High-resolution imaging and spectroscopic characterisation of physical and chemical interactions at bio-interfaces

  • Full or part time
    Prof R Raval
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

This position will remain open until filled, so we recommend you apply as soon as possible.

A fully funded PhD studentship is available in the field of bio-physics, biomaterials, and soft-matter, with emphasis on high-resolution imaging and spectroscopic probing of interactions at surfaces and interfaces of biological interest. The successful candidate will be based in the Surface Science Research Centre at the University of Liverpool, within a dynamic, multidisciplinary research environment.
The research project will use state-of-the-art characterisation tools of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Raman Microscopy to probe the physical interactions between functional surfaces and model biological systems, from single-biomolecules to live cells.

Candidates must have (or about to obtain) a good master degree or first degree in Physics, Bio-physics or Chemistry, with strong interest on studying the physical processes underpinning complex biological systems.

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis until the suitable candidate is appointed; therefore, we encourage applications from qualified candidates as soon as possible.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Professor Raval’s PA, Lesley-Anne Corbidge ()

Funding Notes

The award is primarily available to EU students only and will pay full tuition fees and a maintenance grant for 3.5 years (£14,553 pa in 2017/18).

Non-EU nationals are not eligible for this position and applications from non-EU candidates will not be considered unless you have your own funding.
