2 PhD Studentships
Dr Adrian Chaplin
PhD project: Organometallic chemistry of mechanically interlocked transition metal complexes
Supervisor: Dr Adrian Chaplin
Deadline: 29th February 2016
Funding availability: EU/UK (Funded)
Two ERC funded studentships are available to start in early 2016. The projects involve the synthesis and chemistry of interlocked systems featuring macrocyclic “pincer” ligands, currently being developed in the Chaplin group. These interlocked supramolecular systems will be used to study the fundamental organometallic chemistry of C–H bond activation and alkane dehydrogenation reactions. Both projects will entail a range of practical work including, ligand orientated organic synthesis and the manipulation and characterisation of reactive organometallic metal species under an inert atmosphere.
Further information about the Chaplin group can be found at:
Applicants should have (or be about to receive) an honours degree (at least II.1 or equivalent) in chemistry. Practical experience in synthetic supramolecular and/or organometallic chemistry is highly desirable. The studentships provide 3.5 years of full funding for UK/EU students.
How to apply:
Enquires and informal applications should include a C.V and be made as soon as possible to Dr Adrian Chaplin (email@example.com).
