We’re really excited to offer a PhD studentship for 2020 joint with Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron facility!
- Electric Field-Induced Distortions in Framework Materials: Full Structure Determination at MHz Frequencies
The project is funded for 4 years and the student will spend 2 years at Birmingham, 2 years at Diamond, where they will investigate how the structures of functional materials – including metal–organic frameworks and molecular ferroelectrics – change with applied electric fields.
The student will gain cutting-edge skills in materials synthesis, time-resolved single crystal X-ray diffraction and physical property measurement.
