Dear Colleagues,
Can you please let any suitable candidates know about the following  
PhD positions at the University of Edinburgh, both positions are  
available immediately. The first position is fully funded (stipend and  
fees) for UK/EU citizens (or students who have spent at least 3 years  
in the UK). The second position is fully funded for UK citizens (or  
students who have spent at least 3 years in the UK).
Thank you,
Eleanor Campbell

*************************************************
PhD Position in Time-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy of Fullerenes
-------------------------------
This 3 year project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, will expand on  
initial investigations (recently published in PRL 108, 173401) to  
study the properties of so-called Superatom Molecular Orbitals (SAMOs)  
for a range of hollow fullerene-based molecular systems  
(functionalized fullerenes, endohedral fullerenes, small carbon  
nanotubes). The aim will be to understand how the properties of the  
orbitals can be tuned by modifying the fullerene cage, ultimately  
leading to the development of materials with specific electronic  
properties. The project will combine experiment and theory. Advanced  
experimental techniques such as velocity map imaging photoelectron  
spectroscopy using amplified,wavelength-tunable fs laser pulses will  
be used to probe the properties of the SAMO excited states. The  
experimental work will be complemented by theoretical calculations of  
photoelectron angular distributions using time-dependent density  
functional theory.
You should have, or be expecting to achieve, a first or upper second  
class Honours degree, or equivalent, in chemistry, physics or chemical  
physics.
Please address informal enquiries to Prof. Eleanor Campbell  
([log in to unmask]). For the formal application procedure see:  
www.chem.ed.ac.uk/studying/postgraduate_research/apply.html.

PhD Position in the Development of a Graphene-Based Nanoparticle Detector
---------------------------------------
This 3 year project concerns proof-of-principle experiments to  
determine whether a suspended graphene membrane can be used to produce  
a sensitive neutral particle detector. The project will involve  
constructing a mass-selected cluster ion beam to test the response of  
graphene membranes in UHV to mass-selected species. The experiments  
will allow the detection principle and also the detection limit of the  
sensor to be tested as well as any necessary restrictions on particle  
velocity or constituents. Mass selected neutral particles (e.g.  
fullerenes) will then be used to demonstrate neutral particle  
detection. The neutral particle detector can be combined with fs laser  
ablation of nanoparticles to obtain depth profiling, thus allowing  
both the mass of neutral particles and their elemental make-up to be  
determined. The project will be carried out in collaboration with  
theoretical and experimental groups based in Sweden and Korea.
You should have, or be expecting to achieve, a first or upper second  
class Honours degree, or equivalent, in chemistry, physics or chemical  
physics.
