PhD Position in Organic Chemistry at DTU, Denmark

A PhD fellowship is available in organic chemistry at DTU Chemistry. The vacant position is part of the Nanoguide project, which is a large strategic effort funded by the Danish Strategic Research Council, involving multiple research groups at the Technical University of Denmark and Copenhagen University Hospital – Rigshospitalet. The project is carried out in collaboration with two companies, GE Healthcare and Nanovi. The project aims to increase the quality of treatment for cancer patients that receives radiotherapy by developing new nanoparticle based imaging agents that can be used to enhance treatment precision, i.e. to increase radiation of…

PhD Studentship in Inorganic and Physical Chemistry at Hasselt University, Belgium

The topic of the PhD project is situated in the study of highly advanced nanostructured inorganic materials with applications in energy generation (e.g. photovoltaics) and energy storage (e.g. batteries). These materials are synthesized by menas of wet chemical methods (sol-gel, hydrothermal precipitation, ). All projects have a strong interdisciplinary component (chemistry, materials science) whereby there is collaboration with other universities and research centres such as IMEC. According to the interest of the candidate, the emphasis of the work can be on synthesis or on characterization of the developed precursors…

PhD Scholarship in Ab-initio Modeling of Electronic Excitations in Nanostruct Graphene at CNG, DTU, Denmark

The Department of Physics at DTU is inviting applications for a PhD project on computational modelling of graphene nanostructures. The focus will be on first-principles calculations of electronic properties, in particular on band gap engineering using e.g. anti-dot structuring and/or chemical functionalization. The influence of substrates on the electronic properties of graphene will also be explored. The calculations will be performed within the framework of density functional theory (DFT) for ground state properties and time-dependent density functional theory for excited state properties using the GPAW electronic structure code developed at DTU-Physics. Applicants should have a master’s degree in

PhD Scholarship in Organic Synthesis and Catalysis at DTU, Denmark

A 3-year PhD scholarship in the area of transition metal-catalysis under the joint supervision of Associate Professor Thomas E. Nielsen and Professor David Tanner is available, starting date as soon as possible, at the Department of Chemistry, Technical University of Denmark. The scholarship is part of a new research program at the Department of Chemistry, DTU, with focus on the use of transition metals to mediate novel tandem and cascade reactions to access biologically interesting small molecules, including applications to diversity- and target-oriented synthesis, including the total synthesis of biologically interesting natural products. The successful candidate should…

2012 PhD Scholarship in Environmental or Maritime History of Southeast Asia, Australia

A fully funded three and half year PhD scholarship is available to work under the supervision of Professor James Warren, who is coordinating one research stream of a 7-year Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) anchored at McGill University entitled ‘The Indian Ocean World: The Making of the First Global Economy in the context of Human–Environment Interaction’. Applications are invited for candidates with similar or complementary research interests. These interests can be pursued through study of the impacts of climate related and other natural hazards (cyclonic storms, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, drought) on the economy, society and history of…
