PhD with Timo Repo in Helsinki

 Helsinki University invites applications for a PhD position for four years in homogeneous catalysis 

The PhD project is aimed to develop new catalytic methods for the creation of carbon–carbon bonds using carbon dioxide as the reagent. In the course of the project, you will develop novel metal and metal-free catalysts and study their reactivity. Your work will involve organic and inorganic synthesis, purification and characterization of precursors and evaluation of the catalytic reactivity. You are expected to present your findings in scientific meetings and workshops, prepare funding applications for travel and research grants, as well as prepare manuscripts for publication in international scientific journals.

For more details, contact Prof. Timo Repo (, and see the home page of his research group.
