Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications
We are always looking for talented postdoctoral co-workers with experience in organometallic, synthetic organic or physical organic chemistry to join the group. Please get in touch if you are an outstanding candidate intetested in applying fellowships such as Marie Curie or Newton International fellowships to work with us. We will be happy to support your application.
Funded PhD Studentship - "New Chirality for New Catalysts"
We have a funded studentship available to start in October 2013 working on the topic of "New Chirality for New Catalysts" which builds on our recent discoveries in the synthesis of mechanically planar chiral mechanically interlocked molecules. The successful student will apply our novel methods for the synthesis of mechanically planar chiral rotaxanes to the synthesis of novel rotaxane based ligands and demonstrate their potential in a wide range of asymmetric transformations. This PhD project will combine cutting-edge Organic synthesis with asymmetric catalysis and include elements of molecular modelling.
During the project the successful candidate will be trained in a wide range of cutting-edge synthetic organic techniques and analytical methods. In addition, the highly interdisciplinary nature of the project, drawing on aspects of chemical nanotechnology, materials science and catalysis, will allow the student to develop expertise in a number of other areas by taking advantage of the diverse research environment in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London.
All candidates are strongly advised to initially submit their CV and covering letter by e-mail to Dr Goldup (email@example.com) to verify eligibility for the position. All shortlisted candidates will be expected to attend the interview in person.
Formal applications to the College will require completion of the online application form via the following link: http://www.sbcs.qmul.ac.uk/prospectivestudents/research/studentships
Chinese Scholarship Council PhD Studentships
We have two fee waivers available for CSC studentships in the group. The successful candidates will work on the application of mechanical bonding to problems in small molecule sensing, electronic materials and catalysis.
Potential candidates should contact Dr Goldup directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a CV and covering letter to verify eligibility for the position. All shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by Skype. The deadline for applications is the 31st of January.
