Applications to join our group are ALWAYS welcome from outstanding and enthusiastic PhD and postdoctoral candidates. Well-paid stipends are often available, funded by industry or other outside bodies (e.g. the EU and the UK research councils). The main discipline is Synthetic Organic Chemistry, but we have strong interests in other areas (Coordination Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Polymer Synthesis, Molecular Recogniton etc). Members of the group will certainly be exposed to a vast range of science, from pharmaceutical chemistry (drug delivery systems, pro-drugs, membrane transport) to materials ('smart' materials, 'molecular machinery' and novel polymer architectures).
To apply, please email Prof. Leigh (David.Leigh@manchester.ac.uk) directly with a CV and the names and addresses of two referees. We are particularly keen to attract applications for both PhD and post-doc positions from non-UK European Union nationals as a consequence of our international academic and industrial collaborations and our participation in various EU Networks.
