PhD Position in Computational Catalysis

Open PhD Position in Computational Chemistry (Catalysis) at University of Tromsø

The CHOCO group has an open PhD position. The PhD fellow will investigate and design catalysts for organometallic reactions and CO2 conversion. The candidate will employ quantum chemical methods to study the properties and mechanisms of organometallic catalysts. The insights obtained will be used to develop novel catalysts, in close collaboration with experimental chemists working in-house.

Application deadline: 30th of Sdeptember, 2018. Apply HERE.

RCN report on interdisciplinary research

RCN on interdiciplinary research

The research council of Norway has published a report on interdiciplinary research in Norway. CHOCO leader Kathrin was interviewed, as well as our collaborators on the interdiciplinary iCCU project: Øyvind Stokke at the Institute for Philosophy and Hans Christian Eilertsen at the College of Fishery Sciences.

You can find the report here.
