Research Fellow in Molecular Magnetism and MOF Chemistry 479 views

The School of Life Sciences (Chemistry) at University of Sussex is offering a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position for an outstanding chemist to undertake research in the field of synthetic coordination chemistry applied in molecular magnetism. The project will entail the design, synthesis and measurement of new lanthanide single-molecule magnets and their encapsulation in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). The position, which lasts for up to 20 months, must be taken up by 1st July 2021.

  • Candidate must have or should be close to completing, a PhD or equivalent in Synthetic Organometallic/Coordination Chemistry.
  • Expertise in the synthesis and structural characterization of air-sensitive compounds (including glove-box techniques) are essential.
  • Applicant must have experience in experimental aspects of small-molecule structure determination by X-ray crystallography, from crystal growth to preparation of data for publication.
  • Experience of MOF chemistry is advantageous, and you should ideally have experience of organic chemistry for the purposes of ligand synthesis.
  • Applicant will have to demonstrate a willingness to learn about magnetic property measurements and associated data analysis techniques.
  • Applicant should be capable of working under your own initiative and leading a small research team consisting of PhD and undergraduate research students.
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills are therefore required.
