Stojan Stavber (1975–1987) served as a Research Assistant at “J. Stefan̶a; Institute; (1987–1995) a Research Associate at the same institute; (1990–1995) an Assistant Professor at the University of Ljubljana; (1997–2004) a Deputy of Head of Department for Physical and Organic Chemistry “J. Stefan” Institute. Since 1995, he has been serving as the Head of the Laboratory of Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry “J. Stefan” Institute; 2000, a Scientific Advisor at the same institute; 2001, a Scientific Advisor, University of Ljubljana; 2010, an Associate Professor at Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School; 2010, a Member of the Centre of Excellence for Integrated Approaches in Chemistry and Biology of Proteins (CIPKeBiP; www.cipkebip.org ). His scientific interest and expertise are among transformations of organic compounds under green reaction conditions: organic reactions in aqueous media, ionic liquids or fluorous liquids, and organic reactions under solvent-free reaction conditions; aerobic oxidative transformations of organic compounds catalysed by nonmetal catalysts; selective halogenation of organic compounds under mild reaction conditions. He received several awards: Zois Award for outstanding scientific achievements; the main state award for science given by Ministry of Science and Technology, Republic of Slovenia (2000). He currently serves as the Head of Laboratory for Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry at “Jozef Stefan̶a; Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia. His scientific interest is connected with green organic chemistry, especially focused to aerobic oxidative transformations catalyzed by nonmetal catalysts and halogenations performed in aqueous media and ionic or fluorous liquids or under solvent-free reactions conditions. He authored more than 120 scientific articles published in high-ranked scientific journals. The team of Dr. Stavber is internationally recognized as a research group of experts and specialists for organohalogen chemistry and organic green chemistry.
