Open Positions

PhD position in synthetic chemistry (stereoselective catalysis)

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate for a Ph.D. position in synthetic chemistry with focus on catalyst and reaction development. We just published the first method for the stereoselective synthesis of ammonium ions with stereogenic nitrogen centers under catalyst control (doi.org/10.1021/acs.orglett.3c00195). We want to extend the scope and selectivity, develop new reactions and investigate the utility of ammonium ions with stereogenic nitrogen centers.

The successful candidate has a background in organic or organometallic synthesis and experience with the accompanying analytical techniques; in particular, NMR and MS. HPLC experience would be advantageous.

The project will start as soon as possible once a suitable candidate has been identified. More information can be found here.

Internship "Wahlpraktikum in Chemie"

We are always looking for talented Master students.
