Job description: The current vacancy is part of the organic chemistry group. The project aims at the development and implementation of a novel approach to azide-enriched polymers. The synthesis, characterization and applications of polymeric structures is envisaged; energetic materials will be prepared.
Requirements: The applicant should have a strong background in organic or macromolecular chemistry. Candidates with prior experience in polymer synthesis will have a strong advantage. The level of experience and skill in NMR methods and mass spectroscopy will be accounted for as well. Good communication skills (both verbal and written) in English are a prerequisite. The candidate should be enthusiastic about research, capable of learning new skills, and happy working both independently and in collaboration with other scientists.
Research environment: The researcher will be embedded into an experimental group at the School of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and will work in close collaboration with Prof. Dr. Stefan F. Kirsch. The Bergische Universität Wuppertal strives to increase the proportion of women in science and research and therefore has a special interest in the application of women. Disabled applicants will be given preference if equally qualified.
Please address your application with the usual documents including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, and 1-page description of previous research experience no later than 30.09.2019 and stating your earliest possible starting date to Prof. Dr. Stefan F. Kirsch.
