Congratulations to Josefa Vidal Laveda who has been awarded the Dr William F Cockburn Travel Scholarship from the University of Glasgow. Josefa will be travelling to the Solid State Chemistry Gordon Research Conference in July 2014.
Congratulations to Josefa who has won first prize for the Chemistry and Materials section at the ISIS Neutron training course, for her poster entitled 'Microwave synthesis of LiFe1-xMnxPO4 nanostructures for use as positive electrodes in Li-ion batteries'. Details of the neutron training course can be found here.
Welcome to Josefa Vidal who has joined our group from the University Jaume I of Castellón, Spain. Josefa starts her PhD with us on the development of new synthetic routes to functional nanoscale materials. Welcome!
Welcome to Áine Laughlin and Cheryl O'Connor who have joined our group for their final year projects. Áine will be developing routes to nanostructured magnetic materials for biological imaging applications, while Cheryl is investigating microwave synthetic approaches to metal oxides for use as Li-ion battery materials. Welcome!
Applications are welcomed for a new PhD position available in our group from September 2013 on the rational design of functional nanomaterials. Closing date for receipt of applications is July 31st. A great challenge in solid-state synthesis is the rational design of compounds and we are particularly interested in the construction of nanoscale materials in… Continue reading PhD studentship available from Sep 2013
Welcome to Chris Kennedy, who joins our group for the summer on an EPSRC Vacation Scholarship. Chris will be developing routes to nanostructured energy efficient materials. Welcome!
Serena is a new associate editor for the RSC journal, Nanoscale, which publishes experimental and theoretical work spanning nanoscience and nanotechnology: http://blogs.rsc.org/nr/2013/05/07/new-nanoscale-associate-editor-seren-corr/
