A fully funded PhD studentship is now available to work in the group of Dr Rebecca Ingle at UCL Chemistry on using optical and X-ray spectroscopies to explore photoinduced processes in the gas phase and solution of biologically and technologically relevant molecules.
The successful candidate will have the chance to partake in the development of new UCL Laser Facility as well as develop experiments at international X-ray synchrotron and free electron laser facilities. Enthusiasm and willingness to learn is more essential than prior experience of the techniques involved.
The applicants should have, or be expecting to achieve, a first or upper second class Honours degree or equivalent in Chemistry, Physics or a related degree. Due to funding restrictions, this studentship is only open to applicants from the UK and EU, who have been resident in the UK for at least 3 years preceding their start on the programme or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
Interested candidates should initially contact supervisor Rebecca Ingle ([email protected]) with a motivation letter expressing their interest in the project and CV with expected/anticipated degree mark. Informal inquiries are encouraged. 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 Dr Jadranka Butorac ([email protected]).
Early application is encouraged as the position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate has been identified.
