The Beyzavi Group in the Department of Chemistry/Biochemistry in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas is accepting applications for a highly motivated and hard-working Postdoctoral Fellow in Transition-Metal Based Catalytic Systems with the focus on utilizing Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs).
This project is interdisciplinary as we are interested to incorporate catalytically active metal complexes into COFs to address the current challenges in catalysis such as catalyst self-quenching or deactivation.
This position involves organic synthesis of ligands, preparation and characterizing of transition-metal based complexes, testing their properties, catalytic activities and reporting results to the Professor Beyzavi. The position requires mentoring of junior researchers, manuscript preparation and submission of proposals for further work.
This initial appointment will be for one year, with expectation for renewal.
Regular, reliable, and non-disruptive attendance is an essential job duty, as is the ability to create and maintain collegial, harmonious working relationships with others.Full ad here. Best wishes to those interested.
