The University of Tromsø - The Arctic University of Norway, Faculty of Science and Technology, has a PhD position vacant on a project involving development of catalysts for conversion of CO2. The appointment is for a period of four years.

Research area

The PhD research project involves the development of organometallic catalysts for chemical conversion of CO2 into useful and industrially relevant products. Particular focus is on the formation of carbon-carbon bonds employing CO2 as reagent. The PhD candidate will design and test new CO2 converting catalysts with different metals, ligands and additives. The candidate will gain experience into transition metal catalysis, organic synthesis, and ligand design and will work with analytical methods like NMR and MS. Part of the project may involve synthesis directed towards radiolabelling with 11CO2 together with our collaborators at the Tromsø PET center.
