  • Nov 22: Join the group!

    We are currently recruiting for:

    1. A post-doctoral researcher in synthetic supramolecular chemistry (3 years)
    To work on an EPSRC-funded project on organic electronics. The full advert is here.

    2. A PhD student (fully funded)
    To work on a project on the supramolecular chemistry of organic dye molecules. The full advert is here.

    Please get in touch with Tim for more information on both positions.

  • October 2022: New Students

    We welcome our new PhD students Jamie and Tom, our new MSci student Rob, and Emily who returns to the TAB lab as an MSci student after doing a summer project with us!

  • June 2022: New Paper

    “The Pink Box”- a new chiral macrocycle exhibiting switchable aromatic stacking and interesting chiroptical properties!

  • January 2022: New fully funded PhD position

    We have a new PhD position (fully funded) for a project on supramolecular dyes for sensing in biology and the environment.
    The research will be conducted at both the University of Birmingham (UK) and Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (in Berlin, Germany), under the joint supervision of Dr Timothy Barendt and Dr. Ute Resch-Genger, respectively.
