The project focusses on the synthesis and investigation of switchable molecular wires based on porphyrins and other redox-active molecular component. It is part of a large collaborative project funded by EPSRC (QMol, 01/11/2023–31/10/2028) which aims to realise a new generation of switchable materials for flexible energy harvesting materials, low-power neuromorphic computing, smart textiles and self-powered patches for healthcare. More information can be found on the group website: http://hla.chem.ox.ac.uk/.
Candidates with a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree in Chemistry are encouraged to apply. The candidate is expected to have a strong commitment to research, synthetic experience, and should have demonstrated the ability to independently learn new skills.
