A research associate is sought for a project, led by Professor Ian Fairlamb in the Department of Chemistry, co-funded by the EPSRC UK Catalysis hub and GlaxoSmithKline under the Catalysis for the Circular Economy & Sustainable Manufacturing theme.
The project aims to deliver a versatile platform to enable a large number of pharma-relevant reaction variables to be screened in a short period of time, allowing robustness and sensitivities in metal-catalyzed reactions to be better understood across a broad space. This will allow challenges encountered during scale-up in process chemistry to be efficiently addressed.
The project team comprises academic partners at York, Durham and Leeds and an industrial partner, GlaxosmithKline. Complementary expertise spans a range of areas from applied synthetic chemistry, catalyst design and mechanistic understanding, automation, reaction screening and rich data analysis of reaction outcomes.
The Department of Chemistry is one of the largest and most successful departments at York and we are renowned internationally for our research. We strive to provide a working environment that allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We are proud of our Athena SWAN Gold Award.
Main duties include:
