About the Project

Department of Chemistry and RECETOX invite talented, highly motivated, young scientist to apply for the Ph.D. position in Organic Photochemistry to work in the group of Prof. Petr Klán. More information about the laboratory and group on

Topic: Photoactivatable Small Molecule-Releasable Compounds for Medical Applications.

The prospective student will use organic synthetic and physico-chemical tools to synthesize and study small-molecule releasing photoactivatable compounds. The initial aim will be to develop novel photochemically active carbon monoxide-releasing species for biological and medical applications. The (photo)reaction mechanisms will (can) be investigated using state-of-the-art techniques, such as nanosecond laser flash spectroscopy.

Required expertise: Organic synthesis; physical organic chemistry; standard analytical methods (NMR, GC, HPLC); spectroscopy; and favorably photochemistry

Discussion about the research topic with supervisor is mandatory before the formal application – contact directly Prof. Petr Klán at [Email Address Removed], phone: +420-54949-4856
