Student research project on plant-seed based adhesives available

The Department of Sustainable and Bioinspired Materials (Director Prof. Dr. Silvia Vignolini) at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, invites applications from outstanding young scientists to investigate plant seed-based adhesives. 

This project aims to understand the composition, structure and mechanical properties of certain seed mucilages. The first objective is to establish extraction protocols for the different plant seed mucilages and characterize their chemical composition and adhesive properties. Furthermore, the project will plan to analyze the physiochemical interactions between the various polysaccharides and different surface chemistries.

More details about the project and application process can be found here.
