Martin Heeney is a Professor of Organic Materials  in the department of chemistry at Imperial College. His research concentrates upon the design, synthesis and characterisation of organic semiconductor materials for a range of optoelectronic applications, including field effect transistors, photovoltaic devices, light emitting diodes and sensors. His research is highly multi-disciplinary and collaborative covering aspects of organic, polymer and materials chemistry with a central theme of establishing relationships between molecular design, synthetic methodology, processing and performance.


Applications from potential PhD candidates are welcome.
