Open Positions

***NEW*** Postdoctoral Researcher in Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry:
We seek a highly motivated and dedicated Postdoctoral Researcher to take a leadership role in conducting innovative research for the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project "Highly Luminescent Multinuclear Coinage Metal Arrays with a Twist: A New Approach to Design Light-Emitting Molecular Strings and Coils" (Award # 2155153). The responsibilities for this position include the preparation and characterization of target organic compounds, highly air-sensitive organometallic species, and novel transition metal complexes. We offer a well-equipped laboratory, a recently upgraded infrastructure for NMR and emission spectroscopy, as well as a brand-new XRD facility. 
Applicants must hold a postgraduate degree at PhD level (or any other equivalent foreign degree) in inorganic/organometallic synthesis and spectroscopy. The ideal candidate also has substantial experience in X-ray crystallography or computational chemistry.
This position is available immediately, for initially 12 months, with the possibility of extension. Applications including a letter of motivation, detailed CV, and the contact information of at least two professional references should be submitted here (Job ID 246461).

For further information please contact Dr. Stollenz.

Other Postdoc Positions:
Applications for highly motivated postdoctoral researchers are welcome! Please send your application directly to Dr. Stollenz, including a cover letter, CV, and an outline of proposed funding opportunities.
We are looking for Master Students!
Proper training in our research lab (manipulation of air-sensitive compounds using Schlenk techniques, column chromatography, crystallization techniques, NMR, IR, UV-Vis, fluorescence spectroscopy) within at least 1 summer semester before joining the MSCB program is required.
***NEW*** Check out the new Double Owl track Chemistry BS / Chemical Sciences MS!
Please contact Dr. Stollenz for more information.
Research Opportunities for Undergraduates:
Minimum requirements: experience in organic chemistry and a high motivation for research
(minimum GPA: 3.5)
Undergraduate researchers are asked to stay at least for 2 semesters in the group, (including 1 summer semester). We encourage all undergraduate research students of our group to join the KSU MSCB program!
Registration for CHEM 4100 is possible (Junior level and beyond; 1 credit hour translates into 3 hours of laboratory work).
An end-of-the semester research report and participation in group meetings is required for each student.
Research Opportunities for Undergraduates/Graduate Students (Europe):
The Stollenz Group welcomes highly motivated research students of all levels from abroad!
Please contact Dr. Stollenz or Dr. Arras for more information.
