A postdoctoral position in supramolecular chemistry and self-assembled materials is available at department of Chemistry at the TU Munich. Ideally the research is funded via a Marie Curie Fellowship that we write together.The researcher aims at developing conceptually new supramolecular materials through non-equilbrium self-assembly for applications ranging from robotics to biomaterials. Research in the group is heavily bio-inspired and uses organic, physical and supramolecular chemistry as its toolboxes.

Boekhoven holds an undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Groningen, where he majored in organic chemistry, and a PhD degree (2012) in chemistry from Delft University of Technology, both in the Netherlands. Before his appointment at TUM, he was a Rubicon postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University in Chicago. In January 2016 Boekhoven was appointed Rudolf Mößbauer Professor at TUM, heading a research group in supramolecular materials.
