JUNIOR Fund (Post-Doc): Cooperative chalcogen bonding catalysis

Ref. No. UkFaF/353496/2023

Project Title:  Cooperative chalcogen bonding catalysis                       


Chalcogen atoms can act as electrophilic or nucleophilic species based on their nature and substitution. Precise consideration of these characteristics allows for designing an on-goal targeted class of chiral organocatalysts. This project should focus on designing a cooperative type of organocatalysis that combines electrophilic and nucleophilic activation patterns within of novel organocatalyst developed in our laboratory.

Requirements for applicant:

  • completed doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in the field of organic chemistry (experience with organocatalysis is advantageous),
  • experience in the field of organic chemistry, especially in methodology development or total synthesis,
  • active English skills (proficiency in spoken and written English),
  • prerequisites for research work (patience, persistence, and passion towards long-term goals in research),
  • flexibility, great diligence, thoroughness, and responsibility,
  • good organizational and communication skills,
  • ability to work both independently and in a team,
  • high motivation and hardworking,
  • strong willingness to learn new things continuously.

Salary: Co-funding is ensured and dependent on the candidate's proficiency/experience
