The University of Cambridge is offering PhD studentship in Experimental Investigation of Nanoparticle Synthesis for 2018/2019 academic session. Boost your application by being the first to apply for the Funded PhD Studentship In Experimental Investigation Of Nanoparticle Synthesis. The studentship provides a full stipend and covers the University and College fees at the Home/EU rate. Applicants of any nationality may apply, but please note that the difference in fees for Home/EU and Overseas students is substantial. See details below for more information.
Studentship is available to pursue the PhD programme.
Field Of study:
University is looking for an outstanding student who is interested in working on an experimental project to investigate the laminar flame synthesis of titanium dioxide nanoparticles. The project will investigate the factors controlling the particle morphology, including the coagulation and sintering behaviour of the particles. The project will require the student to apply techniques that have been recently developed (in the context of soot particles) to provide real-time spatially resolved measurements of temperature and of the particle size and number distribution in the flame. The project will run alongside a computational studentship that will use insights from the experimental investigations to inform a detailed model of the process.
The studentship provides a full stipend and covers the University and College fees at the Home/EU rate.
