PhD Scholarship, Australian National University, Canberra Australia

Location: ANU, Canberra

Stipend: $28092 pa for up to 3.5 years (indexed every year by 2-3%)

I am seeking a PhD student with the equivalent of a First Class Honours or Master’s degree in physical chemistry, physics, chemical engineering or an equivalent discipline to participate in an Australian Research Council Discovery Project on unravelling the dominant drivers of ion specificity.

This exciting PhD project involves collaboration between highly successful research teams in the Research School of Physics at the ANU, The University of Newcastle and Flinders University. The student will have a unique opportunity to contribute towards new knowledge in the fields of colloid and interface science and soft condensed matter. In particular they will participate in an experimental program to better understand the fundamentals of ion specific effects, in particular how ions partition at interfaces. Ion specific effects are ubiquitous in soft matter systems including biology and in a diverse range of industry relevant and commercial fluids so improved fundamental understanding will have wide impact. 

 About you:

To be successful in the role, you will have:

  • Bachelor Honours (First Class) or Master’s degree in Physical Chemistry,  Physics, Engineering or equivalent.
  • Determination
