The Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Suero research group.

This position will be funded by the European Research Council ERC project CARBYNE (865554).

Description of the project : The art of organic synthesis and reaction discovery relies on logic-guided thought processes that often involve hypovalent carbon reactive species and their corresponding stabilized equivalent forms.

However, not all of the possible carbon reactive intermediates and their reactivity rules have attracted the same attention by the synthetic community.

This is mainly because of the perception of the lack of synthetic utility and importantly, because of the challenges associated with controlling its extreme reactivity and lack of efficient sources.

The main goal of this project is to invent and develop new chemical reactions based on equivalents of carbyne species the monovalent carbon species , able to transform feedstock & fine chemicals into complex organic matter.

Our initial works on carbyne equivalent generation and metal-carbynoids were recently published (Nature 2018, 554, 86; JACS, 2019, 141, 15509)

We are looking for a self-motivated, creative and independent individual that fulfill the following requirements :

  • PhD in Organic chemistry or related field.
  • Proven track record in discovery and development of novel catalytic concepts.
  • Experiences in photochemistry, photocatalysis, metal-catalyzed C H bond functionalization, radical chemistry or asymmetric catalysis.
  • Proven good level of written and spoken English.
  • Strong commitment for scientific excellence.
  • Responsibilities

  • Discovery and development of new chemical reactions based on equivalents of carbyne species.
  • Writing reports, preparation of scientific articles, and presentation of results in group meetings and conferences.
  • Maintenance of laboratory equipment.
  • Complete documentation of research results.
  • Offer Requirements

  • REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVEL Chemistry : PhD or equivalent
  • Reportar esta oferta
