Open positions

Postdoctoral Position – Synthesis of coordination compounds

Job position description

We are currently accepting applications from motivated post-doctoral researchers with previous experience in synthesis, who want to join the project led by Prof. Eliseo Ruiz and Dr Silvia Gómez.

The successful candidate will join the research group to work in the fields of molecular magnetism and molecular electronics. The candidate will be responsible for the synthesis, crystallization and characterization of coordination compounds with appealing magnetic and electronic properties.


A one-year postdoc position is available for a synthetic chemist to collaborate in a combined experimental and theoretical project on magnetic devices. The position is funded by the Maria de Maeztu Unit of Excellence grant awarded by the Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the Universitat de Barcelona.

More than 90 researchers mainly expert in computational chemistry integrate the IQTC. The research activity carried out covers methods and computational tools development, application of several techniques of electronic structure and simulation to problems in materials science, the study of reactivity and reaction dynamics in chemical reactions as well as of biological systems and soft-matter. Some of their projects, like this one, combines experimental and theoretical chemistry.


  • PhD in Chemistry
  • Previous experience in inorganic and organic synthesis, as well as, air-sensitive chemistry
