PhD position in Centre for Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry (Due: 15 February 2010)

In the Centre for Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry one PhD position is open. The research project is mainly experimental and deals with the development of molecular transition metal catalysts for oxidation catalysis using dioxygen. The reactions targeted are important in the production of chemicals from biomass.

The work will consist of organic and inorganic synthesis, spectroscopic characterisation and catalysis tests. The candidate will be trained in working under an inert atmosphere and in elucidating the electronic structure of transition metal compounds. The position is in a new group within the Centre for Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry.

The centre employs ~20 PhD students and post docs in an international environment.
