PhD Positions

Fully funded PhD position in physics/chemistry/nanoscience from October 2012

- High-throughput production of nanoclusters by condensation of atomic vapours on liquid jets -

A fully-funded PhD position (for UK/EU resident candidates only) under supervision of Klaus von Haeften is available in the Physics Department at the University of Leicester, UK. A revolutionary nanoparticle production method based on liquid jets in vacuum will be explored with the aim to understand size distribution, controlled oxidation of the nanoparticle surface and interaction with liquid/solid substrates. The following analytical facilities are available: photofluorescence, FTIR, Raman, XPS/UPS, Auger, Leed, AFM/STM.

Please apply online (http://www2.le.ac.uk/study/postgrad/how-to-apply/applyphd) following the guidelines provided by the University of Leicester. Please send in addition an email to Klaus von Haeften (kvh6@le.ac.uk) with the following attached:  

- A cover letter stating the motivation for applying to the position, your specific skills so that we get an idea why we should consider you for the job.

- a short CV stating your previous research activities/field of undergraduate study (i.e. surfaces science, spectroscopy etc)/(expected) final mark  

- Two references (email address and telephone number)

- If you apply from non-UK/non-EU countries please provide evidence that you hold additional funding to cover the difference between overseas tuition fees and home/EU tuition fees.

PhD start date: October 2012 earliest
application closing date: 15 August 2012

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
