Postdoc for marine interface spectroscopy
Aarhus University
Aarhus, Denmark, Europe

A postdoc in our team will investigate how marine fouling is affected by different plastic surface chemistries. You will collect plastic and rock samples from Baltic waters in collaboration with local divers and determine the surface chemistry of the samples. We will answer the question why some materials do not overgrow after extended periods of time in the water and in how far the surface chemistry plays a role in the process. The overall goal will be to establish new antifouling coatings.
