About the Project
The student will become proficient in organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry and in the design and development of complex multi-metallic catalytic cycles, as well as in the use of tools such as DFT and kinetics in order to study reaction mechanisms. Transferable and leadership skills such as reporting of results orally and in writing, time management, project planning and management will be developed.
Academic background of candidates:
Applicants are expected to hold, or about to obtain, a minimum upper second class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in Chemistry. A Masters degree in organic or organometallic chemistry and/or equivalent experience is desirable.
Contact for further Information:
Prof. Igor Larrosa
Open to UK applicants only.
