Topic description

We are recruiting motivated candidates in the areas of organic synthesis of heteroatom-doped polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, peptide chemistry, self-assembled artificial light-harvesting systems, chalcogen-bonding driven molecular recognition systems, and stochastic self-assembly to build functional architectures for applications in devices, materials science and biology. The details of the project will be discussed individually.

Presentation of host institution and host laboratory

University of Vienna

Several PhD positions are available in the laboratory of Prof. Davide Bonifazi at the University of Vienna, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Austria. The Bonifazi's group is specialized in the creation of functional molecular architectures characterized by ambitious targeted organic synthesis, self-assembly and self-organization of functional architectures through novel dynamic covalent and non-covalent bonds, physical-organic studies (selected references: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2015, 54, 15739; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2015, 54, 6163; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2016, 55, 5947; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2017, 56, 4483-4487; J. Am. Chem.

Candidate's profile

Applicants must hold a 1st Class Honours degree (or equivalent) in Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry by the time of the appointment. Only candidates with an MSc (or equivalent) will be considered. One year of experience in research in the field of transition metal-catalyzed transformation, organic synthesis of peptides and/or aromatic heterocycles will be an added value. Very good spoken and written English is also mandatory (IELTS score = 6.5).
