We have a post-doctoral position available in our KIT node in Germany @KITKarlsruhe @Cluster3DMM2O focused on advanced photoresist design for 3D laser lithography with the possibility to have a research stint @QUT in Australia


We have developed a self-catalyzed photo-induced thiolene ligation, just out in @J_A_C_S https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/jacs.1c03213 Excellent work by Leona, opening new opportunities for 3D photoresist design and polymer synthesis @QUTmaterials @Cluster3DMM2O @FlorianFeist1 @QUT @KITKarlsruhe
