Welcome to the webpage for the research group under the supervision of Dr. Robert Phipps, at the University of Cambridge. We are interested in developing new methodology in synthetic organic chemistry, to expedite the assembly of molecules and increase efficiency in synthesis.
Please follow the links above to find out more about the research underway, group members and opportunities.
To find out more about PhD opportunities starting in October 2018, please get in touch.
The group has funded PhD studentships available.
We have the departmental graduate student open day on Friday 20th October 2017: see HERE for more details. I look forward to meeting with potential students during this day. If you want to pre-arrange a time for a chat, please email me directly.
