Synthesis and characterisation of functional inorganic materials
We have a vacancy for a PhD student to work on the synthesis and characterisation of new oxide or fluoride ferroelectrics and magnetic materials. The work will involve synthetic solid state chemistry, crystallographic characterisation using X-ray and neutron diffraction and related techniques, and measurements of physical properties. The emphasis of our work is on understanding chemistry-structure-property relationships, leading to the design of improved materials for a variety of applications.
Students interested in undertaking a PhD in this research area should register their interest as soon as possible. Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Philip Lightfoot ([Email Address Removed]).
Please see: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/chemistry/prospective/pg/ for the application procedure or e-mail [Email Address Removed] for more information regarding PhD opportunities at St Andrews. We encourage applications for the EPSRC CDT in Critical Resource Catalysis (http://www.criticat.co.uk) and from Chinese nationals through the St Andrews CSC Scheme (https://csc.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/).
