This PhD project aims to provide atomic level information of reactive centres in photocatalytic materials through the application of advanced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, to yield detailed reaction mechanisms and kinetics. The project will involve synthesis of nanoparticles, in collaboration with colleagues in Hokkaido University (Japan), and advanced characterisation via multiple spectroscopic techniques (SEM, UV-vis, XPS, EPR).

What is funded

This is a 3.5 year funded PhD with Home/EU tuition fees and a standard stipend.

This studentship is open to Home, EU or Overseas Candidates.

However, Overseas candidates should note that they will be required to cover the difference between Home and Overseas tuition fees each year.


Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first class degree or a good 2.1 and/or an appropriate Master’s level qualification (or their equivalent).

How to Apply

Applicants should apply to the Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry with a start date of July 2020.
