The Anderson Laboratory is a synthetic inorganic chemistry group located at the University of Chicago. Our research involves the synthesis, characterization, and applications of new transition metal-based molecules and materials. We are particularly interested in understanding and modeling the mechanism of important catalytic processes such as water splitting and C-H activation as well as in developing new and tunable coordination polymer-based materials for novel magnetoelectronic applications and energy storage. More information can be found at our website: https://andersonlab.uchicago.edu/ .
Postdoctoral candidates should have extensive experience with synthetic chemistry, particularly with air-free Schlenk and glove box techniques as well as standard characterization techniques such as NMR, IR, UV-vis, and XRD. Additional background in materials chemistry, coordination polymers, and bioinorganic chemistry or techniques such as EPR, XAS, electrochemistry, and magnetism are particularly encouraged.
Interested and qualified applicants should send 1) a CV with a list of publications and 2) a summary of previous and current research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please have three references available upon request.
