Delighted to be posting about the freshly published Research Excellence Framework results in which the School of Chemistry @Bristol is ranked #1 in the UK for research. A great effort from all staff, researchers and technicians that contribute to the internationally recognised outputs from the work conducted within this building.
Congratulations to all presenting their work (both visually and orally) at this year’s spring MRS meeting and exhibit in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
Basiram taking a small break from his PhD studies to show England the true might of an Indian cricketer.
Interested in multidisciplinary MRes project relating to soft robotics, smart structures, polymer chemistry and healthcare? Announcing an exciting opportunity linked to emPOWER Transformative Healthcare Technologies – a UKRI-EPSRC funded research programme focusing on in-body artificial muscles for physical augmentation, function restoration, patient empowerment & future healthcare.
#RSCPoster is a global Twitter poster conference taking place entirely online over the course of a day. The event aims to bring together the global chemistry community allowing for interaction with chemists and researchers at various career stages. This year (2022), the Faul Group presents two posters from both Safa and Ulzhalgas, highlighting their work within the functional porous polymer field (see below).
The Newton International Fellowship scheme is now accepting applications. These fellowships are for non-UK scientists who are at an early stage of their research career and wish to conduct research in the UK.
If you are interested in applying for such fellowship with the support of Prof Charl Faul, please contact him before the deadline (16 March 2022).
Some delayed viva success celebrations over brunch. Congratulations to (from left to right) Dr Henry E. Symons, Dr Esther J. Townsend, Dr Veronica Del Angel Hernandez & Dr Christian Romero who all successfully passed their PhD vivas at various stages during the pandemic.
The University of Bristol is offering 100 new fully funded postgraduate research scholarships for the 2022/23 academic year; including (but not limited to) research scholarship opportunities in both the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Engineering.

Delighted to share a new publication in Journal of Materials Chemistry C entitled Thionated PDI supramolecular polymers: controlling aggregation mechanisms, morphology and function discussing the effects on self-assembly of heteroatom substitution in supramolecular polymer systems.
Many congratulations to Dr Veronica Del Angel Hernandez who passed her PhD viva last week. We wish her continued success in her postdoctoral research associate position within the Cooper Group at the University of Liverpool.
Further celebrations are in order for group members Neha Yadav and Basiram Narzary. Both are both recipients of prizes at last week’s GWPore conference for contributing with a talk on polymer formation using cyclic carbonates from CO2 and a poster discussing CO2 capture and conversion using microporous materials (see below), respectively.
