PhD Studentship Conjugated Microporous Polymers 2013



Ref: PHD-CONCHEM

£13,590 pa Stipend

A Ph.D. studentship is available in the research group of Professor Andrew Cooper in the Chemistry Department, University of Liverpool to commence in October 2013. Porous materials are important in a variety of applications such as molecular separations, catalysis, and energy storage. Our group has developed a new method for preparing porous materials with extended conjugation (Angew. Chem., Int. Ed., 2007, 46, 8574; J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2008, 130 7710; Angew. Chem., Int. Ed., 2011, 50, 996). The project will involve aspects of organic synthesis, polymer synthesis and materials characterization. The successful applicant will join a large and diverse research group (see www.liv.ac.uk/chemistry/res/coopergroup/) and will collaborate with other members of the team, for example with researchers in the area of molecular modeling and ‘high throughput’ synthesis. The project will also exploit state-of-the-art robotic synthesis infrastructure available in the Centre for Materials Discovery (www.liv.ac.uk/materials-discovery). Applicants should hold a Masters level degree in Chemistry, or equivalent, and project experience in organic chemistry or polymer chemistry would be an advantage but is not a prerequisite.
