4-year PhD Studentship in Development of Advanced Catalysis in Chemical Synthesis

The University of Nottingham, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a PhD position in catalysis. Applicants should apply before July 27, 2020.

As part of an active EPSRC Prosperity Partnership Programme (link), involving a collaboration between GlaxoSmithKline and the Universities of Nottingham and Strathclyde, we are offering a 48-month PhD studentship in the development of advanced methodology for the rapid and efficient synthesis of molecular fragments relevant to the pharmaceutical and related industries. This project will involve the development of advanced (including asymmetric) catalysis (fully funded catalysis scholarships) and synthesis and will be supervised by Professors Hon Wai Lam and Simon Woodward. It will take place in the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory (link) at the University of Nottingham, and will involve collaboration with scientists at GlaxoSmithKline and the University of Strathclyde.

This studentship is available in October 2020, funded through a stipend covering PhD tuition fees (at the Home/EU rate) and a tax-free living allowance (currently 15,009 per annum, increasing annually), pro-rata for part-time study. The student will gain expertise in organic synthesis and catalysis, and acquire skills in problem solving, spectroscopic analysis and scientific communication. For informal enquiries, please contact: and
