UK: PhD Positions in Materials Chemistry at University of Liverpool
Stipend: £13,726 pa
Closing date: 31 July 2014
Description: PhD positions are available in the research group of Professor M.J. Rosseinsky FRS (http://www.liv.ac.uk/chemistry/staff/matthew-rosseinsky/). Illustrative project areas are given below:
New porous materials for catalysis
This involves the synthesis of new crystalline porous materials and the designed development of new catalysts by combining them with active molecular and biological catalysts.
New transition metal oxides
The synthesis of new materials, characterization of their structures by X-ray and neutron diffraction, and evaluation of their electronic, magnetic and ferroelectric properties.
New materials for solar absorption
Synthesis of lead-free absorbing materials for next-generation solar cells.
The Graduate Teaching Assistantship positions (GTA) are open to UK/EU citizens only due to funding. EU students who have not been resident in the UK for the last three years proceeding the start of their studentship are only eligible for a fees-only award. International students are not eligible for any funding through a GTA. Candidates will have at least an upper second class honours degree in chemistry, physics, or materials science. All the projects take place in a large interdisciplinary group with extensive international collaborations and involve close interaction between synthesis, measurement and computation.
