Ph.D. Student position

60 %

Prof. Dr. Ilija Čorić's research group is looking for a Ph.D. Student candidate. The group performs research in two directions:

  • spatial anion control for mild and site-selective C–H activation (see J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2020 , 142 , 19040. and Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2022 , 61, e202205470.)
  • directional ionic bonds for supramolecular and materials chemistry (see J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2023 , doi: 10.1021/jacs.3c01030.)
  • Your responsibilities

    We are looking for candidates who would be interested in either of these topics. Depending on the selected focus, the PhD Student will be given an opportunity to gain experience in the design of catalysts and ligands, multistep organic synthesis, coordination chemistry (including synthesis of highly sensitive molecules), transition metal catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, and the chemistry of organic materials.

    Your profile

    Candidates must hold a Bachelor/Master in organic or inorganic chemistry and possess a good knowledge of English language.

    What we offer
  • opportunity to work in different areas of chemistry as listed above
  • training in the experimental techniques by Prof. Čorić
  • new labs and a new chemistry building offer excellent infrastructure and equipment
  • highly international environment
  • teaching experience by supervising BSc students in practical lab courses
  • supervision of BSc and MSc theses
  • additional opportunities to gain experience in computational chemistry (see the publications listed above)
  • Place of work

    University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, Zürich, Switzerland

    Start of employment

    Employment starts on 1st September 2023. Applications must include a cover letter, CV, research summary, transcripts of grades, and contact details of referees (all in pdf format).
