A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Chemistry at Kansas State University. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry at the time of appointment. This position will require the synthesis/characterization of organometallic complexes, as well as the quantitative evaluation of catalytic reactions using spectroscopic and chromatographic methods. Duties would include planning and conducting synthetic procedures, as well as writing and editing manuscripts/articles.
The position requires the individual to display critical thinking and independent judgment as it relates to ongoing and new research in the field, with guidance from the Primary Investigator. Candidates must have considerable experience synthesizing air-/moisture-sensitive transition metal complexes. Previous experience in organometallic synthesis and kinetic investigations of catalytic systems is preferred. This is an opportunity to join a growing research team and explore exciting new projects in the field of olefin metathesis.
Here is the full ad. Deadline to apply is January 1, 2021. Best wishes to those interested.
