PhD position available

We are offering a fully funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate beginning in September 2023.

The project’s goal is to discover and develop new sustainable radical reactions that use visible light and non-toxic earth abundant transition metals. The student will be exposed to a variety of organic chemistry techniques, such as shlenck techniques, glove-box techniques, and the most recent purification/analysis techniques, as well as ample opportunities to learn about ligand design, organometallic chemistry, organic synthesis, photochemistry, and catalysis.

Anyone interested in PhD and postdoctoral are encouraged to directly contact Dr. Kumar. All the funded position will be advertised both on UCL Chemistry Department website and on this page.

Please contact us via email if you already have your own funding and would like to join the group. Similarly, if you are interested in applying for funding to come and work with us, please send your CV and a covering letter explaining why you are interested in our research; we will be happy to help you find appropriate funding.
