Organic synthesis is a key technology in the development and commercial success of agrochemicals. Rapid scale-up is important in decreasing time-to-market, and final production processes have to be very efficient if the product is to be price-competitive.
Posted January 2019. A PhD position is available to start in October 2019 for an outstanding candidate to work under the supervision of Dr Matthias Baud in the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and well-organized student with an interest in applying the full range of synthetic organic chemistry methods to design and construct conformationally well-defined molecules (foldamers) that covalently recognise key elements of protein surfaces.
