We are seeking an enthusiastic spectroscopist to undertake an EPSRC-funded interdisciplinary project in photo-chemistry.

The aim of the project is to work toward artificial photosynthesis. The key question to answer is how nuclear and electronic properties of porphyrins (natural and artificial) regulate their photo-dynamic behaviour. In this aim, the successful candidate will use a variety of spectroscopic techniques: from steady state to ultrafast transient and fluorescence spectroscopy. You will also have the opportunity to develop new spectroscopic tools based on pulse shaping technologies.

You will have a PhD in chemistry, Physics or related fields or equivalent experience and experience in ultrafast or time-resolved spectroscopies. You are self-motivated, result-driven with ethical consideration and have the ability to communicate with other researchers from other disciplines and backgrounds.

You will be part of an active, interdisciplinary research team which involves chemists and physicists. This project will enable you to become part of vibrant and growing research community.
