PhD position for nanoparticle micromanipulation, University of St Andrews

New PhD position for nanoparticle micromanipulation, University of St Andrews (starting summer 2009 onwards): Nanoparticles are now established as important for numerous studies in fundamental physics and biophotonics. The project involves studies of the manipulation of metallic and dielectric nanoparticles and quantum dots and is a mixture of experimental work and theory. The aim will be to look at new methods to trap and sort such objects. The position will suit someone with an excellent first degree in physics and is fully funded for UK and EU students. Please contact Kishan Dholakia (kd1@st-andrews.ac.uk) or David Stevenson (ds50@st-andrews.ac.uk).
