We’ve secured a grant from Oxford Chemistry’s Public Engagement with Research funds for a paid 6-week* summer project on “Flexible, functional framework materials”. It will involve building interactive models to demonstrate how the crystal structures of materials influence their properties and producing information cards and a short online video about them. Suitable candidates should be undergraduate students with an interest in materials, crystallography and of course public engagement!
In other news, our other summer project, on metal-organic framework formation, is still available! If you’re an undergraduate student interested in functional materials, crystallisation and chemical kinetics this could be for you!
For both the projects above, please send a CV and short statement of interest to Hamish by Sun 22 April. Informal interviews will be held at the beginning of Trinity Term.
*Amended from original version: duration will be 6 weeks.
