  New Directions in Thermal Batteries
  Prof J T S Irvine
Application Deadline: 20 April 2019
Thermal batteries operate at high temperature and offer exceptional long term stability and very high power for important applications such as ejector seats with emerging thoughts for alternative propulsion systems.
  Improved pretreatments and fractionation of soft and hardwoods to access feedstock chemicals
  Dr N.J. Westwood
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
This PhD will appeal to candidates who are interested in combining skills in chemistry with a drive to develop the use of renewable resources.
  PhD in Enantioselective Catalysis and mechanistic studies
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is currently directed towards developing catalytic methods for the promotion of a range of synthetic transformations with varying applications in enantioselective catalysis.
  Multifunctional Metal Organic Framework Catalysts for Organic Transformations
  Prof P A Wright, Dr M Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have great potential within heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemicals synthesis, which derives from their high and controllable porosity and their great chemical versatility.
  Giant Rydberg polaritons
  Dr H Ohadi
Applications accepted all year round
Exploiting the laws of quantum mechanics for the benefit of humanity in the so-called "second quantum revolution" is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
  New directions in Cu-catalysed cross-coupling
  Dr AJB Watson
Applications accepted all year round
Fully funded PhD studentships, in collaboration with AstraZeneca, are available in the lab of Dr Allan Watson at the University of St Andrews.
  PhD in the Biosynthesis and Enzymology of Fluorine Containing Metabolites in Streptomyces Bacteria
  Prof D O'Hagan
Applications accepted all year round
Research in the O’Hagan group has had a focus on the biosynthesis of fluorine containing natural products and the identification of a fluorination enzyme, ‘the fluorinase’, from Streptomyces cattleya.[1] Fluorine is very rare in nature, and in those rare cases where an organism can form a C-F bond from fluoride ion, then the enzymology is unique and interesting.
