The aim of the project funded by an ERC grant is using microfluidic environments mimicking bio-inspired conditions (controlled reaction and diffusion of reagents) to control non-covalent synthesis: going from thermodynamic products to non-equilibrium states (kinetically trapped, metastable, or dissipative states).
The ideal candidate has a master degree in Chemistry, Materials Science or in a related area, with skills and expertise in organic synthesis and supramolecular chemistry (and/or physical organic chemistry), along with knowledge of basic spectroscopy (UV-Vis, CD, Fluorescence). We wish to recruit a highly motivated, enthusiastic and creative candidate.
Applications from motivated MSc. students are always welcome. Please, contact us by email.
We will be happy to discuss with you about our research projects and your scientific interest.
