London Centre for Nanotechnology creates over 20 new Ph.D. positions

(Nanowerk News) The London Centre for Nanotechnology is pleased to announce the creation of over 20 new Ph. D. positions for the current academic year. The positions cover all aspects of research at the LCN and are available immediately. We welcome applications from students in any scientific discipline who are able to demonstrate a high level of academic achievement and a strong motivation to do scientific research.
The LCN invites applications from recent graduate students in any scientific discipline, from any country. You need to be able to demonstrate a high level of academic achievement as well as strong motivation for doing a Ph. D at the LCN.
The LCN covers all aspects of core nanotechnology and many other subjects that you may not think of as nanotechnology. These include condensed matter physics, energy research, photonics, materials science, neutron and x-ray scattering, security science, complex systems and molecular modelling.
If you are interested in any of these subjects, please check out the specific projects listed on these pages and the webpages of the individual academic members of staff at the LCN. If you like a particular project then email the appropriate member of staff. If you are interested (say in a member of staff or subject area) but cannot identify a particular project, please email Prof. Bramwell, who may be able to advise you on opportunities not listed here.
If you are a high academic achiever and are highly motivated to do science - please get in touch!
