About the Project
Based in the School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham, this project will provide extensive training in synthetic organic chemistry and a variety of analytical techniques (NMR, MS, HPLC, IR, UV). Furthermore, this project offers the possibility of a 3-month research placement at GlaxoSmithKline during the funded period of the PhD.
The candidate will have a degree that qualifies them for PhD study with a particular interest for organic chemistry and the development of new synthetic methods. The studentship will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate has been found, candidates are therefore encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Prof C J Hayes ([Email Address Removed]) for more details about the project.
Formal applications should be made through the University of Nottingham online system:
Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in Chemistry or closely related subject. A relevant Master's degree that demonstrates previous research experience in synthetic chemistry and/or catalysis is an advantage.
