A three-year (5+3) PhD position in organic and supramolecular chemistry is available for a highly motivated applicant at the Department of Physics, Chemistry, and Pharmacy at the University of Southern Denmark. The position is financed through a DFF-Research Project 1 from the Independent Research Fund Denmark – Technology and Production Sciences and is available from 1 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Application deadline: 1 August 2019.
The project will deal with the synthesis and characterization of macrocyclic sensor molecules capable of detecting explosives. A major part of the project will focus on attaching the sensor molecules onto different surfaces together with characterization of the modified surfaces using different surface techniques, such as surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry.
The ideal candidate holds a Master's degree (5+3) in organic or supramolecular chemistry. The candidate should have knowledge in supramolecular chemistry and surface characterization. Experience in synthetic organic chemistry is a prerequisite.
For further information contact Professor Jan O. Jeppesen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Assistant Professor Steffen Bähring (email@example.com).
Application, salary etc.
Appointment as a PhD Research Fellow is for three years. Employment stops automatically at the end of the period. The holder of the scholarship is not allowed to have other paid employment during the three-year period.
