Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.
Department of Chemistry - Ångström Laboratory conducts research and education in chemistry. The Department has over 300 active persons, of which 200 are employees and the rest consists of guest researchers and students doing research at Master level. Annual turnover is just over 200 million SEK. For more information, visit the Chemistry Ångström's website.The research at the Department spans from materials chemistry to physical chemistry, and from biochemistry to molecular biology. Strong cross-disciplinary collaborations are characteristic for the Department. For more information, see: www.kemi.uu.se.
The Molecular Inorganic Chemistry group is part of the Department of Chemistry, Ångström Laboratories, within the Chemistry section at Uppsala University. For more information see please press here. The Orthaber group is situated in a modern building at the Ångström Laboratory.
Duties: The position is situated in the area of synthetic chemistry and structural analysis of metal clusters, especially coinage metals, and other coordination compounds using group 15 based ligands and/or acetylenic ligands. The applicant is expected to conduct cutting edge research towards the above goals. Strong collaborations within the Department of Chemistry allow an interdisciplinary character of this project.
All projects involve the synthesis and characterization (UV/vis, NMR spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction studies). Further functional studies of the synthesized compounds by advanced spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques are performed by the candidate and in collaboration with other groups at UU, in Sweden and abroad.
Requirements: The applicant must hold a PhD in Chemistry or related areas. Documented experience in supramolecular chemistry, cluster chemistry and areas related to the project are important (see description of duties and the project); documented experience in X-ray crystallography (single crystal) is essential. Good language skills in English (written and spoken) are important.
Additional qualifications: Experience in advanced spectroscopic techniques and the ability to work in interdisciplinary teams is a benefit. Previous experience with molecular main group chemistry is also beneficial, but not a requirement.
Uppsala University strives to be an inclusive workplace that promotes equal opportunities and attracts qualified candidates who can contribute to the University’s excellence and diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and from people of all backgrounds.
