UCL Doctoral Training Programme in Atomic and Molecular Control
Doctoral Training Programme in Atomic and Molecular Control
Applications are invited for 4 year PhD positions within the Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) in Atomic and Molecular Control hosted by UCL Chemistry and Physics Departments.
|The chemical, physical, biological and bulk properties of matter are determined at the atomic and molecular level. Recent developments at the interface between chemistry and physics have enabled us to begin to monitor and manipulate many key aspects of atomic and molecular behaviour.|
The development of more
sophisticated methods to monitor and control the behaviour of atoms, molecules
and biomolecules is a major challenge for the physical sciences for the 21st
This control technology will allow us to develop functioning molecule-sized devices (nanotechnology), reduce inefficient energy losses in organic semiconductors (materials), and probe living cell function (biology). One of the biggest challenges in the development of the fundamental science underpinning atomic and molecular control is its multidisciplinary and highly technical nature.
