A 1-year post-doctoral fellowship in homogeneous asymmetric metal catalysis under the supervision of Assistant Professor Søren Kramer is available at the Technical University of Denmark. The project is funded by the Villum Experiment program, and it will be performed in the Organic and Inorganic Chemistry Section at DTU Chemistry.

The position is available from January 1, 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Research in the Kramer group is focused on transition-metal catalysis, asymmetric catalysis, C-H functionalization, and reaction mechanism elucidation. The research group is young and highly ambitious.

Responsibilities and tasks
We are seeking a very motivated and ambitious candidate for a project within the field of transition-metal-catalyzed asymmetric C-H functionalization. The focus will be on methodology development of novel reactions within this field. The work will include organic synthesis of starting materials and reagents, development and optimization of novel reactions, as well as substrate scope investigation including isolation and characterization of products.

The candidate is expected to participate in supervision of junior students. Acquisition of teaching experience is supported.

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. Additional post-doctoral experience is an advantage. A strong background in homogeneous catalysis is required. Extensive experience with organic synthesis is essential. Previous experience with transition-metal catalysis, methodology development, and/or asymmetric catalysis are significant advantages.

The candidate must be able to work independently, but also participate in collaborations. Good communication skills in written and spoken English are required.

Most importantly, the applicant should strive toward scientific excellence, be highly motivated, ambitious, and hard-working. Only applicants who seek to be among the brightest in their field and conduct science at the highest international level will be considered.

In the assessment of candidates, consideration will be given to:

  • research potential at the highest international level
  • scientific production
  • an all-round scientific experience basis, preferably including international experience
  • ability to generate new ideas
  • motivation and ambitions

We offer
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.
