About the Project
Extensive training in all relevant skills will be provided. Training will be provided in a wide range of surface modification techniques (vacuum metallisation, surface chemical modification, surface plasma modification and device fabrication using ink-jet printing) and characterisation methods (NTA, SEM, advanced microscopy and image analysis, UV-vis spectrometry, Zeta Potential measurement, XPS). In addition there will be the opportunity to learn software skills in the graphical language Labview, which is widely used in industry. Wider personal development, and gaining advanced subject specific knowledge will be facilitated by the Universities doctoral training program.
The PhD will equip the student with the ability to demonstrate a wide range of interdisciplinary skills which are well sought after both in industry and academia. Experience in state of the art manufacturing methods such as ink jet printing and training in machine vision software (Labview, an industry standard platform for instrumental development and control) is desirable across a wide range of high technology manufacturing industries. In addition, surface chemistry skills and associated characterisation methods are attractive to many sectors. Furthermore the student will gain experience that will provide a strong platform to start an academic research career.
My laboratory is fully equipped with the instrumentation required for the planned program of work. Consumables be supported by DGF funds. The student will also be actively encouraged to seek funding via travel scholarships to support conference attendance.
Demonstrable high level of written and spoken English. If English is not your first language, then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) average of 6.5 or above with at least 6.0 in each component.
