About the Project
Highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a PhD position in the School of Chemistry, available to commence on 1st October 2021 in the Sutherland research group. The PhD project will develop new organic synthetic chemistry for the rapid and efficient preparation of chemical imaging agents that can be used to study a range of neurological diseases (e.g. Chem. Sci., 2015, 6, 4772). In particular, we will investigate new transition metal catalysed transformations in combination with one-pot multi-bond forming reaction processes for the preparation of highly functional, drug-like heterocyclic scaffolds. These processes will be used to prepare molecular tracers that can be used in PET and SPECT imaging (Chem. Soc. Rev., 2011, 40, 149). For recent publications from this research programme, see: Chem. Commun., 2017, 53, 11008; J. Med. Chem., 2018, 61, 4103; Org. Lett., 2019, 21, 2488; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2020, 59, 8460. More information
on the Sutherland research group can be found at: http://www.chem.gla.ac.uk/staff/andrews/
Applications should be sent to Professor Andrew Sutherland and include a full CV, with details of all University course grades to date, contact details of at least two academic referees and a cover letter outlining your suitability for the PhD position.
Formal Applications: Please refer to the following website for details on how to apply:
Start-date: 1 October 2021
Eligibility: Applicants should hold (or expect to be awarded) a first class or upper-second class Masters degree (MSci, MChem, MSc, MRes) or BSc (Hons) degree in Chemistry and have research experience in synthetic organic chemistry.
