Dear Neutron Scattering mailing list,
I hope this message finds you well.
I have a PhD vacancy to announce, joint between the University of Cambridge Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy and the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (both in the UK).
Professor Rachel Evans and I are advertising a PhD studentship on the design and characterisation of light-responsive Pickering emulsions using neutron techniques (spin-echo/small-angle neutron scattering). In the initial stages, the project will involve particle and emulsion preparation and characterisation using standard lab methods (contact angle, DLS, microscopy) in Cambridge. After that, the student will spend at least 1 year at ISIS helping to design a new sample environment that combines ultrasound and, eventually, irradiation and then will use this for the remainder of the project to characterise the emulsions.
It’s quite the challenge, so if you know anyone looking for PhD opportunities, with a particular interest in characterisation methods and experimental design, who would be willing to get stuck in, we would be very grateful if you could share this link below:
