The Hilt Research Group which is a member of the Research Training Group (RTG) Aktivierung chemischer Bindungen / Chemical Bond Activation (GRK 2226), funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), invites applications for
1 PhD position (f/m/d)
(salary E 13 TV-L, 67 %, for three years starting July 1, 2021).
Candidates are required to have a scientific university degree (Master of Science or Diploma) in chemistry or closely related fields and research experiences in the field of organic electrochemistry, electroanalytical chemistry or organic synthesis. The willingness to work on an interdisciplinary PhD project and good English language skills are expected.
The scientific aim of the RTG is the development of new methods for the selective activation of less reactive C-H bonds and the significant improvement of existing methods with regard to efficiency, selectivity, scope and robustness. This will be achieved by interdisciplinary research projects which focus on a number of selected important C-H bond activation reactions. Participating research groups and details about the RTG can be found on the website of the RTG (http://www.uni-oldenburg.de/chemie/graduiertenkolleg-2226 or https://uol.de/en/grk-2226).
The University of Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of female employees in the field of science. Therefore, female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. According to § 21, 3 NHG female applicants are to be preferably considered in case of equal qualification.
Applicants with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualification.
Applications (including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and copies of certificates and diploma supplements) should be mailed to Prof. Dr. Gerhard Hilt, Universität of Oldenburg, Institut für Chemie, D-26111 Oldenburg, Germany or submitted electronically (, one PDF-file) to arrive no later than April 15, 2021.
