PhD in Chemistry with Specialization in Synthetic Molecular Chemistry

Uppsala University, Sweden has an opening PhD position in civil engineering. The deadline to apply is January 19, 2019.

The Department of Chemistry – ngstrm conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 200 employees and has a turnover of 200 million SEK. At the department’s six programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs.

Project description

The projects deal with the preparation of luminescent lanthanide complexes and bimodal imaging agents. The project has organic and coordination chemistry aspects; the systems will be characterized using traditional organic as well as electrochemical, photochemical and spectroscopic methods. The complexes will also undergo biological testing. The project will in part be conducted in collaboration with partners at Stockholm University. Representative recent publications are: J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, 139, 5756 and Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2015, 54, 1787.


A suitable background is a Master of Science (MSc) degree (or Swedish "Magister" or "Civilingenjr") in Chemistry, with solid experience in synthetic molecular inorganic and/or organic chemistry, organometallic and coordination chemistry, and an interest in physical chemistry and/or biochemistry. The ability of the PhD student to be innovative and not afraid to go outside the traditional discipline boundaries is appreciated. Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
