A PDRA post in synthetic chemistry from 01 September 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter, for a period of 12 months, to work in association with Dr John M Sanderson on solid phase synthetic approaches to lipids. The work is associated with an EPSRC-funded impact acceleration award in association with High Force Research, building on a recent EPSRC programme grant “Sculpting Dynamic Amphiphilic Structures” (EP/J017566/1). The programme grant has already succeeded in a proof of principle study for the solid-phase synthesis of phospholipids. We are now extending this proof of principle work by fully examining the scope of the existing method and expanding the range of lipids that can be prepared, with a view to generating sufficient data for IP protection and future collaborations, such as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership.
