We are offering a 48-month doctoral studentship in the development and mechanistic investigation of novel catalytic reactions for the synthesis of target molecules relevant to the pharmaceutical and related industries in collaboration between GlaxoSmithKline and the Universities of Nottingham and Strathclyde.
About the position:
- The student will gain expertise in organic synthesis and catalysis, and acquire skills in problem solving, spectroscopic analysis and scientific communication.
- This project will involve the investigation of state of the art chemical reactions and catalytic systems using advanced spectroscopy, modelling and theory, this project will be supervised by Pete Licence and Mike George.
- This studentship is available in October 2020, funded through a stipend covering PhD tuition fees (at the Home/EU rate) and a tax-free living allowance (currently £15,009 per annum, increasing annually), pro-rata for part-time study.
- This project will be hosted by the school of Chemistry in Nottingham and you will work in laboratories spanning the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory and facilities based on University Park.
- As a core project within this Prosperity Partnership this project will involve collaboration with scientists at University of Strathclyde and GlaxoSmithKline and .
- Applications are invited from outstanding UK /EU students holding a good undergraduate degree and Masters-level qualification in Chemistry.
- You will have experience in conducting original research in organic synthesis.
