CV Matthias Vogt, PhD

Short Researcher Biography:


Matthias obtained his 1st and 2nd degree in chemistry from the TU Berlin, Germany  (2000-2006). In 2003 he went abroad to join Prof. D.M. Heinekey at the University of Washington and worked on non-classical hydrogen complexes of iridium. In 2006 Matthias moved for his PhD studies to the ETH Zurich working with Prof. H. Gruetzmacher on olefins as steering ligands for 1st row transition metal complexes. His PhD thesis was awarded with the ETH medal. Starting from 2011 until 2014 he joined the Milstein group at the Weizmann Institute Science in Rehovot, Israel as a postdoc focusing on the activation of multiple bonds (C-N and C-O) via metal-ligand cooperation in transition metal complexes featuring pincer-type ligands. In 2014 Matthias moved back to Germany, specifically to the University of Bremen, holding a returnee fellowship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Currently Matthias holds an Independent Researcher position of the Central Research and Development Fund of the University of Bremen. As a Junior Group Leader Matthias´ group is integrated in the research laboratories of Prof. Jens Beckmann at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Chrystallography in the Department of Biology/ Chemistry (FB2) at the University of Bremen.
