Fully funded PhD position (UK/EU candidates only) at the University of Leicester

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

- 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,

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(a)le.ac.uk) with the
following attached:

- A cover letter stating the motivation for applying to the position and
the reason/specific qualities of the candidates why they should be
considered 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
