We are looking for a highly motivated synthetic organic chemist preferably with additional expertise in polymer and/or supramolecular chemistry. The research project lies at the interface of polymer chemistry, materials chemistry, and supramolecular chemistry. It focuses on the design, characterization, and applications of aromatic hydrocarbons and graphene-like structures for gas separation.

Postdoctoral Research Associate - Synthetic Organic/Polymer Chemist

Required Skills

  • Ph.D. Degree in organic/polymer chemistry from a recognized university.
  • 1-5 years of research experience in advanced organic/polymer synthesis.
  • Demonstrated record of expertise in modern synthetic organic chemistry including carrying out reactions under inert atmosphere (i.e. Schlenck techniques).
  • Acquaintance with microwave synthesis and advanced purification and isolation techniques.
  • Excellent communication and computer skills.
  • Fluent in English. Preferred skills
  • Hands-on C-C and C-Z cross coupling reaction methods.
  • Knowledge of polymer and/or supramolecular chemistry.
  • Experience in advanced spectroscopic and surface analyses techniques.
  • Familiar with bibliographical search engines.
  • Good publication record.

Responsibilities

The successful candidate is expected to execute and actively participate in the success of the research projects. The successful candidate will be also expected to:

  • Assist in the design and the planning of laboratory experiments.
  • Support the principal investigator in their research projects particularly in the area of synthetic organic chemistry.
  • Prepare inventories for equipment, chemicals, and supplies.
  • Follow-up the acquisition process of supplies and equipment and will be part of decision-making regarding the purchase of new instruments.
