We are looking for 2 highly motivated PhD candidates willing to work at the University of Birmingham in the interception of material science, chemistry, fundamental and applied electrochemistry. Ideally, the candidate should have a 2.1 of higher degree in chemistry, or a related discipline.
This project will investigate the (photo)electrochemical synthesis of basic bio-organic molecules from gas clathrates at sub-zero temperatures to provide evidence for the revolutionary hypothesis that chemical evolution occurred at sub-zero conditions. Both PhD candidates will be trained in (photo)electrochemistry of carbon-based molecules and nitrogen-based molecules and in different characterization techniques.
This Project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust. In 2021/2022 the maintenance grant for full-time students was £15,285 per annum.
The closing date for applications is 15th of October.
