We have an open PhD position in advanced single molecule spectroscopy in the Hedley Single Molecule Lab at the University of Glasgow. This PhD will focus on themes alongside exciting new funded grants that we have recently secured researching the nanoscale motion of energy and quantum coherences of excited states in organic semiconductor materials. Using a microscope to measure light emitted from individual molecules one at a time, you will contribute to a growing team that aims to understand how excited states form, move, and interact in molecules used in organic light emitting diodes, photovoltaics, and organic lasers. This will be achieved by exploiting the photon statistics – how photons are distributed in time – of light emission from molecules to extract valuable new information, enhancing the development of new techniques made in our recent Nature Communications paper (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-021-21474-z). This PhD will require frequent work with lasers, optical setups, photophysical measurements, sample preparation, microscopy measurements and extensive data analysis. A 1st or 2:1 or equivalent undergraduate degree in physics, chemical physics, chemistry, or related discipline is required. A 2-page C.V. and cover letter should be sent to [Email Address Removed] along with following the “How To Apply” guidance below (please do both).
