We have a PDRA position available to start before Feb 2022 to work on developing new catalysis based methods – see the advert here: https://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/CJH948/research-fellow-in-synthetic-organic-chemistry
Informal enquiries to learn more about the position are welcomed and can be sent to Paul (see UoB website for email address), but formal applications must be made through the University application portal (as in the advert). All such applications will be reviewed and so please do not also send your formal application package directly to Paul by email.
We are delighted to welcome new members to the team, with Bethan Greene joining us for PhD studies, and Clare Rabbitt, Nick Gocher and Alice Oram joining for their MSci projects! See https://syncatdavies.com/group-members
We are delighted to welcome Dr Ivy Ghosh to our artificial metalloenzymes team, working on a project funded by The Leverhulme Trust in collaboration with Dr Anna Peacock. Ivy’s biography is on our members page. Ivy joins us from Prof. Tapan Kanti Paine’s group in Kolkata bringing her expertise in cytochrome P450 and bioinspired catalysis.
Congratulations to Sifan and the rest of the team from SUSTech and Northern University. Our paper on titled A Radical-Initiated Fragmentary Rearrangement Cascade of Ene-Ynamides to [1,2]-Annulated Indoles via Site-Selective Cyclization has been published in Org. Lett.
We’re sorry to see Prakash leave us after two eventful years, and wish him the best for his new position at Sygnature Discovery.
Some of Prakash’s work on alkynyl thioether chemistry has been published here, with more to follow in due course.
Congratulations to Peter and Prakash whose work showing the use of alkynyl thioethers with isoxazole-type nitrenoids has been published in ACS Catalysis. This work is in collaboration with Eli Lilly and Dr Jeff Richardson.
Congratulations to Pam, whose work on Gold-catalysed cycloisomerisation of ynamides to access 2,2-disubstituted tetrahydrothiophene motifs has just been accepted into Synlett
We are looking to appoint a new member of the artificial metalloenzymes team, focusing more on the structural peptide and bioinorganic aspects, working with Dr Anna Peacock’s group here in Birmingham. Details are in the advert – do get in touch with any questions.
A belated welcome to Richard who joined the artificial metalloenzymes team in January. We’re delighted to have him on board, bringing his expertise in organometallic chemistry and catalysis through carbohydrate chemistry and organic cages. See here for more details.
