PhD Scholarship in Photosynthesis at Imperial College

Imperial College London is seeking a highly motivated PhD student with an interest in physics/chemistry. This funding is available for all students around the world. Applications are invited up to April 15, 2015.

Imperial College London in the group of Jasper van Thor, jointly supervised by James Barber. The topic is time resolved infrared vibrational spectroscopy of photosystem II of oxygenic photosynthesis. The research will involve primarily photoinduced spectroscopy measurements of photosynthesis using ultrafast laser systems and spectrometers. A significant aspect of the work will additionally involve structure based calculation and modelling using quantum chemistry, but will also involve biochemistry and sample manipulation.

The PhD position is funded at the UK-European level, providing fees and a 15 K p.a. stipend for a period of three years starting at, or before, 1 October 2015. Overseas applicants should be aware that the overseas fees are not covered by the studentship, and would need to be self funded. The fees and stipend cover UK and European applicants only.
