A fully-funded 4-year PhD scholarship in Physics at the University of Bristol
As the PhD student on this project, you would carry out your own programme of original academic research using fundamental optical experiments to track nanometre-sized particles. You would develop the real-time physical characterization of important properties, for example the refractive index. You would be registered at the University of Bristol and join the research group of Dr. Henkjan Gersen (the Primary Supervisor).
This is truly cutting-edge project with very significant and immediate impact in academic research leading to high quality publications, and with important applications in medicine and biology, food, novel materials, and environmental sciences.
The project is a unique collaboration between Physics at the University of Bristol (www.bristol.ac.uk/physics), the National Physical Laboratory (www.npl.co.uk), and the leading instrumentation company, Malvern Panalytical (www.panalytical.com), with all the opportunities this presents for networking and career development. The successful student would spend time working with the co-Supervisors at each of the partner organisations.
You would be a member of the Physics Graduate School of 200-plus research students from a wide range of countries and backgrounds, with free access to training courses and professional development programmes. You would also be a member of the Postgraduate Institute for Measurement Science (PGI) at the National Physical Laboratory.
