Doctoral position: Synthetic Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis 193 views

The Max Planck Research Group of Synergistic Organometallic Catalysis at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion is inviting applications from a highly motivated doctoral candidate (m/f/d) with a solid background in synthetic organometallic chemistry and catalysis.

About the research:
  • This PhD project aims to design and develop synergistic transition-metal based catalytic systems capable of using green energy as a promotor to activate small molecules relevant in energy research.
  • The candidate will synthesize and study new molecular complexes that are predicted to activate thermodynamically stable building-blocks for the efficient and sustainable formation of C–C, C-N, C-O bonds.
  • The project will be the direct investigation of reactive intermediates that are the keys to understanding bond making and breaking reactions allowing for further optimization of the catalytic cycles.

Qualifications:

  • Applicants must hold a master’s degree in Chemistry or a related subject.
  • Candidates must show solid background in fundamental organometallic chemistry, with emphasis on synthetic aspects.
  • Experience in the handling of air-sensitive and thermally labile organometallic compounds; standard structural characterization techniques such as NMR, X-ray diffractometry, and mass spectrometry is required.
  • Experience with IR, UV-vis spectroscopy, GC, GC-MS, Photochemistry is an advantage.
  • Applicant must possess excellent English-language proficiency (verbal and written).
  • Self-motivated personality with an independent, target-oriented, and systematic working style. A high degree of creativity and flexibility, as well as excellent collaborative skills.

Applications:

Application documents in a single PDF document to be sent to Dr. Werlé via e-mail to christophe.werle@cec.mpg.de with the reference code “CW004” in the subject line) including:
