Job description

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in the research group of Dr Beatrice Collins in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol. The position is funded by the Royal Society and is available from the 1 st July 2019, with funding for 18 months.


The Collins group is working on a research programme focused on the development of artificial molecular machines that exhibit autonomous chemically-fuelled directional motion at the molecular level. This research programme involves exploring a new approach to such molecular behaviour, which will take the power and sophistication of modern synthetic chemistry, in particular transition metal-based reactivity platforms, and apply it to the fascinating challenges posed by complex molecular systems. Funded through the Royal Society, the main responsibility of the research associate will be the design and synthesis of autonomous chemically-fuelled biaryl rotary molecular motors.


We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic researcher, with excellent organizational and communication skills. The successful candidate will hold (or be working towards) a PhD in organic chemistry. While previous experience within in the field of artificial molecular machines is not required, experience in modern synthetic chemistry, including the design and execution of multi-step syntheses is essential.
