The Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences especially pursues basic research in the chemistry and physics of polymers, and as target-oriented applied research gains increasing importance, cooperation with polymer industry becomes vital.
The research comprises the three main areas:
* Biomacromolecular systems
* Dynamics and self-assembling of molecular and supramolecular polymer structures
* Preparation, characterization and use of new polymer systems with controlled structure and properties
An important part of the Institute´s activity is the Ph.D. program in polymer science, carried out in cooperation with universities.
Researchers contributing to a postdoctoral program are welcomed.
Teaching and the practical laboratory training of undergraduate students are considered as an integral part of the IMC´s activities.
