M.Sc. Juha Hurmalainen

Juha Hurmalainen

Juha obtained his M.Sc. at the University of Jyväskylä in 2012 after which he continued in the inorganic chemistry Ph.D. program. In his Ph.D. project, Juha has focussed on main group radicals and reactive intermediates. He has used both experimental and computational methods in his research. During the academic year 2014-2015, Juha was staying at the Saint Mary's University with the help of generous research funding from the Academy of Finland. At the moment, Juha is finalizing his Ph.D. studies with an expected graduation date in November 2017. He is currently looking for postdoctoral positions and open chemistry-related jobs both in Finland and abroad.
