The University of Exeter’s Department of Physics and Astronomy is inviting applications for an EPSRC iCASE PhD studentship fully-funded by the EPSRC and Renishaw plc to commence in September 2024. The studentship will cover Home or International tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of at least £20,622 (current rate for 23/24) for 4-years full-time.

Project Description:

The project aims to develop a novel technology that merges the complementary capabilities of Raman and coherent Raman scattering microscopy. Raman and coherent Raman scattering (CRS) are both advanced optical analytical techniques used for a wide range of materials and healthcare technologies research. Raman provides detailed molecular information based on the spectral signature of photons inelastically scattered by molecular vibrations. In contrast, CRS microscopy uses ultrafast laser pulses to drive nonlinear light-matter interactions to enhance the signal from a specific vibrational frequency to provide real-time label-free image contrast based on the intensity of a single Raman band.

By harnessing the complementary features of these methods, we intend to create a single, versatile platform that gives comprehensive chemical and structural information from microscopic regions of interest guided by high-resolution, label-free, images of the sample. The instrument's versatility will make it an invaluable tool for a wide array of applications, including pharmaceutical development, environmental monitoring, and materials characterization. It will enable scientists to gain deeper insights into complex materials and biomedical processes, facilitating for example the development of novel therapeutics.

We are looking for a candidate with an enthusiasm for research, ability to work independently, and a passion for multidisciplinary collaboration. Prior research experience (such as a MPhys/MSc project or equivalent) in optics, and coding skills are desirable but not essential.

The collaboration with the named project partner is subject to contract.  Please note full details of the project partner’s contribution and involvement with the project is still to be confirmed and may change during the course of contract negotiations.  Full details will be confirmed at offer stage.

International applicants need to be aware that you will have to cover the cost of your student visa, healthcare surcharge and other costs of moving to the UK to do a PhD.
