PhD Studentship: Perylene Diimide Dyes for Sensing & Bioimaging

University of Birmingham - School of Chemistry

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Birmingham
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 28th November 2023
Closes: 28th February 2024

This is a PhD position joint between the University of Birmingham (UK) and the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM – Berlin).

We are seeking candidates for a PhD research project in synthetic supramolecular chemistry, photophysics and optical sensing, to develop smart optical reporters for environmental sensing & bioimaging. The primary supervisor is Dr Timothy Barendt (University of Birmingham) and the secondary supervisor is Dr Ute Resch-Genger (Federal Institute for Materials Research & Testing - Berlin).

The project aim is to develop perylene diimides as optical reporters for environmental sensing and bioimaging. The candidate will develop novel dyes exhibiting switchable aggregation properties for detecting bioanalytically relevant targets. Furthermore, the supramolecular chemistry of perylene diimides will be exploited for sensing environmentally relevant pollutants. The researcher will develop skills in molecular synthesis, supramolecular chemistry and photophysics.

  • This is a PhD for 3.5 years (stipend and tuition fees covered), to be awarded by the University of Birmingham.
  • The candidate will work at both Birmingham and BAM in Berlin, joining the research teams of Barendt (https://tab-lab.org/) and Resch-Genger (https://tinyurl.com/2p887suw), respectively.
  • This position is open to students from Germany and the UK only. A Master’s level degree in Chemistry or a comparable degree is required.
  • To apply, please contact Tim Barendt (t.a.barendt@bham.ac.uk) or Ute Resch-Genger (ute.resch@bam.de). Also, please get in contact with us for more information.
  • Please apply as soon as possible, the position will be filled when we find a strong candidate.

Funding notes:

This is a fully funded PhD for 3.5 years (both stipend and tuition fees covered), to be awarded by the University of Birmingham.
