Industrial application of CO2-philic macroRAFT for polymerisation in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2)

In conjunction with the European Doctoral Programme on Sustainable Industrial Chemistry (SINCHEM), we are offering an exciting PhD opportunity working on RAFT mediated polymerisations in scCO2. The successful candidate will split their time between the Universities of Nottingham and Lyon, as well as having the oppurtunity to test their products with their industrial partner.

Click the link in the title to find a more detailed description, or click here to be taken to the application page for the project. Applications close at midnight (CET) on the 20th January.


Other opportunities

The Howdle group is currently looking for new PhD applications for the next academic year, if you think you may be interested in working here then please submit an academic CV to Steve by email.
