A 3-year PhD fellowship in organic chemistry and homogeneous asymmetric metal catalysis under the supervision of Assistant Professor Søren Kramer is available at the Technical University of Denmark. The project will be performed in the Organic and Inorganic Chemistry Section at DTU Chemistry.

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

Research in the Kramer group is focused on organic chemistry, 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 looking for a very motivated and ambitious candidate for a project within the fields of organic chemistry and 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 organic reactions, as well as substrate scope investigation including isolation and characterization of products.

Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.

Candidates should have a degree in chemistry or chemical engineering and a strong background in experimental organic chemistry.

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 to conduct science at the highest international level will be considered.
