While experience in flow chemistry is a bonus, it is not a mandatory requirement.

Job Duties and Responsibilities: The successful candidate will:

  • Perform organic/electrochemical synthesis of compounds with varying complexity
  • Utilize common techniques for compound purification, such as column chromatography, distillation, crystallization, and others
  • Characterize compounds and analyze samples using appropriate instrumentation (NMR, HPLC, GC, MS, UV, IR, etc.)
  • Summarize and interpret data
  • Collaborate with Center scientists to support, refine, and further develop ongoing and emerging projects
  • Demonstrate a high level of scientific integrity
  • Adhere to established laboratory safety procedures
  • Conduct activities under the supervision of the Center’s faculty members

Job Requirements:

  • PhD in synthetic organic chemistry, electrochemistry, catalysis, or related field
  • In-depth knowledge of synthetic chemistry, product separation, and characterization
  • Demonstrated expertise in synthetic method development and product characterization
  • (Optional) Experience in setting up and utilizing systems in flow chemistry
  • Proficiency in data analysis/interpretation
  • Expertise in data management, documentation, and relevant software
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal/written), interpersonal skills, and problem-solving abilities
  • Self-motivated and able to work both collaboratively and independently
