We are offering PhD positions in the Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory, the first centre for nanoscience in the UK. It is a world-leading player in several areas of nanoscience research aligned with Feynman’s original vision of "arranging the atoms", notably (a) atomic clusters and (b) atomic manipulation. The field is now at a very exciting stage, where we can test fundamental science ideas in finely controlled systems while at the same time developing applications in engineering, materials, chemistry and biomedicine, developing a new generation of devices based on nanoscale architectures. Collaborations with high-tech companies in the applied areas promote technology transfer and provide additional investment and sponsorship for research and students.
