UCL Department / Division
(inclusive of London allowance)
£34,056 - £41,163 per annum
Duties and Responsibilities
A position is available in Dr Tung Chun Lee’s research group in the Institute for Materials Discovery at the Bloomsbury Campus, University College London. The successful candidate will work in the fields of reaction mechanism, supramolecular chemistry and mass spectrometry. Using a novel mass spectrometry approach, this project aims to reveal fundamental insights of how molecules react inside a molecular container that can lead to more efficient chemical processes and beyond.
The post-holder will design and synthesise a series of reactive molecules using standard techniques of organic synthesis. Reactivity investigation of encapsulated molecules will be performed mainly by advanced mass spectrometry (MS), including collision-induced dissociation and ion-mobility MS. The post-holder will also analyse the measurement data and deduce reaction mechanisms. Experimental work on the project will be complemented by computational work performed by collaborators.
This position is funded by the Leverhulme Trust for 24 months initially.
The successful candidate will have a PhD degree in Chemistry or a relevant subject area (or be about to be awarded a PhD). Experience in organic synthesis, chemical kinetics and mass spectrometry is essential. Expertise in supramolecular chemistry and molecular modelling is also desirable. In addition, the appointee will give evidence of having successfully published in prestigious journals and conferences.
Please note, appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6 (salary £29,809 to £31,432 per annum, including London Allowance of £2,980 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
