About This PhD Project

Project Description

Two 36-month PhD positions in synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemistry are available within the research group of Professor Nicholas Long (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/n.long).

This position involves the synthesis and evaluation of new inorganic compounds for molecular imaging, particularly dual-modal imaging. The project will feature the synthesis of new organic ligands and chelates, and their metal coordination chemistry with transition metals and lanthanides. Applications will be evaluated in collaboration with biomedical collaborators and will involve optical imaging, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography. The work builds on recent research in the group e.g. Chem. Eur. J. 2015, (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406008); Angew. Chem. 2014 (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201405442).

The other position features the synthesis and application of cyclic metallocene oligomers and can be seen here: https://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=79959

The positions are available to both UK and EU graduates with a 1st or 2:1 class UG degree in Chemistry. Previous experience with synthetic inorganic/organometallic chemistry and/or biomedical imaging is not a requirement but would be an advantage.

Interested applicants should contact Prof. Long () by email, along with a CV and the contact details of two referees. These positions are available for October 2017.
