The PhD fellow will work on an interdisciplinary research project in catalysis and enzymology within the Catalysis section of the Department of Chemistry at UiO. The research is a joint project in collaboration with the Faculty of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science at NMBU.

The focus of the project is the synthesis of new and functionalized metal organic frameworks with active centers for i) methane activation, ii) electron transfer and iii) oxygen transfer. The planned research is of experimental nature and will require skills in synthesis of both inorganic and organic compounds, and especially work under inert atmosphere conditions. Multinuclear NMR spectroscopy and/or X-ray diffraction methods are central for structural identification of the synthetized materials.
