Boekhoven holds an undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Groningen, where he majored in organic chemistry, and a PhD degree (2012) in chemistry from Delft University of Technology, both in the Netherlands. Before his appointment at TUM, he was a Rubicon postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University in Chicago. In January 2016 Boekhoven was appointed as Rudolf Mößbauer Professor at TUM, heading a research group in supramolecular materials.

The research group of Job Boekhoven (b. 1984) aims at developing conceptually new supramolecular materials through the use of self-assembly. The platforms developed in the lab will be used for a wide range of applications, including healthcare and robotics. Research in the group is heavily bio-inspired and uses organic, physical and supramolecular chemistry as its toolboxes.
