THE DIRECTOR OF THE INSTITUTE ANNOUNCES AN OPEN COMPETITION FOR THE POST OF ASSISTANT PROFESSOR (R2) IN THE 9 TEAM ” Coordination metal complexes and functional materials”, 62/2021
We are looking for a candidate with extensive experience in the molecular and crystal structure characterization of metal complexes using single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The selected person will be employed as an assistant professor and involved in in the research topics of the Team 9. In particular, the research topics will include: (i) characterization of the molecular and supramolecular structure of metal complexes based on X-ray techniques; ii) analysis of electronic and steric factors determining the molecular structure of metal complexes based on the experimental results obtained as well as with the use of available crystallographic databases, and iii) the study of dynamic phenomena in molecular crystals. An integral part of the research will be the design of organometallic complexes as model systems for the activation of small molecules or precursors of functional materials, and the preparation of structurally and morphologically designed crystalline inorganic-organic materials. The employed scientist will cooperate with other experienced researchers in the team and will supervise students.
