This industrially funded post-doctoral position at the University of Reading in the research groups of Wayne Hayes, John Mckendrick and Adrian Williams targets the development of self-immolative materials and formulations for the colorimetric disclosure of toxic compounds in a range of environments. The project will provide excellent training in the field of organic materials and formulation science – it will involve organic synthesis, characterization of new materials (using techniques such as NMR, IR, UV spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and thermal analysis (DSC, TGA) in addition to the development of solution-based formulations for these compounds. In addition to gaining invaluable scientific technical skills, this project will also develop independent research skills by providing training on the use of databases (such as Web of Knowledge, Scifinder Scholar, Reaxsys), presentation skills and writing reports. The post is available for 24-months.
