Chemical synthesis allows for the incorporation of non-canonical building blocks, backbone modifications, and functional handles, but also requires highly efficient transformations to ensure successful incorporation of every single building block. The Hartrampf group addresses these challenges by using flow-based synthesis methods.
The Postdoc project focusses on reaction development for solid phase synthesis. The project will also include the design/modification of a flow chemistry set up, and the screening and optimization of synthesis conditions.
We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Postdoc to join our young and dynamic research group. The candidate must hold an excellent PhD in chemistry, chemical engineering, or related field, and must be fluent in oral and written English. A strong background in synthetic organic chemistry, as well as experience with solid phase synthesis, flow chemistry and/or programming (Python & LabView) is a plus.
We offer an exciting position in a stimulating and challenging environment, and the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art SPS technology, flow chemistry equipment, and new instrumentation for purification and analysis.
