About the Project
A fully funded 3-year PhD studentship is available in UCL Chemistry to work on a highly interdisciplinary project in the group of Dr Gemma-Louise Davies. The project will involve the development of 0D and 1D nanostructured materials for a variety of applications, including for medical applications in the emerging field of ‘theranostics’ (the dual capability of therapeutics and diagnostics on a single platform). The student will gain expertise in inorganic nanomaterial synthetic techniques, continuous flow reactor synthesis, and the use of various analytical techniques, including, but not limited to, relaxometry, clinical MRI and electron microscopy.

The applicants should have, or expect to gain, at least a 2.1 honours or equivalent at Bachelors or Masters level in Chemistry or a related discipline. The successful applicant will demonstrate strong interest and self-motivation in the subject and the ability to think analytically and creatively. An enquiring and rigorous approach to research as well as good team-working, observational and communication skills (both presentation and writing skills in English) are also essential. Previous research experience in contributing to a collaborative interdisciplinary research environment is highly desirable but not essential, as training will be provided. UCL offers a world leading scientific environment in the heart of London.
Applicants should send their applications (motivation letter, CV and contact info for 2 referees) by email to Dr Davies ([Email Address Removed]), who may also be approached for informal enquiries.
Suitable candidates will be required to complete an electronic application form at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/apply. Any admissions queries should be directed to [Email Address Removed].
