If you are interested in a PhD, master’s or bachelor’s thesis in my group, please contact me via email ( or just come to my office.

There is an open PhD position starting in January 2019. More information can be found here:

The doctoral (Ph.D.) position is available as of 01.01.2019 in the group of Prof. Inke Siewert at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry within the Graduate School „BENCh- Benchmark Experiments for Numerical Quantum Chemistry“. The Siewert group focuses on electrochemistry, redox catalysis and small molecule activation using coordination compounds. In the proposed project, the student synthesizes and characterizes new coordination compounds with proton responsive ligands and determines their thermodynamic data for benchmarking. Ideally, the candidate has a strong background in synthetic physical-inorganic chemistry and is willing to learn high-level theory in collaboration with the project partners. Previous experience in the synthesis of organic and coordination compound using Schlenk-techniques is mandatory, first experience in electrochemistry and are beneficial. Please refer to “Bench Project C” in the application and combine all attachments in one pdf document (curriculum vitae with a publications list, motivation letter (max. 500 words), certificates of studies, certificates of language proficiency if non-native speaker of english (e.g., TOEFL) and two references).

There are currently no vacancies for Post-Docs.
