A fully funded 3-year PhD studentship is now available for application at
the Department of Chemistry, University of Leicester, UK.
You are invited to join in an internationally leading research group of
Nanochemistry. Our research is based on superfluid helium droplets, the
unique low-temperature, perturbation-free nano-reactors, to which
molecules/atoms can be added and then aggregate into nanoparticles and/or
nanowires. Unlike any conventional techniques, with helium droplets we
have a very high degree of control over the growth of nanomaterials, and
can fabricate novel materials with almost unlimited combination of
materials. The potential applications will cover biomedical science, data
storage, energy-efficient technologies and nanophotonics. In the past
years we have received intensive support from the EPSRC, the Leverhulme
Trust and the Royal Society, with a total of nearly £2M.
Please be aware that the studentship is available for UK/EU nationals
ONLY. To apply please send your CV asap to Dr Shengfu Yang: email@example.com.
If you need any further information and/or wish to discuss in details,
please also contact Dr Yang directly.
