PhD in Chemistry: New flow chemistry methods to access energetic materials

Within the proposed programme of research, alternative starting materials for the flow chemical synthesis of the hexaazaisowurtzitane structure will be explored. Read more

Synthesis and characterisation of MOF-MXene composites for sustainability applications

Supervisory Team.   Dr Darren Bradshaw and Dr Nuno Bimbo. Project description. A fully-funded 4 year PhD studentship in materials chemistry is available at the University of Southampton within the Functional Inorganic, Materials and Supramolecular research group. Read more

Exploiting 17O solid-state NMR spectroscopy of catalysts and porous solids

This PhD studentship is an exciting opportunity to develop new approaches to solid-state NMR in collaboration with industry. 17O solid-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is an excellent local probe of ordered and disordered materials, due to its large chemical shift range giving excellent discrimination between bulk and defect sites.

Across multiple timescales and length scales: Using in-situ X-ray scattering to understand hierarchical MOF assembly

We seek to recruit a motivated PhD student for a joint 4-year project between the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham, and Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron facility. Read more

PhD studentship in sustainable mechanosynthesis of green battery materials

Applications are sought for a funded joint PhD position joint between the University of Birmingham (UoB) and Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) in Berlin. Read more

Permeation of Hydrogen Isotopes into Fusion Reactor Materials

This project is co-sponsored by UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) / Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) Hydrogen-3 Advanced Technology (H3AT) Research Centre. Read more

Catalysts for mild-conditions ammonia synthesis and decomposition

Applications are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham. Energy storage technologies are a key part of the transition to a sustainable energy system, enabling the balancing of intermittent renewable electricity supplies and low-carbon transportation. Read more

Supramolecular Chemistry of Energetic Materials

Please contact Dr Scott Dalgarno (s.j.dalgarno@hw.ac.uk) for further details. We have broad interests in host-guest chemistry, theoretical chemistry, and using these in tandem to work with energetic materials in a variety of different ways. Read more

Enhancing Protein and Ligand Sampling in Molecular Simulations by Fully Adaptive Simulated Tempering (FAST)

Supervisory Team.   Prof J.W. Essex, Dr Michael Bodnarchuk (AZ), Dr Ian Wall (GSK). Project description. Binding free energy calculations are a widely used technique in the pharmaceutical industry to identify molecules which may be usefully developed into drug candidates. Read more

Co-crystal Minerals on Titan: Structure, Spectroscopy, and Photochemistry.

Opportunities are available for international or New Zealand candidates to perform laboratory-based research in the Ennis Lab toward the characterization and chemistry of co-crystal minerals located on Saturn’s moon Titan. Read more
