Please bring this advert to the attention of any project students looking
for PhD positions in chemical physics. Apologies for cross-postings.


PhD positions at the University of Cambridge

Metal cluster spectroscopy and dynamics

Two fully funded PhD positions are available in the group of Dr Stuart
Mackenzie in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge

Project 1: Spectroscopy and dynamics of small metal clusters/nanoparticles

High resolution infra-red spectroscopy and velocity map imaging will be used
to elucidate the mechanisms of elementary reactions occurring on the surface
of small transition metal clusters

This well-funded project will involve the development of a novel instrument,
based on the ion imaging (velocity mapping) technique, applied for the first
time to determine the structures of small metal clusters generated by pulsed
laser ablation. It will involve a range of sophisticated laser spectroscopic
and high vacuum techniques and will provide ideal training for students,
particularly those with an interest in instrument development.

Project 2: Computational dynamics of transition metal clusters
Co-supervised by Dr David Wales (Cambridge) and Dr Tiffany Walsh (Warwick)

A variety of computational approaches will be used to determine the
structure and dynamics of low-lying isomers of small transition metal
clusters. The main objective of the research will be to characterise the
energy landscapes and reaction pathways of transition metal clusters in
combination with various adsorbates/ ligands. In particular, the student
will identify likely structures for cluster/ligand combinations highlighted
by experiments, and analyse complete reaction pathways for ligand
dissociation. The project will run in parallel with various complementary
experimental projects both in Cambridge and Warwick. The calculations will
be run on computational facilities in the Warwick Centre of Scientific
Computing and Cambridge Centre for Computational Chemistry.

Candidates should have, or be about to receive, a 1st class or upper 2nd
class honours degree in physical chemistry, physics or other relevant
discipline.
