Description

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 online application.

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.
