There are two fully-funded PhD opportunity available in the Byrne Research Group, starting in University College Dublin, from January 2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter). I would appreciate if you would circulate this advertisement to anyone who might be interested in these opportunities, including MSc or BSc alumni. As leaders of COST actions in the area of carbohydrate research, I would be particularly grateful if you could distribute to anyone in your European network who might know of potential high-quality candidates.

I am looking for enthusiastic researchers to take the lead on the synthetic chemistry required for a modular antimicrobial drug-discovery project. The  which will centre around supramolecular chemistry, with one student developing carbohydrate-derivatives and the other focussing on metal coordination complexes. The research will involve plenty of interdisciplinary training, opportunities to travel for research secondments and conferences. The successful candidate will join a growing research team in UCD Dublin, Ireland. Full detail about the application process are included in the attached document, or at
