We invite applications for a PhD position to work in the group of Prof. Vladimir Sindelar at Masaryk University, Czech Republic. The main role of this position is concerned with the synthesis of bambusuril receptors and the investigation of their properties. The successful candidate will use isothermal titration calorimetry and other techniques to determine association constants and thermodynamic parameters of complexes between bambusuril macrocycles and anions in water and organic solvents. The work should reveal new insight into supramolecular properties of this family of macrocycles developed in our group. 
The candidates are encouraged to have experience in above-mentioned area. The main research topic of dissertation project is: 

  • Determination and evaluation of anion binding by bambusuril macrocycle in different solvents 


  • Complete MA / Mgr. / MSc. Degree in Physical chemistry or related field 
  • Background in host-guest chemistry and synthetic organic chemistry is preferred 


  • International multidisciplinary team engagement in highly ambitious projects of supramolecular chemistry 
  • Work in an inspiring and highly collaborative environment 
  • Various opportunities for further education, training and professional growth 


The candidates are invited to send their: 

  • CV (including contact details, nationality and current address, education, etc.)
