A two-year postdoctoral fellowship chemistry is available at the Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen. The starting date of the postdoctoral fellowship is July 1st 2015.
The successful applicant is expected to have experience in the field of dynamic combinatorial chemistry, and to have worked with organoselenium-based materials. We offer a position in an exciting research environment where synthetic (organic) chemistry is used in concert with physical-organic chemistry, computational methods and spectroscopic methods to solve problems in contemporary organic chemistry.
Postdoctoral positions require qualifications at the PhD level.
The postdoc position is a full-time research position and does not involve any teaching obligations. Note that the position will not contribute to a broadening of pedagogical competencies. Therefore, the postdoctoral position may not alone qualify for appointment as associate professor/senior researcher.
The prerequisite qualifications are in agreement with the stipulations of the Danish Circular on Job structure for Institutions of Higher Education under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation: http://ufm.dk/lovstof/gaeldende-love-og-regler/uddannelsesinstitutioner/filer/job-structure-for-academic-staff-at-universities-2013.pdf
