Ph.D. Student Position in the Organic Photochemistry
Deadline 10 Nov 2018
Start date upon agreement
Department of Chemistry and RECETOX invite talented, highly motivated, young scientist to apply for the Ph.D. position in Organic Photochemistry to work in the group of Prof. Petr Klán. More information about the laboratory and group on http://photochem.sci.muni.cz.
Topic: Photoactivatable Small Molecule-Releasing Compounds and Sensors for Medical Applications.
The prospective student will use organic synthetic and physico-chemical tools to synthesize and study small-molecule releasing photoactivatable compounds. The initial aim will be to develop novel photochemically active carbon monoxide-releasing species for biological and medical applications. The (photo)reaction mechanisms will (can) be investigated using state-of-the-art techniques, such as nanosecond laser flash spectroscopy.
- 4-year Ph.D. programme with financial support for 4 years
- Interdisciplinary scientific topics
