This project is in collaboration with a large chemical company based in Japan that focuses of the synthesis and development of chemical products, such as photoresists, and equipment for semiconductors and displays.
The PhD project will involve the development of inorganic (transition metal) compounds and complexes as precursors for applications in electronic devices. The project will be at the forefront of inorganic chemistry with potential applications downstream. The project will involve both academic research as well as industrial collaboration and will suit a highly motivated student that has a passion for inorganic chemistry and its applications in the real world.
Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first class degree or a good 2.1 and/or an appropriate Master’s level qualification (or their equivalent).
Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent) English language requirements for postgraduate students - Study - Cardiff University
