Postdoctoral Research Position in Organic Chemistry, University of Stockholm, Sweden

Expires on: 01/31/2024



The Department of Organic Chemistry has an extensive research program, covering many areas of experimental and theoretical chemistry. Method development involving catalysis, sustainable chemistry, asymmetric synthesis, carbohydrate chemistry and enzyme chemistry are central themes.

A scholarship-funded postdoc position is offered in the group of Prof. B. Martín-Matute at Stockholm University. The candidate will work on the development, testing and evaluation of innovative catalytic processes to synthesize organic molecules with focus on renewable and recycled raw materials. We will apply the principles of green chemistry, with emphasis on prevention of waste, and on atom and energy efficiency. Martín-Matute group works on the development of new processes to make C-C and C-heteroatom bonds using a variety of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. The candidate should have a strong background on the development of catalytic processes, on the characterization of organic compounds and on materials characterization techniques (TEM, SEM, XRD). Experience on the use of non-conventional solvents for organic synthesis, electrocatalysis and/or mechanochemistry will be considered. The scholarship is funded by Stockholm University for a maximum of two years.
