Research Associate in Organic Synthesis & Methodology

Cardiff University - Cardiff School of Chemistry

We seek to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist with proven intellectual and technical abilities to work on a synthetic organic chemistry project. The 12-month project, funded by the Life Sciences Research Network Wales, will be led by Drs Ian Fallis and Duncan Browne in the School of Chemistry, with collaborators in the Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine.

The overall focus of the project is to develop protocols for radiotracer precursor synthesis. Preliminary results have established a number of viable routes and the project seek to determine which of these, or combination thereof, is most viable. This work is a prequel to pre-clinical and ultimately clinical studies. Interested applicants should have a first degree in Chemistry and preferably a PhD in a relevant area of synthetic chemistry.
