PhD Studentship: Inorganic Coordination Chemistry at University Of Cambridge

University Of Cambridge has an opening phd position. All students regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply. Applications are invited up to September 30, 2018.

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship starting in January, April or October 2019 to work with Professor Dominic Wright on a project which will investigate the coordination chemistry of a series of commercially-available and novel ligands that are relevant to cleaning technologies. The mechanism(s) of activation of catalysts with atmospheric oxygen will be explored using modern spectroscopic and structural techniques. The programme will provide training in modern, industrially-relevant synthesis and characterisation techniques.

The studentship is a 3-year EPSRC Industrial CASE award, co-funded by Procter & Gamble. The student will spend some time working within the company during their PhD.

Applicants should have (or expect to obtain) the equivalent of a UK first class or upper second class honours degree (and preferably a Masters degree) in chemistry, or other relevant discipline. Experience and knowledge of synthetic inorganic chemistry would be particularly advantageous.

The studentship will provide a maintenance grant and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate, and is available to UK and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements of the Research Councils. Students from EU countries who do not meet the residency requirements may be eligible for a fees-only award. Owing to funding restrictions imposed by the sponsor, non-EU citizens cannot be considered.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, detailed academic transcripts and the contact details for at least two academic referees, and should be sent by email to Professor Dominic Wright (, to whom any informal enquiries can be addressed.

If you wish to be considered for any other available studentships in the Chemistry Department starting in October 2019, you must also apply online via the University Applicant Portal by November 10th 2018 (further information at Please note that there is an application fee.
