Value: NZ$25,000 per annum
Tenure: 3 years
Available from: 1st January 2012
Applications assessed from: 1st August 2011
Applications are invited for a three-year PhD scholarship in structural chemistry to work under the supervision of Dr. Sarah Masters. The position is available to start on 1st January 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter. The group employs the technique of gas electron diffraction (GED) to study molecular structure in the gas phase, with current focus in the novel area of structure determination of short-lived species. The GED apparatus has been modified to use, where appropriate, very high temperature inlet systems to generate transient species in situ. This project will continue the development of new methods for species generation, concentrating on photolysis methods.
Applicants should have (or be about to receive) an honours degree (at least 2.1 or equivalent) in Chemistry or Physics. Experience in photolysis methods is desired, along with the use of computational techniques for structure determination. A strong interest in development of new experimental methods is essential.
Please visit the Masters Group website for more details of our research: http://www.chem.canterbury.ac.nz/people/masters.shtml
Applications, including a full CV detailing academic qualifications, and contact details for two academic referees, together with a covering letter should be sent to: email@example.com
Applicants must also apply for a University of Canterbury scholarship (closing date 15th October 2011). Two types of UC scholarships are available, Canterbury Scholarships for NZ citizens or permanent residents, and UC International Doctoral Scholarships for international students.
Applications will be assessed from 1st August 2011, until an appointment has been made.
