(2 Posts available, appointment will be between Grades 6 to 8 dependent on skills and experience).
£27,929 to £34,308 per annum (Research Associate, Grade 6)
£35,333 to £42,155 per annum (Senior Research Associate, Grade 7)
£44,737 to £51,805 per annum (Research Fellow, Grade 8)
The School of Chemistry have two postdoctoral researcher positions in synthetic organic chemistry, in the group of Professor Andy Cammidge. The project, funded by EPSRC, is ambitious and will target new chemistries to synthesise novel extended aromatic structures that can be considered as synthetic fragments of graphene and curved analogues.
The research will focus on developing novel iterative and cascade sequences using cross-coupling as key steps. Working with an extended team of postgraduate researchers, you will develop new catalytic protocols for efficient aryl-aryl coupling and ring closure in challenging substrates, investigate strategies for iteration in solution and on solid support, design host templates to control multiple couplings to give macrocyclic precursors, and work with collaborators and their groups for characterisation (Prof Khimyak, solid state NMR, Prof Meech, photophysics).
The two appointments will be considered at Research Associate, Senior Research Associate or Research Fellow grades dependent on skills and experience. Within your personal statement please specify the grade of role you would like to be considered for. You must be able to meet all the essential criteria for that grade set out in the Person Specification, full details can be found in the Candidate Brochure.
These full-time posts are available immediately on a fixed term period of up to 3 years (depending on budget availability).
UEA offers a variety of flexible working options and although this role is advertised on a full-time basis, we encourage applications from individuals who would prefer a flexible working pattern including annualised hours, compressed working hours, part time, job share, term-time only and/or hybrid working. Details of preferred hours should be stated in the personal statement and will be discussed further at interview.
