Postdoctoral Research Associate in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry
Department of Chemistry, Chemistry Research Laboratory, 12 Mansfield Road,
Oxford, OX1 3TA
Grade 7: £33,309 - £40,927 per annum
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Synthetic
Inorganic Chemistry to work under the supervision of Dr Daniel Scott for a
period of up to 30 months. The project involves the synthesis, isolation, and
characterisation of air-sensitive metallo- and organoradicals believed to be
mechanistically relevant to the emerging field of photoredox catalysis. It
also involves the use of photoredox methods to achieve the direct
functionalisation of dinitrogen, N2, using well-defined transition metal
complexes as co-catalysts.

Applicants must hold a PhD in Chemistry or an equivalent subject (or be close
to completion) prior to taking up the appointment. The research requires
experience in molecular inorganic synthesis and air-sensitive chemistry.
Experience in characterisation of paramagnetic compounds is desirable and
experience in photochemistry or photophysical characterisation is also
beneficial, but not essential.
You will be expected to manage your own academic research and administrative
activities, including collaborative photophysical studies with the group of
Professor Stephen Faulkner. This involves small scale project management, to
co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines.
The post will be based in the Department of Chemistry, Chemistry Research
Laboratory, 12 Mansfield Road, OX1 3TA and is available as soon as possible.
You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your
The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday, Friday 7 January 2022.
Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
The University of Oxford is a Bronze Athena SWAN holder and the Department of
Chemistry is a Silver award holder. Applications are particularly welcome from
women and black and ethnic minority candidates, who are under-represented in
Chemistry research posts in Oxford.
