A.G. Leventis PhD Studentship in Nanotechnology

Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship to be filled by September - October 2017. This scholarship will fund students for their tuition fees, a bursary to cover living expenses (£14,553 per year) and a Research Training Support Grant for research consumables and conference attendance. This role will be based at the Nano Group within the Electronics and Computer Science Department and will use state-of-the-art facilities at the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre. SNC is one of the premiere cleanrooms in Europe, facilitating a uniquely broad range of technologies by combining traditional and novel top down fabrication with state-of-the-art bottom up fabrication.

The ideal candidate should have an MEng/MSc (or equivalent, or near completion) with first class honours or distinction in Electronics, Physics, Materials Science, or a closely related subject with experience in micro/nano fabrication techniques and an interest in sensors. The Nano Group will provide research experience in one of its programs, training, laboratory facilities and access to its seminar and lectures. Students would also be encouraged to attend three major conferences during their period of study and would have access to all university facilities for wider study, including the libraries, and recreation.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Prof Themis Prodromakis (<>) directly for further details.

To apply please send a CV, relevant publications, the names of two referees and a covering letter explaining your current interests and relevant background to Mrs Angela Westley (<>).  Please note that the successful candidate will be asked to submit a PhD research application to Registry to ensure they have met all necessary admissions criteria. More information on the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre (<>and<>) and the Nano Group (<>) are available online.
