The University of Western Australia is inviting applications for the PhD Scholarships in Chemistry (Molecular Electronics) for the 2020/2021 academic session.
Up to three PhD scholarships are available to join a team investigating structure-property relationships in molecular electronics. These scholarships provide opportunities to become involved with molecular synthesis, molecule-surface anchoring strategies and the measurement of molecular electronic properties from both single-molecule and mono-layer film junctions.
You will be part of a multidisciplinary team working within the Low group and interacting closely with a network of world-class surface scientists, scanning-probe microscopists, electrochemists, and theoreticians to develop molecular materials for applications in electronics and future materials technologies. Training will be provided to the successful student’s inappropriate aspects of synthetic chemistry, including inert atmosphere techniques, electrochemistry, and/or scanning probe microscopy depending on skills, interests, and attributes.
Worth of Award
The scholarship covers $30000 and a fortnightly stipend.
The following are the eligibility criteria;
- An Honours degree (H1) or MSc in Chemistry or equivalent, with a substantial research project component, and appropriate English language skills
- All interested applicants should submit an expression of interest to Professor Paul Low
- Qualification through WACE, TEE or equivalent pass in English, English Literature, or English as a Second Language
- GCE O-level (GCSE and IGCSE)Minimum grade C / C6 in English, English Language, English (First Language) or English Literature.
- Minimum grade A in IGCSE English as a Second Language, with grade 1(One) in Oral/Aural Communication.
- Must be endorsed by CIE, OCR, Edexcel, AQA or other UK authority (independent and school-assessed O-levels are not sufficient).
