Functieomschrijving

The project aims to develop new approaches for the investigation of reaction mechanisms. You will learn and later improve our strategies to trap and characterise reaction intermediates in organometallic reactions by mass spectrometry. In addition, you will investigate the reactions by NMR spectroscopy, GC chromatography and by UV-vis spectrometry. You will focus on homogeneous nickel-catalysed reactions involving activation of small molecules such as CO2. The project will run within the framework of the NWO start-up grant awarded to Prof. Roithova. For relevant literature, see: Acc. Chem. Res. 2016, 49, 223; J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, 139, 2757; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2019, https://doi.org/10.1002/anie.201906293.

Functie-eisen

  • Master’s degree in chemistry (good knowledge of organic and physical chemistry).
  • Curiosity to explore new reactions and new approaches in chemistry.
  • Ability to work in a multidisciplinary environment.
  • Good communication skills in English.

Conditions

  • Employment: 40 hours per week.
  • The gross starting salary amounts to €2,325 per month, and will increase to €2,972 in the fourth year (P scale).
