Additional information: Please note that this post is fixed-term for one year

The School of Science and Technology is one of the most innovative in the UK, with state-of-the-art facilities in Bioscience, Chemistry, Computing, Physics, Forensics, Sport Science and Technology. We pride ourselves on our strong multidisciplinary ethos and delivery of excellent taught courses. Our cutting-edge research attracts substantial external funding to underpin our research programmes and PhD supervision.  We are committed to delivering outstanding teaching and research that changes lives and society.

Applications are invited for an EPSRC funded one-year fixed term postdoctoral fellowship working under the supervision of Dr. Sophie Benjamin (https://www.ntu.ac.uk/staff-profiles/science-technology/sophie-benjamin). The successful candidate will design and synthesise novel main group organometallic reagents, investigating their reactivity with organic substrates and potential catalytic applications. 

You will have a PhD in chemistry or equivalent. Extensive experience in organometallic or inorganic synthesis under anerobic conditions, including Schlenk line and glove-box techniques is essential. You will have expertise in the characterisation of organometallic compounds including X-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods. Experience of synthetic main group chemistry and/or main group catalysis is desirable. You will be able to work collaboratively at a high level and provide academic leadership to drive the project forwards, completing research objectives within a short timeframe.

The position will be based at NTU Clifton Campus in the newly built Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Centre (ISTeC).
