Stefan Kubik studied chemistry at Heinrich-Heine-Universität in Düsseldorf and at King's College in London. He graduated in 1988 with a diploma thesis in the group of Prof. Dr. G. Wulff, and received his Ph.D. in 1992 for work that he carried out in the same group about structural aspects of complexes of amylose with organic guest molecules. He worked for a while independently on a related topic before a NATO-fellowship allowed him in 1993 to spend one year as a post-doc in the group of Prof. J. Rebek Jr. at M.I.T. During this time, he studied self-replicating and self-assembling systems.
After returning to Düsseldorf in September 1994, he began investigations on the host-guest chemistry of cyclopeptides containing non-natural aromatic amino acid subunits. This work led to his Habilitation in April 2002.
Between March 2003 and October 2004, he taught organic chemistry at Bergische Universität Wuppertal as a substitute professor. Since November 2004, he is full professor at University of Kaiserslautern.
In 2012 he was invited professor at Université de Bourgogne, Dijon.
Stefan Kubik has authored more than 1000 keywords for the chemistry encyclopedia Römpp-Online. He was Guest Editor of the online themed collection of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry on Supramolecular Chemistry in Water and he is Associate Editor of the Journal of Inclusion Phenomena and Macrocyclic Chemistry
At the end of 2020, his textbook Supramolecular Chemistry – From Concepts to Applications was published, for which he was awarded the 2022 Literature Prize of the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie.
