Research Associate (Lennox Lab)

University of Bristol - School of Chemistry

Location: Bristol
Salary: £34,304 to £38,587 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 23rd December 2021
Closes: 17th January 2022
Job Ref: ACAD105793

The role

The Lennox Lab, located at the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol, is inviting applications for the recruitment of a talented, ambitious and motivated PDRA with an interest in the manufacturing applications of fundamental science. The post is funded by a multi-centre EPSRC funded programme grant, PhotoElectro (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/photoelectro/photo-electro.aspx), which aims to apply continuous reactors of photo, electro and thermal chemistry to transform how fine chemicals and medicines are manufactured. The position is available for 12 months in the first instance, and is available immediately.

What will you be doing?

The PDRA will work under the supervision of Dr Alastair Lennox (www.lennoxlab.com) but will join this large multidisciplinary project, and so will include collaboration with colleagues from the Universities of Nottingham and Southampton. The primary responsibility for the PDRA will be on the design and development of continuous electrochemical and photochemical processes, but will be required to work on multiple projects simultaneously.

Recent results from related projects have been reported in Org. Process Res. Dev. 25, 1943–1949 (2021); Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2020, 59, 1155 and Chem Sci, 2021, 12, 10252.

You should apply if

Applicants should have a PhD in Chemistry or have submitted their thesis prior to taking up the appointment. The lab-based project requires the PDRA to have experience in (ideally 2 of) electrochemistry, photochemistry or flow chemistry. The successful candidate will have a keen interest and enthusiasm to expand their expertise into new areas and in unfamiliar disciplines, to work on high risk/high reward projects, and to work beyond the traditional boundaries of organic synthesis both independently and through collaboration. They will have excellent opportunities to develop supervisory, written, teaching and organisational skills, and so this post provides ideal training for a career in industry or academia.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
