Supramolecular approaches to engineering signalling networks in artificial cells

Applications are invited for a DPhil studentship in synthetic supramolecular chemistry available from October 2021, to work under the supervision of Prof. Matthew Langton in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford. The studentship is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

Research in the Langton group is focussed primarily on synthetic supramolecular chemistry and coordination chemistry (see the group website for further information and recent publications). Current research goals include developing stimuli-responsive supramolecular systems (such as catalysts, ion transporters and molecular machines) that function in lipid bilayer membranes.

The advertised project aims to design and synthesise supramolecular systems to control chemical reactivity and molecular signalling networks in artificial cells.

The studentship will cover course fees at a Home rate and provide a stipend of no less than the standard UK Research Council rate, currently set at £15,285 per year, for 3 years.

Candidates with a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree in Chemistry or a closely related subject are encouraged to apply. Prior research experience (such as a Masters research project or equivalent) in a synthetic organic/inorganic chemistry laboratory is desirable. The successful applicant will be based in the state-of-the-art Chemical Research Laboratory, and be part of the Inorganic Chemistry sub-department. 

Candidates should submit a formal application for DPhil in Inorganic Chemistry via Oxford online application system: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/applying-to-oxford , quoting MJL/LT/2021.

Application deadline: 12.00 noon UK time on Friday 22nd January 2021

Queries relating to the application and admission process should be directed to: graduate.admissions@chem.ox.ac.uk ; tel.: +44 (0) 1865 272569.

For informal enquiries email matthew.langton@chem.ox.ac.uk

The Department of Chemistry holds the Athena SWAN Silver Award.
