PhD Scholarships in Supramolecular and Bioorganic Chemistry at Technical University of Denmark

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in sustainable development. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 3 years in Denmark. This position is closed on July 31, 2020.

Two 3-year PhD scholarships in supramolecular and bioorganic chemistry are available at the Technical University of Denmark. The projects will be supervised by Associate Professor Sophie Beeren and are funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation the Carlsberg Foundation. The successful candidates will join a young and ambitious, international research team, which is a part of the Organic and Inorganic Chemistry (Inorganic Chemistry scholarships) section at DTU Chemistry.

Research in the group is focused on supramolecular chemistry in water. We aim to understand how non-covalent interactions allow molecules interact, to recognise each other, to fold and assemble into larger, multi-component systems. We take inspiration from biological systems and exploit the tools of biochemistry (biochemistry scholarships) to build new and complex chemical architectures, dynamic systems, host-gest complexes and adaptive materials.

The PhD projects will explore the use of enzyme-catalysed reactions in templated dynamic covalent synthesis - combining supramolecular chemistry and enzymology to lay the foundations for a new biotechnological approach to oligosaccharide synthesis. This methodology will be used towards the synthesis of carbohydrate-based receptors and stimuli-responsive materials. The work will include the design, organic synthesis and characterisation of molecular building blocks and templates, enzymatic synthesis and analysis of dynamic oligosaccharide mixtures and physical studies using spectroscopy (spectroscopy scholarships) (NMR, UV-Vis, fluorescence and CD spectroscopy) to investigate conformation, binding phenomena and self-assembly. Active dissemination of the obtained results, in scientific articles and through participation in international conferences, is an integral part of the job.

The successful candidates should have a Master's degree or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree in chemistry with a focus on synthetic organic chemistry. Experience working with spectroscopy (NMR, UV-Vis, fluorescence, CD) and chromatography analysis (HPLC, LC-MS) is an advantage. Most importantly, the candidate should be highly motivated, able to work independently and should be very 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 amongst the brightest in their field and conduct science at the highest international level will be considered.

The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates 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 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.

Applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration. To apply, please open the link “Apply online”, fill out the online application form, and attach all your materials in English in one PDF file. The file must include:

Incomplete applications will not be considered. Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

DTU develops technology for people. With our international elite research and study programmes, we are helping to create a better world and to solve the global challenges formulated in the UN's 17 Sustainable Development (Sustainable Development scholarships) Goals. Hans Christian rsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today. DTU has 11,500 students and 6,000 employees. We work in an international atmosphere and have an inclusive, evolving, and informal working environment. Our main campus is in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen and we have campuses in Roskilde and Ballerup and in Sisimiut in Greenland.
