Post-doc Position in Organic Chemistry: CO2 conversion

A 2-year post-doctoral fellowship position is now open within the CHOCO research group at UiT.

Field of research:

“The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will employ experimental organic chemistry methods to investigate organic and organometallic molecules that can bind and activate CO2. The project goal will be to design enantioselective carboxylation reactions and to obtain an in-depth mechanistic understanding of these. The work will be performed in collaboration with computational chemists in the team. The postdoc will be located at the Dept. of Chemistry and will become a member of an enthusiastic interdisciplinary research team, which combines theoretical and organic chemistry tools in the development of novel catalysts (group website:

The candidate can expect to be involved in the supervision of Master and PhD students in the group and may participate in teaching at the Department of Chemistry in an amount equivalent to a maximum 10% of a full-time employment.”
