Terms and Conditions:
- Candidates must hold an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject area such as Chemistry, Physical Sciences, Materials or Chemical Engineering.
- Really highly desirable is knowledge of synthesis and manipulation under protective atmospheres, powder X-ray diffraction and magnetometry.
- This studentship is available for UK/EU candidates only due to funding restrictions.
To apply, candidates need to do the following:
- Provide covering letter which indicates their convinience for the project
