Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Organic Chemistry at University of Oslo, Norway

In our research, the emphasis is on the design of chiral alpha-aminophosphonate derivatives to explore the scope of their catalytic reactivity in asymmetric chemical transformations, and subsequently their incorporation in more complex molecules. The establishment of this chemistry will allow generating phosphapeptides and phosphosphingosine analogues that possess interesting architectural features or useful biological activity. The work encompasses primarily experimental chemistry, characterisation, NMR investigations, and will be extended to theoretical studies. The candidate must have a PhD degree or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in organic chemistry. The main purpose of post-doctoral research fellowships is…
