Whorrod Research Fellowships in Sustainable Chemical Technologies, UK

Fellowship for those students who have strong theoretical and computational skills and should have the equivalent of a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree in Physics or a closely related discipline, UK

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) is a joint initiative of the Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the University of Bath, UK which incorporates the EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) in Sustainable Chemical Technologies (SCT).

The CSCT brings together researchers with expertise across a wide spectrum of applied chemical sciences and establishes the infrastructure for interdisciplinary collaborative research with a common theme of sustainability.

We are seeking exceptionally motivated and qualified scientists and engineers as candidates for five-year Whorrod Fellowships in SCT to build independent research careers and become leaders in their chosen field.

Those appointed are expected to be strong candidates for permanent academic posts at the end of their fellowships.

The successful applicants will have postdoctoral experience in any area of sustainable chemical technologies and will be expected to build independent research broadly within the five themes of the CSCT :

  • Renewable Resources
  • Clean Energy
  • Clean Processes
  • Pharmaceutical and Well-being
  • Life Cycle Impact Reduction

Both Fellows will be expected to have significant interactions across the Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, as well as more broadly in the University, as appropriate.

The posts are funded by a recent endowment to the CSCT from Roger and Sue Whorrod.

In addition to salaries, the endowment will provide generous research costs. Fellows will be closely involved in supervision and mentoring of DTC students.

Application deadline : 31st October 2010.
