Postdocof Organic and physical organic chemistry
Department of Chemistry
Faculty of Science
University of Copenhagen
The PD fellow will work within organic chemistry with the focus on functionalizing biomolecules in water. Our aim is to control reactions involving reactive intermediates, such as cations, in a way, which allows the chemistry to be performed under aqueous conditions. This will be achieved by developing organic catalysts, which can recognize the substrates and secure selective reaction. Understanding the mechanistic aspects is key to us and hence the candidate should have a profound knowledge about physical organic chemistry as well as being a very experiences experimentalist. The candidate has to possess significant research experience within organic synthesis and biomolecular chemsitry. Parts of the project will be with in functionalizing biomolecules and a strong background in carbohydrate and/or peptide chemistry will be an advantage. Proficient communication skills and ability to work in teams as well as excellent English skills written and spoken are required.
The postdoc’s duties will include research within organic synthesis and biomolecular chemistry as well as teaching. The post may also include performance of other duties.
