About the Project
The project will also involve integrating the use of quantum chemical calculations and molecular dynamics simulations to aid the interpretation of the experimental data. Development of software packages to better analyse diffraction data may form part of the project, as might development of new sources of electrons that allow electron beams with better transverse coherence to be produced.
The student will join a vibrant research group. As well as working in Chemistry, some of the research will be performed in collaboration with the Department of Physics. There will also be opportunities to undertake research at the UK central facilities, the Rutherford Appleton Labs and Daresbury Labs, and to collaborate with overseas groups, particularly in USA, Germany, and New Zealand.
All Chemistry research students have access to our innovative Doctoral Training in Chemistry (iDTC): cohort-based training to support the development of scientific, transferable and employability skills: https://www.york.ac.uk/chemistry/postgraduate/idtc/
The Department of Chemistry holds an Athena SWAN Gold Award and is committed to supporting equality and diversity for all staff and students. The Department strives to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel: https://www.york.ac.uk/chemistry/ed/.
You should expect hold or expect to achieve the equivalent of at least a UK upper second class degree in Chemistry or a related subject. Please check the entry requirements for your country: https://www.york.ac.uk/study/international/your-country/
