The Cardiff School of Chemistry at Cardiff University is inviting application for a Research Associate in Synthetic Chemistry and Nanomaterials (11371BR). The school is keen to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist with proven intellectual and technical abilities to work on an exciting multidisciplinary project based on synthetic chemistry, nanomaterials and advanced spectroscopies. The 3-year project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, will be co-supervised by Dr Joseph Beames (spectroscopy and computation) and Dr Ian Fallis (materials and characterisation).

About the project:

The key objectives of this interdisciplinary project are to:

  • synthesise a range of photosensitisers and doped nanoparticles and fully describe their properties;
  • use advanced spectroscopic and theoretical methods to investigate the photosensitisers, and describe the energy upconversion performance of the doped nanoparticles;
  • explore and demonstrate the applications of the new energy upconverting nanoparticles.


  • Postgraduate degree at PhD level (or nearing completion/ submission) in synthetic chemistry or relevant industrial experience
  • Knowledge, Skills and Experience
  • An established expertise and proven portfolio of research or relevant industrial experience within the following research fields: Synthetic chemistry; Spectroscopic methods; Nanomaterials characterisation
  • Proven ability to publish in international journals / national/ international conferences and/ or other research outputs
  • Knowledge and understanding of competitive research funding to be able to develop applications to funding bodies
  • Proven ability in effective and persuasive communication
  • Fluency in Welsh, written and oral
