Join Us

Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. – Dylan Thomas


Applications to join our group are always extremely welcome from outstanding and enthusiastic master students, PhD and postdoctoral candidates. Our main activity is organic synthesis, but we also have a strong interest in supramolecular chemistry and molecular topography. All members of the group learn about a wide range of chemistry and techniques.

Interested? Unfortunately, we currently have no funded PhD/PostDoc positions available. As always, we have lab space for candidates that bring their own funding. Additional funded positions may become available next year. We have also lots of space for interested bachelor and master students, see here and here.

We would like to hear more about you by email, ideally with a cover letter, CV, research summary, and transcripts of grades. Please note: Only applications as a single Pdf are considered!

For us, only competencies count. Send us your application regardless of origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ideology or disability!

Our Facilities

We have state-of-the-art laboratories on the beautiful UZH campus. A large lab, spacious benches, desks with a view, a personal fume hood (and rotovap 😊) is as much included as access to top-end UZH spectroscopy facilities (NMR, MS etc), computational cluster, glove boxes, our own GC-MS and chemical storage room. We work closely with the other teams within the department and beyond for more elaborate experiments.

Our Location

We are located at the Campus Irchel of the University of Zurich (UZH), about 20 minutes away from both the airport Zurich-Kloten and the main railwaistation (SBB HB). The Irchel Campus is best reached by the tram station Milchbuck (tramline 10 from both airport and railway station).

You find us in building Y32, G floor, in the laboratories 76 and 78. Stop by and have a chat with us!
