The Stahl research group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is exploring a number of topics in the field of catalysis. Advances in catalysis research are crucial to address many of the major challenges facing our nation and world, including (i) reducing the contribution of human activities to global warming, (ii) identifying sustainable energy sources and (iii) minimizing the environmental impact of chemical synthesis (i.e., green chemistry). Research themes include aerobic oxidation reactions, C–H oxidation methods for pharmaceutical synthesis, electrochemical organic synthesis, biomass valorization, and electrocatalysis and electrochemical methods for energy conversion.
The Stahl research group is currently looking for several post-docs to support our lignin and plastic projects. Information on these positions can be seen here. Interested parties should send their CV, cover letter, and references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
