Three year PhD Studentship at the Department of Chemistry, University of Leicester, UK

 

Project: “Novel Combination of Spectroscopic and Computational Techniques to Probe the Breakdown of Atmospherically Important Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds”

 

A Ph.D. position is available from the 1st of October, 2011 for three years to work with Dr Corey Evans (Chemistry), Professor Paul Monks (Chemistry) and Professor John Remedios (Earth Observation Science) at the University of Leicester, UK. The person appointed will participate in a scientifically leading project investigating the reaction of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes with tropospheric species and determining reaction pathways and product yields. The Ph.D. work will be a mix of experimental and computational work and will include laboratory work in the UK, as well as the possibility of experiments in other countries using broadband microwave spectroscopy techniques. In addition to microwave spectroscopy, the project will involve computational chemistry, infrared spectroscopy and mass spectrometric studies. The student will also be expected to take part in instrument development work associated with the project, data acquisition software development, and in the analysis of the collected data.

The project will appeal to an ambitious graduate in Physics or Chemistry with an interest in spectroscopy or atmospheric chemistry. A minimum qualification of a 2.1 MSci degree from the UK or equivalent is essential. Further details are available from Dr Corey Evans (cje8@le.ac.uk).

Applications can be made online via the web link below but it is recommended that you contact Dr Evans if you have any doubts about your eligibility before making a formal application. For UK and EU nationals the studentship will cover a stipend for three years (£12,940 per annum for 2011/12) and all tuition fees. The deadline for applications is the 20th of April, 2011.
