­­Yolanda Salinas Receives Venia Legendi/Habilitation Certificate

Vice-Rector Alberta Bonanni presented chemist Yolanda Salinas her habilitation/post-doc certificate.

Yoland Salinas (Institute of Polymer Chemistry at the JKU) was presented with her venia legend/habilitation certificate in the subject area of "Polymer Chemistry and Materials Chemistry". Her dissertation titled "Hybrid Functional Organic-Inorganic Materials for Nanomedicine and Optoelectronics " focuses on developing sustainable, degradable organosilica-based nanomaterials to prepare and fine-tune hybrid organic-inorganic lead halide perovskites as highly luminescent ionic semiconductor nanoparticles to be used for optoelectronic and photonic devices.

Those pursuing a habilitation/post-doc undergo an academic evaluation in regard to special qualifications that proves their ability to independently conduct academic/scientific research and teach the entire depth and breadth of their selected subject area [facultas docendi], This, in turn, is the prerequisite to grant authorization to teach that particular subject area [venia legendi].
