We are always interested in hearing from talented and motivated students and early-career researchers who are interested in working in our labs. Please send enquiries including CV directly to Dr Nielsen. For international students, please follow this link for information regarding QMUL’s international partners for PhD funding.
We have two fully funded PhD positions (both are restricted to UK home students). Please get in touch if you have any questions about the projects or eligibility. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
Project 1 is entitled “2D conductive polymers for quantum electronic devices” and is jointly supervised with Dr Jan Mol in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. More details and information on how to apply can be found here.
Project 2 is entitled “Sequence-Defined Pi-Conjugated Materials for Organic Electronics” and is jointly supervised with Prof Andrew Livingston in the School of Engineering and Materials Science. More details and information on how to apply can be found here.
We are currently recruiting PhD students for October 2022 to work on the synthesis of new organic electronic or bioelectronic materials. Talented students with a background in synthetic organic chemistry, polymer chemistry or materials chemistry who are interested in working in our group are encouraged to contact Dr Nielsen with a CV before 15 January 2021!
