the polymers and nanocomposites.

Tasks

The internship will be concerned with polymer and nanocomposite preparation as well as with rheometric and microscopical analysis, accordingly the character is mostly experimental. Literature review, full documentation and preparation of scientific papers will be included.

Requirements

 

Sound skills in lab practice will be necessary, as independent chemical work will be required. A basic understanding of polymers, colloid chemistry and rheology will be needed as well.

Language Skills

English is the working language in the group.

Duration

3-6 months, according to agreement

Possible Beginning

Feb.15 application deadline: internship betw. Sep./Oct. & Feb.

Oct.1 application deadline: internship betw. March & Aug.

Earlier beginnings may be possible depending on professor's availability

Credits

Up to 6 CP according to agreement, depends also on conditions for recognition at home institution.

Payment

None

Internship in Materials Design and Structural Integrity

at Osnabrück UAS

new osnabrueck flash logo new

Supervisor

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Krupp

Project

  • Fatigue Mechanisms of Engineering Materials (e.g., High-Strength Steel, Cast aluminium alloys, welded Al alloys, adhesive joints)
  • Numerical Modeling of High-Temperature Corrosion Processes
  • Powder-metallurgy-processed nanostructure aluminum alloys

 

The Institute for Materials Design and Structural Integrity is working on the identification of damage mechanisms that limit the service life of engineering metallic materials: fatigue, creep and corrosion in various environments. Currently, 15 researchers are working mostly in third-party funded research projects in close collaboration with industrial enterprises. Almost permanently, students and visiting researchers from abroad are supporting the work of the institute. 

Tasks

 

Experimental work in metallography, light microscopy, electron microscopy, mechanical testing, welding, finite-element modeling, CALPHAD modeling etc.

Requirements

basic knowledge of materials science and engineering (MSE) and materials testing (courses in MSE passed)

Language Skills

English required, basic knowledge in German would be helpful

Duration

Typically 3 – 6 months

Possible Beginning

Feb. 15 application deadline: Possible beginning Sept./Oct./Nov. 2017
Oct.  01 application deadline: Possible beginning Mar./Apr./May 2018

Credits

15 ECTS for 3 months; 1 month = 5 ECTS
According to agreement

Payment
