About the Project

The project will investigate controlling the self-assembly of multiple components within gel networks across length scales. The project builds upon our recent work in the area (e.g. Chem. Sci., 2021, 12, 9720; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2021, 60, 9973; Nature Chem., 2015, 7, 848). The aim is to understand and control the assembly of multiple self-assembling components in a single pot in order to generate specific network types. The project will involve both synthesis of the gelators as well as characterisation techniques including rheology, small angle scattering, and NMR spectroscopy. The project will be carried out in a dynamic research group. As such, applicants must be able to work as a member of a team, as well as independently. The successful applicant will interact with complementary research groups and attend national and international conferences.

It is the University of Glasgow’s mission to foster an inclusive climate, which ensures equality in our working, learning, research and teaching environment.

We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equality.

As an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder, the School of Chemistry has equality, diversity and inclusion at its heart, and actively supports applications from all sections of society.
