About the Project
Funding is available to develop a range of novel enantioselective organocatalytic methods employing chiral Lewis-bases. The synthetic strategy that we develop will be used for the enantioselective synthesis of a range of carbo- and heterocyclic products, with application in target natural product synthesis.
Students interested in undertaking a PhD in the Smith group in this research area should register their interest as soon as possible. Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Andrew Smith ([email protected]). For more information see the ADS group web pages at https://ads-group.squarespace.com/. We encourage applications for the EaSI-CAT Centre for Doctoral Training (http://www.criticat.co.uk) with the application deadline likely to be in January 2021 for September 2021 entry.
