A fully funded, industry-linked PhD Studentship is available in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde under the supervision of Professor William J. Kerr and Dr Marc Reid.
Applicants must have, or expect to obtain, a strong MChem (or equivalent) degree as a requirement of the funding. Additionally, the position is well suited to students with significant experience in Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Computational Methods obtained either through industrial placement or as part of an MChem/MSci research project.
In bringing together two academic supervisors with complementary expertise in organic synthesis and computational chemistry the PhD student will receive elevated levels of training in the areas of preparative chemistry, organometallic chemistry, reaction mechanism, data science, functional programming, and the associated analytical/spectroscopic methods.
This studentship is available to start now and until October 2019, and is funded in collaboration with world-leading pharmaceutical company, GSK. The project will result in new data-methods for the design and understanding of metal-catalysed transformations of relevance in both academic and industrial pharmaceutical settings.
Please submit your application by e-mail to Dr Laura C. Paterson ([email protected]), which should include:
• Cover letter, detailing your experience and motivation for PhD studies • CV with two referees details included • Full transcripts from your undergraduate degree • Other pertinent information (e.g., publications, awards, and other distinctions)
