Research Associate (fixed-term)

University of Bath - Chemistry

Location: Bath
Salary: From £37,099 rising to £44,263 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 4th June 2024
Closes: 17th June 2024
Job Ref: ED11772

About the role

We have an exciting opportunity to work on new synthetic methodology for the synthesis of valuable amine-containing building blocks using photo redox catalysis in continuous flow. 

You will be working as part of a team under the supervision of Dr Alex Cresswell to develop flow-based methods for the synthesis and functionalisation of simple, readily available amine starting materials. 

We will apply these new processes to the synthesis of pharmaceutically-relevant targets and will gain fundamental understanding of the systems through mechanistic analysis.

As a Research Associate, you will help lead the research of a motivated team of chemists. 

You will gain experience of the development and application of new catalytic methods. 

You will perform both individual and collaborative research projects and work with the team to develop new ideas. 

You will write up research results for publication in scientific journals and will have the opportunity to disseminate the work through presentations at internal and external seminars and conferences.

As a member of Research Staff at the University of Bath, you will be encouraged to take up a minimum of 10 days professional development pro rata per year.

About us

The Cresswell group currently comprises 11 PhD students and a PDRA. 

We are housed in the main Chemistry building in two modern and well-equipped labs. 

Our group has full access to the analytical and technical facilities offered at Bath, including NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, XRD analysis, and the EPSRC-funded Dynamic Reaction Monitoring (DReaM) facility (flow NMR).

About you

We are looking for a highly motivated individual to work within our research team. 

You must hold a Ph.D. in organic chemistry and should have practical experience in continuous flow chemistry and photo redox catalysis. 

You will be responsible for planning and performing your own research activities and will be expected to take an active role in supporting Ph.D. and undergraduate research students within the laboratory. 

You should have excellent interpersonal and communication skills to work as part of a team and discuss your work with a range of audiences. 

You should have experience of scientific writing and a breadth of background knowledge in organic synthesis and homogeneous catalysis.
