PhD Studentship in Colloid and Interface Science, University of Cambridge, UK

Two PhD studentships are available from October 2011 to work on projects in the research group led by Dr Stuart Clarke. The projects will investigate the adsorption and mixing behaviour of molecules at the solid / solution interface using a number of novel techniques including X-ray and neutron scattering, and calorimetry. The project may make use of international facilities worldwide as well as in Cambridge.
Applicants should have, or be about to receive, at least the equivalent of a UK II.1 honours degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or a related discipline. The studentship covers tuition fees plus a maintenance grant for UK and other EU nationals who are eligible for the Home/EU fees rate. Non-EU nationals may apply if they have funding in place to cover the fees differential for overseas students.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 31 March 2011
