Postdoctoral Research Associate in Chemistry
Department Of Chemistry
Grade 7 (£33,199)
A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to synthesise and evaluate the luminescence properties of molecular metal complexes, designed to display efficient emission in the near-infrared (NIR) region of the spectrum. The work will involve a significant amount of synthetic chemistry to prepare ligands and their platinum/palladium complexes, together with luminescence measurements, electrochemistry, and theoretical studies.
The project is interdisciplinary, involving close collaboration with physicists in Durham, and with synthetic and computational partners at nearby Northumbria University and Newcastle University, respectively. It forms part of an EPSRC-funded project, spanning the three institutions, that seeks to develop efficient NIR organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
The work will be supervised by Professor J. A. Gareth Williams (www.dur.ac.uk/chemistry/staff/profile/?id=205).
This is a 3 year fixed term contract, the latest possible start date is 1/3/19
