Swansea University is seeking a top-class candidate to undertake a PhD studentship in the field of advanced nano-materials for catalysis. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work interdisciplinary and dynamic research environment in collaboration with Johnson Matthey, the leading catalyst manufacturer in the UK. The project will have the scope to work on synthesis as well as developing macro and nanoscale spectroscopic methods including micro-Raman and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy with the aim of understanding properties at nanoscale. You will be based at the Department of Chemistry, and work in a dynamic collaborative environment with the Department of Physics, international collaborators such as Texas A&M and industry partners. Such research will enable a developing future variety of chemical processes that are deemed difficult or impossible with the current technologies.
Swansea University strongly encourages research collaboration worldwide and there may be opportunities for short term secondment abroad. This opportunity also provides a substantial tax-free stipend equivalent to many graduate jobs.
