Duration: 42 months
Starting date: 1st October, 2011
Department of Chemistry, University of Leicester.
Applicants are invited for a fully-funded 42-months postgraduate
studentship in the Department of Chemistry, University of Leicester. 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, their characterization using state-of-the-art
microscope and synchrotron measurement and application of novel core-shell
nanoparticles in photocatalysis.
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
Please also note that this post is available for UK/EU candidates ONLY.
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 also
be working with a postdoctoral research associate, Dr. Adrian Boatwright,
and other PhD students.
If you are interested, please contact Dr. S Yang (firstname.lastname@example.org
