Chemistry and Biochemistry

Prof. Dr. Lukas Gooßen (Ruhr Universität Bochum)

Evonic Chair of Organic Chemistry

 

Research Area

The research in the Gooßen group is devoted to the development of sustainable transition metal-catalyzed reactions as alternatives to waste-intensive multi-step transformations.

Primary research goals are

- inventing new chemical reactions based on mechanistic considerations
- devising concepts for the selective functionalization of C-C and C-H bonds
- enabling the use of alternative substrates that have inherent advantages with regard to the reduction of salt waste, e.g. carboxylic acids, alcohols, amines
- developing reagents and reactions for late stage fluoroalkylations
- implementig new concepts for the valorization of renewables and of CO2
- gaining an in-depth mechanistic understanding of catalytic reactions with a focus on solvent effects

Candidate Profile

If you …

- love chemistry as much as we do
- want to do exciting and challenging research at a top international level
- are a skillful chemist full of new ideas
- have good knowledge of English
- are not afraid of computers and laboratory automation
- have a solid understanding of organometallic chemistry
- and feel the desire to go beyond the paved paths of synthesis and catalysis
... you might be just the right person for us.

Qualifications: PhD in Chemistry; good grades and publication record proving chemical understanding and creativity

Mathematics

Prof. Dr. Deniz Kus (Ruhr-Universität Bochum)

Mathematics

Algebra and Geometry

Research Area

My research interests are all sort of representation theory and algebraic combinatorics. I have strong side interests in the interaction between representation theory, number theory, basic hypergeometric series, geometry and combinatorics. Our group is currently focussed on classifying the regular subalgebras of extended affine Lie algebras of nullity 2 and the candidate should be involved in ongoing projects.

Candidate Profile

We are looking forward to host a motivated and independently working scientist, who is interested in the field of representation theory and holds a master degree in mathematics; favourably close to completing a doctoral degree. Knowledge in algebraic Lie theory or algebraic geometry would be an additional advantage.

Physics

Prof. Dr. Michael Farle (University of Duisburg-Essen)

Experimental Physik

AG Farle

Research Area

The group “Structure and Magnetism of Nanoscaled systems” at the University of Duisburg-Essen investigates magnetic nanostructures , low-dimensional spin-hybrid systems and recently also bulk magnets. The interests focus on the understanding of the correlation of morphology, crystal structure and magnetism.

Candidate Profile

Expertise in materials science
Experience in XRD and TEM , materials synthesis and/or magnetic materials
