Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion, Mülheim an der Ruhr
Type of Job
Job Offer from January 10, 2017
The Otto Hahn Group „Catalyst Controlled Selective Transformations and Ligand Design“ of the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion offers two positions as PhD student (f/m) at the Organic Chemistry Institute of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. The positions are to be filled as soon as possible and have a fixed term until the 31.12.2019.
In light of the growing requirements with respect to the efficiency of chemical syntheses, it is desirable to enable highly selective catalytic processes with complex, unmodified substrates, thereby obviating the need for using protective groups or to introduce activating/directing groups.
The Otto Hahn Group „Catalyst Controlled Selective Transformations and Ligand Design“ studies the design of ligands or reagents to enable reactions with a large potential for application in efficient organic syntheses that can currently not be induced and controlled in a satisfactory manner.
Salary and working hours are in accordance with the funding guidelines of the Max Planck Society for junior scientists.
The Max Planck Society is committed to employing disabled individuals and encourages them to apply. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society strives to increase the proportion of women in areas where they are currently underrepresented. Women are therefore explicitly encouraged to apply.
Applicants are requested to submit the following documents:
Informal inquiries are welcomed. Please submit your applications until the 14th of February 2017. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
