  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials.
  Oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters.
  Dr BM Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on work in the Partridge group, this project will explore new oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters. This work is suitable for ambitious students with a strong interest organic synthesis, and will involve aspects of catalysis, organoboron chemistry, and asymmetric synthesis..
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered about self-cleaning surfaces. an object that cleanse itself just by shining light on it? Such technology already exists, and the field is fast developing.
  Quantum Control: shaping light to enhance chemistry
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By modulating the light with which you excite materials we can enhance specific electronic, nuclear and even chemical reactions! The goal is therefore to set up a MIIPS pulse shaper and to adapt it to our Helios transient absorption system..
  Recognition and sensing of ions, bioanions, and biomolecules by photo-activated metal complexes
  Prof JA Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Thomas group is investigating the host-guest chemistry of redox-active and/or photo-active, self-assembled macrocyclic structures.
  Screening of chemical libraries using iPS models for investigating the role of prion protein in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof B Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. AD has been identified as a protein misfolding disease (proteopathy). The disease is caused by accumulation of two major amyloids.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
  Synthesis of saturated nitrogen heterocycles and alkaloids by using organolithiums or dipolar cycloaddition chemistry
  Prof I Coldham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research group focuses on the synthesis of nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds, especially with chiral organometallic compounds and dipolar cycloaddition reactions.
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
