Nicole Jung studied chemistry at the University of Frankfurt am Main. After her diploma in 2004 she changed to KIT, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (formerly: University Karlsruhe (TH)), where she worked in the field of combinatorial chemistry and method development for solid-phase chemistry. She received her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Stefan Bräse in 2008. Nicole is working at the Compound Platform (ComPlat) as part of the group of Stefan Bräse at KIT-Campus North.
She is a member of the Institute of Organic Chemistry but also of the Institute of Biological and Chemical Systems at KIT, being involved in the university and the Helmholtz activities. She supervises a small group of PhD students working on method development in organic chemistry, and is leading the activities of the Compound Platform for compound synthesis to enable applications in biology and materials sciences.
Her most important infrastructure projects are the Molecule Archive, the chemotion repository and the participation in the Science Data Center MoMaF. Driven by the need of open, advanced software for chemistry specific solutions, she and Stefan Bräse started to build a team of software engineers working on software projects called Chemotion in 2013.
