The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment.
  Creating an Analysis Toolbox for Ultrafast 2D-IR Spectroscopy
  Prof N Hunt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a cross-disciplinary PhD project that aims to develop new data analysis methods for use with ultrafast 2D-IR spectroscopy.
  Dyes and Liquid Crystals: Molecular Designs for Guest-Host Applications
  Dr J N Moore, Dr S Cowling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A variety of devices for colour and monochrome displays can be obtained by incorporating a dye as a guest in a liquid crystalline (LC) host, providing a flexible route to light-scattering devices that can operate in strong ambient light, including outdoors.
  Extending the use of time-resolved electron diffraction to perform pump-probe experiments for molecular species
  Dr D A Wann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Wann group has a time-resolved electron diffraction apparatus in York capable of time resolution of around 1 ps. We also use the Stanford ultrafast election diffraction set-up for 100 fs time resolution experiments.
  Hyperpolarisation using liquid-state Overhauser Dynamic Nuclear Polarisation
  Dr M E Halse
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique with routine applications throughout the chemical and physical sciences.
  Magnetic Shielding Studies of Chemical Bonding and Aromaticity in Fullerenes and Nanotubes
  Dr P B Karadakov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Nanotubes and fullerenes are amongst the most promising new materials, and insights in the nature of bonding and the levels of aromaticity in their lowest singlet and triplet electronic states can be used to guide the search for molecular systems of this type with tuneable properties.
  Observing Nucleic Acid Aptamer Binding with Ultrafast 2D-IR Spectroscopy
  Prof N Hunt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will be a collaboration with Prof Glenn Burley (University of Strathclyde). Background. The strong and specific binding of small molecules and proteins to DNA has relevance across many areas, from fundamental biophysics, through chemical biology to nanotechnology.
  Obtaining a better understanding of the identity of agrichemical photoproducts
  Dr C E Dessent
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Agrichemicals are widely used to to protect crops from pests and enhance crop yields, but represent an important class of potential environmental contaminants.
  Photochemical Pathways of Photoinitiators: a Study for Inkjet Applications and Beyond
