Applications are invited to work on a new research programme on Nanoscience funded by the UK EPSRC. The successful applicant will focus on the synthesis and characterization of core-shell and/or core-multiple shell nanoparticles, which are to be fabricated using superfluid helium droplets. The successful candidate is expected to participate the initial design and construction of experimental apparatus, routinely run the experiments to synthesize core-shell nanoparticles and investigate the properties of the nanoparticles using microscopy (STM and TEM) and synchrotron measurement. He/she will also participate in supervision of Postgraduate and/or Master Students.

A highly talented and motivated researcher with previous experience in relevant fields is very desirable. Applicants must hold a PhD degree in the related fields such as physics, chemistry, material science or nanoscience, and have a good publication record. Special experience in instrumentation, molecular beam, growth of nanoparticles, helium droplets, mass spectrometry, UHV system, microscopy and other characterization techniques for nanoparticles are desirable, but not essential.

General information on the group's research interests can be found at the following: http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/chemistry/research/spectroscopy-and-dynamics.

Closing date for applications is midnight 15 October 2010.
