Subject: PhD application (CELLION)
Dear Dr. Zbigniew Stachura,

I would like to apply for a Ph.D. student position inside your CELLION project. Your colleague Prof. Tilman Butz from Leipzig gave me your contact details and I decided to send my application to you.
I have graduated from the Lviv Polytechnic National University (Ukraine) as a Master of Science in Physical and Biomedical Electronics at Semiconductor Electronics Department. The major of our curriculum was devoted to study of physical fundamentals of semiconductor technology. During my research work (preparation of master's thesis) I gained some experience in techniques of directional crystallization process (Czochralski method, Bridgman method, zone melting) and techniques of colloid chemistry (e.g. sol-gel process, graft polymerization). Besides, I had a chance to improve my qualification as computer user. So, I acquired skills in programming (TurboPascal, Assembler); MS Windows, MS Office package and such application-specific programs as WSxM Software (analysis of AFM images), MathCad, Maple, MicroCap etc.
The topic of my diploma thesis was "Formation of Quantum Dots Ensembles, Based on SiO2- Polymethylmethacrylate". The goal of this investigation was to get uniform self-assembled monolayer, constituted by nanoparticles with core-shell morphology, on silicon wafer. The main part of this research was performed at Organic Chemistry Department.

The main fields of my interest are:
- nanotechnology and nanostructures;
- materials for application in optics.

The main results of my investigations were published in the following papers:

1. Kurysko V.V. "Formation of Quantum Dots Ensembles, Based on SiO2-Polymethylmethacrylate". Proceeding of the 61st Student Scientific & Technical Conference. Lviv Polytechnic National University, Institute for Telecommunications, Radio Electronics and Electronic Engineering. Ukraine, Lviv, November 2003.
2. Kurysko V.V., Trotsenko S.E., Tokarev V.S. "Behavior of Nanoparticles with Core-Shell Morphology at Solid Surface." 4th Conference of Young Scientists and Students on Topical Questions of Chemistry. Dnepropetrovsk National University. Ukraine, Dnepropetrovsk, June 2004 (submitted).

Please, find my CV as attachment.

I will be thankful, if you let me know about possibility to be involved in your research program.
Best regards,

Viktor Kurysko.
