Doctoral Position in Organic Chemistry, NTNU, Norway

Expires on: 05/25/2024

The position is a PhD Candidate position and will be in the Organic chemistry group ( at the Department of Chemistry at NTNU with a duration of 3 years with a possible extension of 1 year for teaching.

As part of the NRC IPN grant “FramSki – The future of responsible skiing” (FramSki), we have a vacancy for a 3-year PhD position at the Department of Chemistry within the Organic chemistry group. The transition to fluorine-free ski waxes in competitive and recreational skiing demands innovative solutions for reducing ski-snow friction. In the FramSki project, we tackle friction at the macro, micro and nano level in an interdisciplinary research project in collaboration with leading industry partners.

This specific PhD project focuses on the covalent modification of the ski base material. C-H activation through nitrene chemistry is envisioned as a starting point, but other approaches may be considered. The FramSki project also involves research on ski design and surface structuring and friction testing methodology. You will be part of an innovative and cross-disciplinary team and you will learn a lot about ski technology and innovation.
