  A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently devised a novel conjunctive reagent that is generated in the presence of a palladium catalyst, and demonstrated that this can be exploited in the synthesis of chiral heterocyclic products.
  An asymmetric synthesis of atropisomeric functionalised intermediates
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atropisomers are stereoisomers that occur because of hindered rotation about a single bond, and this leads to two or more conformers that interconvert slowly enough to be isolated as single components.
  Catalytic asymmetric methods to make chiral building blocks
  Prof S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing need within the pharmaceutical and fine chemical sector to develop chemical building blocks that possess different shapes and morphology to those commonly used to construct molecules of biological interest.
  Characterisation and design of heterogeneous catalysts for the petrochemical industry
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Chemical probes to investigate mechanisms of bacterial resistance
  Prof S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance is seen as a significant threat to modern healthcare, especially in light of an increasing and aging population who will place additional burden on this sector.
  Computational Astrochemistry/Algorithm development for Quantum Dynamics Calculations
  Prof AJHM Meijer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum Dynamics calculations are significantly harder than standard electronic structure calculations due to the exponential scaling with respect to basis set size.
  Computational Modelling of Charge-Transfer Interfaces for Perovskite Solar Cells
  Dr N Martsinovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar cells have the potential to provide us with renewable energy and to help us avoid environmental problems associated with fossil fuels.
  Computational photochemistry/Vibrational control in transition metal complexes
  Prof AJHM Meijer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Controlling the outcome of chemical reactions is arguably one of the holy grails of chemical physics. Recent experiments1 have shown that it is possible to direct a photophysical process using infrared light, taking a step towards achieving this goal.
  Computational Spectroscopy/Hydrogen-tunneling at elevated temperatures in the gas-phase
  Prof AJHM Meijer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen-tunnelling is key to many reactions involving biomolecules. However, hydrogen tunnelling is not easily detected directly at room temperature.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
