Dear colleague:

Apologies for cross postings.

A 3-year PhD studentship position is available for a EU resident to study crystal nucleation with a range of techniques. The chemical physics of crystal nucleation is of great fundamental and practical importance but is yet poorly understood. It is therefore one of the grand challenges on the border between physics, chemistry, and chemical engineering. Crystallisation is supposed to occur according to the Gibbs mechanism where numerous pre-nuclei form and disappear until one of these becomes critical and continues to grow to form a macroscopic crystal. However, there is increasing evidence for non-classical (non Gibbs) nucleation of crystals.

We will apply a number of experimental techniques to elucidate early nucleation phenomena. These include femtosecond optical Kerr effect (OKE) spectroscopy, femtosecond IR pump-probe and 2D-IR spectroscopy, light scattering, Raman microscopy, and confocal fluorescence microscopy (including fluorescence lifetime imaging). Some of this work will be carried out by two postdocs in the group. We are now looking for a PhD student to complement this work focussing either on the ultrafast or the microscopy experiments depending on preference and experience.

For informal inquiries, please contact Klaas Wynne, see http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/chemistry/staff/klaaswynne/.
