In this project, which has arisen as a consequence of the award of a 3 year EPSRC project grant to Prof Andrew Wilson and Dr Andrew Burnett, we will exploit recently developed hydrogen-bonded self-sorting systems, to introduce a conceptually transformative contribution to synthetic chemistry: the development of self-sorting networks which carry out synthesis and by virtue of their modularity can readily be (re)configured to result in different synthetic outcomes. Key underpinning developments needed to achieve these goals will include the development of an expanded self-sorting toolkit and advanced analytical methods to characterize mixtures of supramolecular complexes. You will also contribute to a further collaborative research project on the supramolecular chemistry of polymer electrolytes.
You will have a PhD in chemistry, or a closely aligned discipline, together with a track record of synthetic supramolecular chemistry and experience in the use of modern spectroscopic methods. You will also have excellent communication skills and the ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines.
