PhD Studentship is available at Robust Metallosupramolecular Cages for Biomedical and Catalytic Applications with Dr Paul Lusby, School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh Applications are invited for a PhD studentship within the Lusby group to develop supramolecular cages for a range of applications, from biomedicine to catalysis.

Supramolecular cages and capsules have shown certain promise in these areas, although major breakthroughs, particularly in the biological field have been somewhat hampered by the stability of such systems under a wide range of conditions. This studentship will build on recently published research to come out of the Lusby group (Chem Sci. 2015, 6, 756-760), where we have used an assembly-followed-by-fixing method to create robust capsules that exhibit novel host-guest chemistry.

A PhD in this area will involve a mixture of organic, inorganic and supramolecular synthesis, complex structure determination using advanced NMR and MS techniques, molecular design and modelling. One Fully-funded (tuition fees & stipend) 36-month PhD studentships is available to start on 1 September 2015, although there is opportunity for negotiation of a later start date.

Requirements: The candidate must satisfy EPSRC studentship eligibility requirements, having settled status in the UK and having been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship.

The EPSRC stipend rate for 2014/15 was £13,863 per annum.

How to Apply: Send a CV including two referees to Dr Paul Lusby (
