NMR Postdoctoral Position

PostDoc Position (m/f/d) (Postdoctoral Scientist) in NMR spectroscopy
in Photocatalysis
Within the framework of the Collaborative Research Centre "Assembly Controlled Chemical
Photocatalysis" Prof. R. M. Gschwind offers a postdoc position to be filled at the University of
Regensburg, Germany, as soon as possible.
Chemical photocatalysis dramatically changed the way organic synthesis is done. In addition,
NMR-spectroscopy is a unique tool to get insights into the interactions between the substrate
and the catalytically active species before and after light excitation. The Gschwind group is
leading in the development and application of NMR tools and methods for chemical
photocatalysis. Within the CRC “Assembly Controlled Chemical Photocatalysis”, which is a
research cluster in photocatalysis consisting of 16 working groups, a postdoc position is
available in the Gschwind group for the further development of NMR methods in
photocatalysis. The special goal is to develop an ultrasensitive NMR tool for the detection and
structural characterization of electron donor acceptor complexes in photocatalysis. Further
goals are the detection, analysis and modulation of electron transfer processes and their
impact in photocatalysis. The CRC 325 offers an excellent interdisciplinary research
environment. Information about the individual research projects of the CRC 325 can be found
at https://crc325.de/
