About the Project

The Max Planck Research Group of Synergistic Organometallic Catalysis at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion in Mülheim an der Ruhr in cooperation with the Ruhr University Bochum, is currently looking for a highly motivated Doctoral Candidate (m/f/div) in the Field of Synthetic Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis

The position is to be filled as soon as possible for the duration of three years.

This Ph.D. project aims to design and develop transition-metal based catalytic systems capable of using green energy as a promotor to activate small molecules relevant in energy research for the efficient and sustainable formation of C–C, C–N, C–O bonds. This project aims to push the boundaries of catalysis and develop precise molecular control over bond-making and -breaking processes.

Qualifications and personal qualities:

  • Applicants must hold a master’s degree in molecular chemistry or a related subject
  • Candidates must show a solid background in organometallic chemistry, with an emphasis on synthetic aspect.
  • Experience in the handling of air-sensitive and thermally labile organometallic compounds is desired
  • Experience with standard structural characterization techniques such as NMR, X-ray diffractometry, and mass spectrometry is required
  • Experience with IR, UV-vis spectroscopy, GC, GC-MS, photochemistry is an advantage
  • Excellent English-language proficiency (verbal and written)
  • Self-motivated personality with an independent, target-oriented, and systematic working style; a high degree of creativity, as well as excellent collaborative skills

Our offer:

The successful candidate will be integrated into an interdisciplinary and international group jointly between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion and the Ruhr University Bochum. The salary is in accordance with the funding guidelines of the Max Planck Society for junior scientists. The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Please send your application documents in a single PDF document, (including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, copies of your degree certificates, and contact information of two references) by e-mail, with the reference code “CW023” on or before November 15, 2022 to:
