4-year PhD studentship in X-ray and Optical Spectroscopy at University College Londen, England

UCL Chemistry Department is offering a fully funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate to start in September 2024. This position is jointly funded by the STFC UK XFEL Hub.

The project will involve using lab-based ultrafast optical spectroscopies as well as using international synchrotron and X-ray free electron laser facilities to study a variety of molecular systems, including metal-organic cages and organic complexes made by our synthetic collaborators. You will be responsible for planning and performing such experiment, performing data analysis and actively contributing to the activities in the research group. No previous experience in any of the spectroscopic techniques is necessary though any programming or data analysis experience will be advantageous. Enthusiasm and willingness to learn is key.

The applicants should have, or be expecting to achieve, a first or upper second-class Honours degree or equivalent in subjects such as chemistry, physics or a related subject.


Deadline for application: 8 March 2024
