PhD Scholarship in Organometallic Catalysis for Sustainability

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark has an opening PhD position in inorganic chemistry. The funds for this position are available for 3 years. The deadline for applying is January 18, 2019.

A 3-year PhD scholarship in synthetic inorganic chemistry is available at the Department of Chemistry, starting from May 1st, 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter. The project will be supervised by Assistant Professor Martin Nielsen and is funded by the VILLUM Foundation Young Investigator Programme. The successful candidate will join a young and ambitious, international research team, which is a part of the Organic and Inorganic Chemistry section at DTU Chemistry.

The research in the Nielsen group is focused on designing and synthesizing inorganic coordination complexes, for homogeneous organometallic catalysis in the broad field of sustainable chemistry.

You will be involved in all facets of the research towards developing new and efficient organometallic catalysts, for bio feedstock valorisation andchemical hydrogen storage applications.

In cooperation with Assistant Professor Martin Nielsen and his research group, your responsibilities and learning objectives will include e.

The successful candidate should have a Master's degree in chemistry with a focus on synthetic inorganic chemistry or organometallic catalysis. Experience working with spectroscopy (e.g. NMR, FT-IR, X-ray crystallography) and chromatography analysis (e.g. HPLC, GC-TCD, LC-MS) is an advantage.

The successful candidate should thrive in a highly ambitious research groupthat aims to establish new research fields, and thus is prepared to take greater scientific risks than the general trend is in academia.

The successful candidate should be highly motivated,eager to seek and share knowledge,able to work independently in a dynamic group environment, and should be confident in both written and spoken English.

The applicant should strive towards scientific excellence, be ambitious and hard working. Only applicants who seek to be among the very brightest in their field and do science at the highest international level will be considered.

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years.
