About the Project
The successful candidate will be responsible for the design, synthesis, structural characterisation and assessment of MOF catalysts in a wide range of transformations. A strong interest in carrying out research across different research areas will enable the successful candidate to acquire the broad range of skills and experience required. The successful candidate need not possess all of these skills initially but should be interested in chemical catalysis and reaction kinetics.
All aspects of the project will be supervised by an experienced academic and industrial team. As well as being an impactful and fascinating area of current research, this iCASE PhD will provide an ideal stepping-stone towards a career in either academia or the chemical industry. The School of Chemistry provides an excellent environment for research and study. https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/chemistry/ The research will take place in both a synthetic chemistry and catalysis laboratory (M. L. Clarke) and a materials research laboratory (P. A. Wright) and will include project meetings and extended research visits to GSK Stevenage. The School has extensive NMR (solution- and solid-state) and MS facilities, and a range of materials characterisation techniques, including diffraction, electron microscopy, porosimetry and access to molecular modelling. Details of study at St Andrews University can be found at https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/why/ and https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/chemistry/prospective/pg/why/
