About the Project
The PhD consists in the synthesis and development of the monomers required for EO and the preparation of the polymers that will be tested in several Photonic Devices in collaboration with the research group of Professor Frederic Gardes.
This PhD provides a unique opportunity for a chemistry student not only to be trained in the state-on-art of Organic Chemistry but also to work in real applications of the molecules synthesised having a close inside in the needs of UK optical industry, maximising the employability after the PhD.
Moreover, this position will give the opportunity to interact with different fields and collaborate with other research projects that are ongoing in our laboratory.
For these reasons a highly motivated hard/working student with a strong background in Synthetic Organic Chemistry is required.
The project is funded for 3.5 years and welcomes applicants from the UK and EU who have or expect to obtain at least an upper second class degree in Chemistry. Funding will cover fees and a stipend at current research council rates per annum (201920 rates are £15,009).
Due to funding restrictions this position is only open to UK students who meet the RCUK eligibility criteria
