PhD Project - Synthetic Supramolecular Chemistry

This job ad is out of date. Find related Jobs here.

From April 2015 (earlier start maybe possible), the Clever Lab offers a position as part of the CaSuS (Catalysis for Sustainable Synthesis) international PhD program.

Research in the Clever Lab focuses on the design, self-assembly, guest-uptake and functionalization of metal-mediated supramolecular structures such as coordination cages and DNA architectures. The PhD project will deal with the implementation of reactivity and chirality into nanoscopic cavities for the realization of catalytic reactions inside these confined environments.

The applicants should be highly motivated, well organized and willing to work in a challenging research project as part of an international team. Candidates should bring experiences in multi-step organic synthesis, compound purification by flash chromatography and HPLC, and characterization by 2D NMR and optical spectroscopy. Experiences in molecular modeling (Spartan, Gaussian) and catalysis research are highly welcome.

Please send your application documents including a CV, copies of certificates, list of publications/presentations, names of references and a motivation letter, in which you describe what interests you in supramolecular chemistry, catalysis and the research performed in the Clever Lab either by post or by email to Prof. Dr. Guido Clever, directly. Deadline: 26.01.2015.

Further information regarding the program and the application procedures is found on the CaSuS website.

Within the CaSuS doctoral program, supervisors from the Department of Chemistry of the University of Göttingen and the Department of Life Sciences of the TU Braunschweig offer PhD positions on research subjects in the area of catalysis. In addition to cutting-edge research, a specific interdisciplinary educational program including lectures and workshops, conferences, excursions and secondary skill courses, is part of CaSuS. Lectures and courses are held in English, and the thesis must be written in English. The program is intended for selected applicants from all countries holding an excellent academic degree (Master degree, German Diplom or equivalent) in synthetic chemistry. CaSuS is funded by the Ministry for Science and Culture of Lower Saxony.
