Welcome to the Website of the Giese Lab

 

The Junior Research Group is affiliated with the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the University of Duisburg-Essen and was started in June 2014. Our research field is the synthesis and analysis of supramolecular functional aggregates, especially those with liquid crystalline properties. A major goal is to utilize and control the molecular self-assembly of discotic aggregates and understand the underlying principles in detail in order to develop novel supramolecular liquid crystals for potential applications in optical and electronic devices such as organic solar cells or light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).

 


 

Bachelor- and Master-theses 2016

You are interested in supramolecular functional materials and liquid crystals? - Then contact Michael Giese for more details on prospective Bachelor- and Master-projects or stop by in my office (room S07 S04 C25).

Prospective Students, PhD students and Post-Docs

We are looking for motivated students who are interested in supramolecular materials. Students interested in joining the group for their bachelor or master theses or for a research project (Vertiefungspraktikum) are encouraged to apply.

Applications of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are welcome and we are happy to help highly qualified prospective coworkers with their scholarship applications. For details please contact Michael Giese.
