We are looking for candidates with a strong background in organic chemistry and a willingness to apply it in the other fields of chemistry. The position is open in Functional Inorganic Materials Group (KovalenkoLab, ETH Zurich). The research activities in FIMG are focused on challenges related to the chemistry, physics, and applications of inorganic materials ranging from nanostructures to powders, thin films, and single crystals. Central to our efforts is the synthesis of inorganic materials and their integration or self-assembly into multifunctional solid-state structures. Synthetic work and thorough materials characterization are the cornerstones of our research.
This project will attempt to drive a series of challenging organic coupling reactions by photocatalysis with colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals, such as those made of lead halide perovskites. We will study the mechanism of these reactions in the presence of a photocatalyst and realize the optimal composition and surface chemistry of the photocatalyst.
The research activities will involve:
The preferred start is in the fall of 2020 or upon agreement.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents:
