Applicants must hold a PhD in Chemistry or a relevant subject area, (or be close to completion) prior to taking up your appointment. The research requires experience in multi-step organic synthesis, particularly the synthesis of high molecular weight molecular redox-active compounds and π-conjugated oligomers. You will be expected to manage your own academic research and administrative activities. 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 and is available from March 2024.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your application.
