The MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology at
the Victoria University of Wellington (Wellington / New Zealand) is
offering a PhD position, available from October 2010.
The research will be in the field of soft matter (complex fluids
investigated by means of Rheo-NMR under high shear rates, application
of multidimensional NMR methods) and porous materials (NMR velocimetry
and diffusometry on fluids in complex pore systems, application of
multidimensional Inverse Laplace techniques and high pulsed field
gradients). The research to be undertaken concerns addressing
fundamental questions related to soft matter and porous media as well
as the development of the necessary NMR methodology.
We seek applications from national and international students who have
graduated in physics or chemistry, preferably with a background in
NMR. The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to work
in a well recognised NMR group (http://www.macdiarmid.ac.nz/nmr/) with
strong national and international collaborations. The PhD position is
fully funded (including fees) and enables one to stay in a well
established academic (http://www.victoria.ac.nz/scps/index.aspx) as
well as urban environment (http://www.wellingtonnz.com/).
Please send your application (including the email addresses of two
referees) together with a recent CV by email to
