Closing Date Monday, 25th May 2020
We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic PhD student in the School of Chemistry at the University of Nottingham, within the research groups of Professors Neil Champness and Mike George, and at the University of Adelaide, working with Professors Chris Sumby and Christian Doonan. The selected candidate will be part of the International Doctoral Training Partnership which allows students to work towards their doctorate with both the University of Nottingham and the University of Adelaide (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/global/partnerships/partnership-pages/adelaidephd.aspx).
The successful candidate will work as part of a collaborative research programme entitled “Time-resolved Spectroscopy Studies of Metal-Organic Frameworks”. The projects constitute part of a programme of research using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as supports for reaction processes. The project will involve both synthesis and detailed spectroscopic studies. In particular they will investigate the synthesis of novel MOFs which are capable of binding metal-complexes within, and supported by, the framework structure. Reactions at the supported complexes will be investigated, primarily using time-resolved spectroscopy studies and single crystal X-ray diffraction, to provide insight into the pathways of reaction processes.
Funding notes: The studentship is fully-funded for 42 months. Stipend at the RCUK rate (currently £15,009 per annum) and tuition fees will be paid at the UK/EU rate. International students must pay the difference between UK/EU and international fees. If English is not the candidate’s first language, they must provide evidence before the beginning of the studentship that they meet the University minimum English Language requirements (IELTS 6.0 with at least 5.5 in each element).
Deadline: review of applications will start on Monday 2nd March, 2020, and the position will be filled as soon as a suitable person has been found; hence you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Neil R. Champness, Email: Neil.Champness@Nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
