The offered PhD position is in the research group of Jun.-Prof. Dr. Casitas at Philipps-Universität Marburg (Germany). The research interests of the group focus on the development of sustainable catalytic methods for organic synthesis and on the elucidation of reaction mechanisms involving mid- and late first-row transition metal catalysts. The specific PhD project involves the synthesis and characterization of novel high-valent organometallic iron and manganese complexes and the development of bond-forming reactions that proceed through these electrophilic compounds. In adddition, the development of catalytic reactions with iron and manganese complexes is envisioned.
