Postdoc positions

Three postdoctoral positions available on studying porphyrin assemblies by (a) EPR, (b) ultrafast photophysics and (c) magneto-optical spectroscopy


University of Oxford Additional synthetic chemistry expertise is available through Oxford Synthesis Connections

Our Group does research in the areas of molecular materials synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, molecular recognition, polymers and dyes. Many of our projects are centred around the synthesis and subsequent physical investigation of porphyrins, rotaxanes and conjugated polymers. All work is directed towards the design and creation of new molecular materials with useful optical, electronic or biomedical properties. We believe that a better understanding of the relationship between molecular structure, molecular function and macroscopic properties will give us the ability to build functional materials on the molecular scale.
