Job Summary

Highly motivated individuals are invited to apply for the post to join an exciting research project, which is part of our Catalytic Plasmonics (CPLAS) research programme. CPLAS aims to transform the field of chemical catalysis by combining plasmonic induced reaction-promoting physics with the chemistry of photo-catalysis. The transformative impact of this new field of plasmocatalysis will lie in a significant reduction of energy requirements in key reactions in energy conversion, environmental protection, and pharmaceutical synthesis, with exquisite control of reaction pathways via optical means. This interdisciplinary research programme combines the skills of physicists, materials scientists, and chemists from across Imperial College London, King’s College London, and the UK Catalysis Hub including the Universities of Cardiff, Bath and Manchester.

  • To conduct data analysis and ensure the validity and reliability of data at all times
  • To maintain accurate and complete records of all findings
  • To write reports for submission to research sponsors and collaborators
  • To prepare material for presentation in oral and poster formats
  • To present findings to colleagues and at conferences
  • To draft and submit publications to refereed journals
