A 3 year PhD position insynthesis of fluorescent organic dyes
is available in 2017 in the NanoChemistry group, Department of Chemistry and Nano-Science Center, University of Copenhagen. The aim of the project is to develop synthetic protocols for new fluorescent dyes with applications inbioimaging
and asfluorescent sensors
. The starting date of the position is April 1st, 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Area of Research
The project aims at developing synthetic procedures for new fluorescent dyes with potential applications in advanced bioimaging and as fluorescent sensors. The project will mainly focus on cationic chromophores, in particular derivatives of triangulenium dyes. The PhD candidate will primarily work with organic synthesis and in collaboration with other members of the research group be involved in fluorescence spectroscopy of the developed dyes.
The preferred candidate should have a Master degree in chemistry or related fields.
The candidate must have strong background in synthetic organic chemistry. Candidates with experience in: synthesis of organic fluorescent dyes and/or fluorescence spectroscopy/microscopy are preferred.
Further requirements are fluency in written and spoken English.
If you finish your Master degree between the deadline for applications and April 1, 2017, you should confirm this by attaching a written statement from by your supervisor.
The successful applicant will enrol as a Ph.D. student at the University of Copenhagen. The Ph.D. program, in addition to the project work, comprises participation in courses and some activity as teaching assistant.
Terms of employment
The position is for a three-year period and expected to lead to a Ph.D. degree at the University of Copenhagen.
Salary, pension and terms of employment are in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Academics Central organization. The salary depends on seniority, as agreed between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations.
