About the Project

Sustainable Chemicals Innovations Enabling Net Carbon Emissions (SCIENCE)

N-Functionalisation of alkenes (Studentship 2)

(Based at Warwick PI Paul Wilson with Martin Wills and Patrick Unwin; Nottingham supervisor Peter Licence and Debbie Kays).


2 PhD studentships are available for a 2021 start as part a major new collaborative EPSRC Prosperity Partnership project between Lubrizol and the Universities of Nottingham and Warwick.

The project will develop a culture of embedding sustainability in chemicals and polymer manufacturing from the earliest stages of design through to industrial production and use.

Successful applicants will be registered to study at Warwick and will benefit from joint supervision across all three partners and will be expected to spend time in all three organisations. Students will be working alongside research fellows associated with the projects and side by side with industrially based scientists focussing on sustainability in a diverse research culture with the opportunity to contribute to project design and execution. In addition, it is expected that the students will be active in outreach activities encouraging diversity in chemistry.

Studentships will be available from October 1st 2021 as 4 year PhD places with stipend at EPSRC standard rates starting at £15,609 per year with awards increasing every year, typically with inflation. All projects will focus on the use of sustainable and renewable chemicals working towards continuous flow-chemistry, with the aim to use data-driven decision making to enhance productivity and efficiency. Projects will be largely synthetic supported by a wide range of high level analytical techniques including advanced spectroscopy and microscopy. Suitable materials will be scaled up for industrial testing for a range of market sectors to meet the global issues associated with the use of fossil-based chemistry. Please contact the lead academic Dr Paul Wilson - for further details and for clarification on eligibility.

Applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Paul Wilson for further details and apply via the UoW Postgraduate Application Form.
