PhD student position in Materials Discovery of Nanomaterials: UCL 1167 views

A three-year PhD student position in Materials Discovery of Nanomaterials for Autocatalysts at the Clean Materials Technology Research Group, UCL (University College London)

Project description:

  1. The project is concerned with discovery of next generation nanoceramics for commercial autocatalysts.
  2. Nanomaterials libraries will be synthesised using continuous hydrothermal flow reactors.
  3. Nanomaterials will be designed with specific compositions and structures in order to affect their properties in the desired application of autocatalysts.
  4. The work will be principally experimental that involves nanoceramics synthesis.
  5. The work will include use of key analytical methods for inorganic materials, e.g. powder XRD, XPS, BET surface area, Raman spectroscopy, & catalytic testing or programmed reduction experiments.
  6. The main aim is to develop structure-property-compositional relationships to discover better autocatalysts; any lead nanomaterials that are identified in the initial work, will be scaled-up at UCL and evaluated further with accelerated ageing and catalytic testing in collaboration with industry and Harwell.
  7. The student will work as part of a bigger academic and industry team developing nanomaterials for catalytic auto-applications.

Requirements / Eligibility

  1. Only UK/EU students are eligible for this studentship.
  2. The candidates should have a good honours degree (first or upper second) chemistry, materials science, chemical engineering, or any related subject
  3. An enquiring and rigorous approach to research together (particular with an interest for laboratory based wet chemistry/materials research)
  4. A strong intellect and disciplined work habits.
  5. Training will be given in nanomaterials synthesis, characterisation and testing, and analytical techniques including electron microscopy.
  6. Good team-working, observational and communication skills are essential.

Further Information: For any further details of the studentship, please contact Professor Jawwad Darr –

Interested applicants should send an up-to-date curriculum vitae to Professor Darr.
