Are you our new colleague?

We are pleased to announce the opening of a 2-year postdoc position within the CHOCO group on the topic of “New Reactions for CO2 Activation”. We are looking to fill the position as soon as possible, so prepare to 

pack your bags and start your arctic adventure in the beautiful city of Tromsø!

Field of Research:
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow  will use quantum chemical methods (standard density

functional theory and ab initio molecular dynamics) to model molecules and reactions and to propose promising new molecules for activation of CO2, especially towards enantioselective carbon-carbon bond formation. The work will be performed in close collaboration with experimental organic chemists. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be located at the Dept. of Chemistry and will become a member of an enthusiastic interdisciplinary research team, which combines computational 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 in an amount equivalent to maximum 10 % of a full-time employment.
