Athena SWAN

 
Department of Chemistry
Section: Organic Chemistry
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Organic Chemistry  (Professor Stephen Fletcher)
Grade 7: £30,738 - £37,768 p.a

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Organic Chemistry to work under the supervision of Professor Stephen Fletcher on a research project funded by ERC for a fixed-term period of 2 years.

The project involves the study of autocatalytic and or/prebiotically relevant reactions.This project, funded by the European Research Council, aims to understand how self-replicating systems relevant to the origins of life might emerge from simple chemical mixtures. The researcher will experimentally examine how small molecules can form organized chemical reaction networks capable of function. The successful candidate will synthesize starting materials, perform detailed mechanistic studies by following reactions in time, and study reaction products using a variety of analytical techniques. Strong synthetic and analytical skills are required and the candidate must have a flair for organic reaction mechanisms.

Find out more about the Fletcher research group at: http://research.chem.ox.ac.uk/stephen-fletcher.aspx/.

Duties will include managing own academic research and administrative activities and contributing ideas for new research projects.

You should have a PhD in Chemistry or a relevant subject area, or have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the appointment.

You should have expertise in complex molecule synthesis, reaction mechanisms, systems chemistry or prebiotic chemistry.

The post will be based in the Chemistry Research Laboratory, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TA.

Department of Chemistry
Section: Organic Chemistry
Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher  (Professor Veronique Gouverneur)
Salary from: £27,194.09 p.a.

A fellowship position is available for a period of 36 months, tenable at Oxford University, on a project entitled “Copper-catalyzed fluorination of [18 F]labeled (hetero)arenes from [18 F]fluoride”. The successful candidate will be employed by the University on a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN), and will be expected to conduct complex experiments and scientific analysis, and also contribute to the development of new techniques and reporting of results.

The EC funding for this position provides for a salary starting from £27,194.09 p.a. Actual salary will depend on employer deductions, personal circumstances and the exchange rate to be notified by the EC, which includes an annual living allowance and a mobility allowance (to cover the expenses associated with working in a different country). Under the terms of the EC funding, which aim to promote mobility within the research community, to be eligible for the post the candidate must not have been resident in the UK for more than a total of 12 months in the past three years. There is no restriction on nationality. Persons who have obtained a doctorate or have more than 4 years full time research experience are ineligible. The expected start date is October 2016.

Candidates must possess a good degree in a relevant subject and should have experience in synthetic organic chemistry and familiarity with the standard laboratory analytical and spectroscopic techniques used in organic synthesis. They should be willing to learn radiochemistry, new techniques and apply them in an interdisciplinary research environment, continuously improving both their technical and theoretical knowledge. Good verbal and written communication skills in English are required.
