2013 PhD Student Position in Physical Organic Chemistry at Uppsala University in Sweden

 The research project concerns design and synthesis of organosilicon compounds for potential applications in molecular electronics, i.e., the research area in which single molecules are designed to function as diodes, optical switches, transistors or other (new) electronic components. Focus will however be placed on questions of basic research character. A significant number of the compounds that will be designed and studied experimentally exploit novel conjugation topologies for charge transport, such as sigma-conjugation and cross-hyperconjugation. The research project is interdisciplinary in character as it involves both organic synthesis and quantum chemical calculations, and it is performed in collaborations with physicists and engineers.
