Department of Chemistry Faculty of Science
University of Copenhagen
The assistant professor will develop new DNA-stabilized silver nanoclusters with unique photophysical properties that can find applications in bio- imaging. Such properties include among others absorption and emission features in the NIR-II region, upconversion fluorescence, optically activated delayed fluorescence or microsecond lived emission.
The assistant professor's duties will primarily include research, including obligations with regard to publication/scientific communication and research- based teaching with associated examination obligations within chemistry. To a limited extent this may also include performance of other duties.
Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, internationally competitive research. The ability to attract external funding will be considered together with outreach qualifications. Teaching qualifications are not mandatory but documented teaching qualifications and teaching experience will be considered.
