PhD in Molecular Catalysis in Metal-organic Frameworks

Uppsala University, Sweden is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in civil engineering. Applications are invited up to January 31, 2020.

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. More information is available on our website.

Subject description/research project: The projects deal with the preparation of molecular catalysts (cats) of energy relevance, in particular for hydrogen production and CO2 reduction, and their incorporation into metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). The interior of the MOFs will be tailored to promote catalysis at high turnover rates and low overpotentials, and the performance of thereby produced MOFcats will be tested in electrochemical and photochemical set-ups.

Work duties:The proposed project comprises elements of organic synthesis, coordination chemistry, characterization of MOFcats by common organic as well as materials chemistry methods, surface chemistry, electrochemistry, photochemistry and spectroscopy. The project will partly be conducted in collaboration with partners at UU, in Sweden and abroad. Representative recent publications are: J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2018, 2985, Chem. Commun. 2018, 54, 7770 and J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2019, 15942.
