Research Assistant or Research Fellow

Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group, Department of Chemistry, Warwick
University UK a href="" target="_blank">>

An exciting opportunity is available to join a new EPSRC-funded project
which involves the development of new high resolution scanned probe
microscopy (SPM) techniques, based on electrochemical and electrical
principles in condensed phases, to investigate the fundamental
electrochemistry of novel carbon materials (nanotubes and graphene).

You will be involved in the development and application of a variety of
SPM techniques for ultra-high resolution electrochemical imaging of
electrode surfaces in solution. In particular, combined scanning
electrochemical microscopy - scanning tunnelling microscopy (SECM-STM),
combined SECM - atomic force microscopy (SECM-AFM) and new variants of
the recently introduced scanning nanocapillary contact method (SNCM)
will be employed. The primary application area is in understanding and
characterising the sites of electron transfer for a wide range of
electrochemical processes at sp2 carbon materials such as single walled
carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and graphene.

You will be a highly motivated person with extensive SPM experience in
electrical-based SPM, e.g. STM, electrical modes of AFM and/or scanning
ion conductance microscopy (SICM). Experience in SPM technique
development or other instrument development would be advantageous, as
would knowledge of the preparation of graphene and SWNTs by either
mechanical exfoliation (in the case of graphene) or chemical vapour
deposition. A good knowledge of programming languages such as LabVIEW
and COMSOL Multiphysics, or the ability to pick up these skills quickly
would also be beneficial. We expect that the proposed programme will be
very high impact and we are seeking an enthusiastic and committed person
to join our interdisciplinary and highly regarded team.

Funding is available for up to three years

An application form must be completed if you wish to be considered for
this post.

Please quote job vacancy reference number 70333-040.

The closing date/time for applications is midnight (British time) at the
end of Monday 17 May 2010

wish to work on metal nanoparticles and plant defense and metabolism

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
