Research Fellow in Chemical Processing

University of Leeds - School of Chemistry

Do you have experience working at the interface between chemistry and chemical engineering? Are you passionate about developing sustainable processes, with an interest in continuous flow systems?

Outstanding individuals with a background in the relevant fields are invited to apply for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position on the EPSRC funded project in Chemical Processing. You will work within both the School of Chemistry and the School of Chemical and Process Engineering and be part of a multidisciplinary team working on the development of a unique flow reactor platform. The project will deliver a new technology for high-throughput screening of industrially-relevant transformations, with a focus on the development of more sustainable systems. 

With a PhD (or will have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the appointment) in chemical engineering, chemistry or a closely related field, you will work within the groups of Dr Charlotte Willans (Chemistry), Dr Richard Bourne (Chemistry/Engineering), Dr Bao Nguyen (Chemistry/Engineering) and Prof Nik Kapur (Engineering). You will also work closely with industrial partners on the project, disseminating work as appropriate and ensuring that we are working towards industrially-relevant goals.
