Education and career
After graduating from the Ehrenbürg-Gymnasium in Forchheim, Doris Kunz studied chemistry from 1993 to 1997 at the Westphalian Wilhelms University . After her doctorate in 2000 in Gerhard Erker's research group in Münster , Kunz worked as a postdoc for two years in John F. Hartwig's research group at Yale University . From 2003 to 2008 she completed her habilitation at the Institute for Organic Chemistry at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg under Peter Hofmann . Kunz then held various lectureships at the University of Stuttgart , the University of Heidelberg and the University of Burgundy . Since 2009 she has held a W3 professorship for inorganic chemistry at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen.
The research focus of the Kunz group includes the chemistry of multidentate N-heterocyclic carbene ligands, as well as mono- and dipyrido carbenes. The development of new synthetic routes for N-heterocyclic carbenes is also one of the research interests of the group. Kunz is also researching the synthesis of ionic ligands and their use in the catalysis of chemical reactions.
