Sweden: PhD Position in Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


A new constellation in molecular electronics is being formed at
Uppsala University; the Uppsala University UniMolecular Electronics
Center (U3MEC) composed of eight different research groups and with
focus on molecular electronics based on single or small assemblies of
molecules. U3MEC comprises expertise in chemistry, physics and
engineering, experimentalists as well as theoreticians.

One PhD student
position in the group of Prof. Henrik Ottosson at the Department of
Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry is available. The project involves
design and synthesis of novel organosilicon, -germanium, and -tin
compounds, and characterization of their spectroscopic and
electrochemical properties as well as assembly into nanoelectronics
platforms for investigations of electron transport properties.

A suitable candidate has a master of science in chemistry or
equivalent, or expects to complete his/her degree before the end of the
year. He/she has (i) a solid experience in organic and/or
organometallic synthesis, (ii) documented good knowledge in physical
chemistry, and desirably (iii) documented interest in computational
chemistry and chemical bonding theory. Good skills in oral and written English are required, and an ability to work in a multidisciplinary and visionary environment is crucial.

The PhD student position corresponds to four years of full time studies, with courses of approximately 1 year, and 3 years of research work.

Complete applications should include (i) a brief yet comprehensive
description of research interest, past experience and future visions,
(ii) a CV, (iii) copies of exams, degrees and grades, (iv) a copy of
your Master thesis (or a draft thereof), and (v) contact information to
a minimum of two reference persons.

For further information please contact Prof. Henrik Ottosson, henrik.ottosson[ at ]biorg.uu.se

Important: Applications by email will not be considered.

Applications should be sent to: Prof. Henrik Ottosson, Department of
Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry, Box 576, Uppsala University, 751 23
Uppsala, Sweden.
