Project Description

The Departments of Physics and Chemistry are seeking to appoint talented and motivated postgraduate students in the area of the ultrafast spectroscopy of advanced materials. A fully-funded, 3.5 year, PhD studentship is offered under the EPSRC CASE scheme, in partnership with Spectra-Physics, a major international laser company. The project will make use of a new state-of-the-art laser facility at Warwick that provides ultra-short pulses of terahertz, infrared, visible and UV light. This will enable investigations into areas such as quantum materials (functional oxides, magnetoelectrics, defect complexes), lasers and medicine (fluorescent nanoparticles for drug delivery, photodynamic therapy, photostability of molecular building blocks) and semiconductor nanomaterials (charge transport in electronic and photo-catalytic materials). The details of the project will be tailored to the skills and interests of the PhD student, as well as the opportunities that will arise from the new laser facility. This project is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated student with an interest in applying cutting edge experimental capabilities to understand structure-dynamics-function relationships in photo-physical or photo-chemical systems.

Enquires and informal applications should include a C.V and be made as soon as possible to Dr James Lloyd-Hughes ([email protected]) and Dr Vasilios Stavros ([email protected]).

For details of how to apply formally see: http://www.go.warwick.ac.uk/pgapply.

Funding Notes

A full 3.5 year studentship for UK or EU students (fees and maintenance) is available. Candidates should hold or expect to hold a 1st (or high 2.1) in Physics or related subject area.

The Physics department is proud to be an IOP Juno Champion and a winner of an Athena Swan Silver Award, reflecting our commitment to equal opportunity and to fostering an environment in which all can excel.
