About the Project
The project will appeal to chemistry or physics graduates with interest in applying physical chemistry to biological problems. Applicants must hold, or expect to obtain, a first or upper second-class honours degree or UK equivalent in Chemistry or Physics from a recognised academic institution, be strongly motivated and ideally have some experience with spectroscopic methods.
We expect that the successful candidate will want to contribute to our department's teaching, for which payment will be made separately. The opportunity to contribute as a teaching assistant during the PhD programme can be an interesting and rewarding experience, which will help students develop skills which will be relevant when they look for future roles. Training and mentoring in teaching and learning in higher education will be provided, and the successful applicant will be expected to attend the Faculty’s Preparing to Teach (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/learningteaching/kli/prodev/prepteach.aspx) course should they undertake additional teaching duties. Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to complete the Teaching Recognition at King’s programme (TRaK - https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/learningteaching/kli/HEA-Recognition/HEA-Recognition-Programme.aspx) which is the King’s route to achieve Higher Education Academy (HEA) professional recognition (https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/).
Students interested in undertaking a PhD in this project should register their interest as soon as possible. Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Maria E. Sanz at [Email Address Removed].
