The Research Training Group (RTG) Aktivierung chemischer Bindungen/Chemical Bond Activation (GRK 2226), funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), invites applications for
12 PhD positions
(salary E 13 TV-L, 67 %, limited to three years starting October 1, 2017).
Candidates (m/f) are required to have a university degree (Master of Science or Diploma) in chemistry or closely related fields. The willingness to work on an interdisciplinary PhD project and good English language skills are expected.
The scientific aim of the RTG is the development of new methods for the selective activation of less reactive C-H bonds and the significant improvement of existing methods with regard to efficiency, selectivity, scope and robustness. This will be achieved by interdisciplinary research projects which focus on a number of selected important C-H bond activation reactions. Participating research groups and details about single projects can be found on the website of the RTG (http://www.uni-oldenburg.de/chemie/graduiertenkolleg-2226). Please indicate up to three projects in your application and rank them according to your personal preference.
The Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg is an equal opportunity employer aiming to increase the proportion of female academic staff members. Therefore, we especially encourage women to apply. If equally qualified candidates apply, preference will be given to those with special needs.
Applications (including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and copies of certificates and diploma supplements) should be mailed to the speaker of the RTG Aktivierung chemischer Bindungen/Chemical Bond Activation, Prof. Dr. Sven Doye, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Institut für Chemie, D-26111 Oldenburg, Germany, or submitted electronically (firstname.lastname@example.org, one PDF file) to arrive no later than August 9, 2017.
