    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This studentship is only open to UK or EU nationals. The successful applicant should possess a good (1st or 2.1 UK or equivalent) degree in chemistry from a well-regarded institution.

A funded studentship is available in the group of Prof. Rachel O’Reilly at the University of Birmingham to study for a PhD that is focused on the development of precise polymer nanoparticles. The projects are across a range of areas that the group are interested:
• Polymerisation-induced self-assembly of functional monomers
• Crystallisation-driven self-assembly of degradable polymer amphiphiles
• Synthesis and characterisation of novel nanoparticle assemblies using advanced scattering and microscopy techniques

Projects will have a balance of synthesis, self-assembly and characterization and will be ideal for students that are interested in a fundamental research project with an applied goal.

Enquiries and informal applications should include a C.V. and be made to Prof. Rachel O’Reilly ().
