PhD Studentship/Marie Sklodowska-Curie ESR Fellowship: Supramolecular Chemistry

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 36 months.

We invite applications for a 3-year Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher (MSC-ESR) Fellowship to start in April or October 2015 to work with Professor Christopher Hunter on a project which will use synthetic supramolecular systems to undertake a quantitative investigation of the relationship between chemical structure and cooperativity. Multivalency is one of Nature's governing principles for achieving strong and selective molecular recognition; the project will form part of a EC Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN (MULTI-APP) focusing on the fundamentals and application of multivalency and cooperativity in biology, chemistry, materials and nanotechnology. This is a collaborative, international and multi-disciplinary research network involving laboratories in Padova, Oxford, Berlin, Münster, Twente and Eindhoven, as well as industrial partners ranging in scale from a small spin-off to a large multinational.

Further information about research in the Hunter group is available at

Applicants must satisfy the EC's eligibility requirements for MSC-ESR Fellowships, and must not have resided in the UK for more than 12 months in the last 3 years. They should have (or expect to obtain) the equivalent of a UK first class honours degree (and preferably a Masters degree) in a relevant scientific discipline. The Fellowship is offered in conjunction with a PhD position, subject to the Fellow satisfying the university's admissions requirements for the PhD study. The Fellowship will provide a salary and will cover tuition fees.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, detailed academic transcripts and the contact details for at least two academic referees, and should be sent by email to Professor Hunter (, to whom any informal enquiries can be addressed.

Please quote reference MA04796 on your application and in any correspondence about this vacancy.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
