Duration: 42 months
Starting date: 1st October, 2011
Department of Chemistry, University of Leicester.
Applicants are invited for a 42-months postgraduate studentship fully funded by the UK EPSRC. This is to join in a world-leading research programme in Nanoscience. The scope of the project will include the synthesis of core-shell and core-multiple shell nanoparticles, and their characterization using state-of-the-art microscope and synchrotron measurement.
Applicants must be motivated and wish to commit to the research programme. You should also have an honored degree at 2.1 or 1st class in the field of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science or Nanoscience. The studentship will cover the annual stipend at standard rate and the tuition fee at the UK/EU rate.
You will be supervised by Dr Shengfu Yang (Chemistry) and Prof. Chris Binns (Physics). However, the research team will include other academic staff including Prof. Andy Ellis (Chemistry) and Dr. Klaus von Haeften (Physics). During the full period of the research project, you will be working with a postdoctoral research associate, Dr. Adrian Boatwright.
If you are interested, please contact Dr. S Yang (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly to arrange an appointment.
