Scholarship Open for International Students: No

Scholarship Description: We are seeking to employ a highly motivated researcher in the field of mechanical properties and high-pressure research with a broad understanding of materials science and semiconductors. The Department of Electronic Materials Engineering (EME) conducts interdisciplinary research in areas such as condensed matter physics, materials science and device engineering. This includes world-class research in the growth, structure, properties and applications of electronic materials. The diversity of the Department’s research is one of its key strengths, underpinning its broad collaborative base and its ability to attract students and researchers from a range of disciplines. You will work in a small team which focuses on the fundamental physics behind the mechanical deformation of materials using nanoindentation as a core technique. The position will focus on the high-pressure behaviour of the elemental semiconductors Si and Ge in both the amorphous and crystalline form.

How to Apply: Online or by Post

Scholarship Application Deadline: 30 November 2011
