PhD studentship in synthetic organic chemistry to develop new transformations involving radical chemistry

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Tuesday, March 31, 2020
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The project will involve utilizing both synthetic and mechanistic approaches to the development of new synthetic transformations involving radical chemistry. The generation and utilization of various heteroatom-centered radicals will be central to this project. This is a burgeoning area of contemporary synthetic organic chemistry and represents a great opportunity for highly motivated graduate students.

Eligible candidates should have, or expect to obtain, a minimum of an upper second-class first degree (2:1) or European equivalent and a Masters in Chemistry. The successful candidate will also have a strong background in organic chemistry. First-hand experience in a relevant area of chemistry such as synthetic chemistry, catalysis or heterocyclic synthesis is highly desirable.

Supervisor - Dr Louis Morrill

Start date - 1st October 2020


Application deadline - 31st March 2020

We reserve the right to close applications early should sufficient applications be received.

Full UK/EU tuition fees (if applicable, any eligible non-home fee paying candidate must fund the remainder of the overseas fee themselves)

Doctoral stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum

Funding Notes

UK Research Council eligibility conditions (Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course, including for the purposes of full-time education. EU Nationals who do not meet this residency requirement are eligible for a fees only award, provided that they have been ordinarily resident in the EU for at least 3 years prior to the start of their proposed programme of study.)
