PhD position in inorganic chemistry and Molecular Sciences 861 views


Are you exceptionally interested in a fundamentally challenging research project? Do you like to work in an international team of young researchers? We are seeking a PhD candidate who is interested in modern molecular inorganic chemistry research to push the boundaries of transition metal and main group chemistry in the context of C-H bond fictionalization

About the position:

  1. Focus points in this project are the use of redox-active legends and the introduction of base metal (iron) or post-transition metal (zinc, aluminium) in order to establish next-level contributions to the field of C-H animation and beyond.
  2. Opportunities exist to embark on a spectroscopic investigation of a recently communicated Fe-system, in collaboration with a US-based group, as well as further elaboration of catalytic applications thereof.
  3. This project is highly exploratory and formulated open-ended.
  4. This project will be a joint doctorate project between the University of Amsterdam and Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • An MSc in Chemistry with an emphasis on experimental synthetic inorganic chemistry;
  • Ability to collaborate and interact in an international team;
  • willingness to learn new skills and ability to convey knowledge to others;
  • open to working in a bi-location setting and comfortable with remote consultation;
  • interest to acquire a joint doctorate degree from both University of Amsterdam and the University of Oldenburg (Germany);
  • Fluency in English, both written and spoken.
  • Experience in and/or affinity for Organometallic chemistry or homogeneous catalysis is beneficial.

How to apply:

  • Do you recognize yourself in the job profile? Then we look forward to receiving your application, including a motivation letter, CV and a list of publications, by 15 September 2020.
