Post-Doctoral Research Associate: Electrochemical generation of oxygen and nitrogen centred radicals

University of Greenwich

Location: London
Salary: £27,025 to £32,236
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 1st January 2019
Closes: 28th February 2019
Job Ref: 1882-E
 

A Post doctoral research position is opened in the Lam Electrosynthesis group at the University of Greenwich 

Electrosynthesis is a powerful tool in organic chemistry that circumvents the afore-mentioned issues by allowing the generation of radicals under mild and green conditions. Even though a plethora of transformations have been developed and many of them have been successfully used in several industrial processes, the potential of preparative organic electrochemistry remains largely underestimated. The growing impetus to look for greener and cheaper alternatives to classic synthetic methodologies has further prompted us to investigate new electrochemical methodologies. 

Based on very encouraging preliminary results, we envision using electrochemistry to develop a novel way to generate aroyloxy/acryloyl and amidyl radicals under mild, green, economical and safe conditions.

We are now looking for a highly motivated Post-Doctoral Research Associate to join our team and explore further the synthetic potential of these radicals.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Kevin Lam - k.lam@greenwich.ac.uk 

 Duration:   1 year, Full-Time. Opportunity to extend for a further 12 months
