I have a fully-funded PhD Scholarship available to join our “Environmental Materials" group at the ASE, NTU Singapore. The project is fully grant funded with a PhD start date of 1st January 2024.
The project will suit a student keen on learning and discovering the nature of Earth and Planetary Materials under extreme conditions, using experimental methods. It will focus on understanding the nature of water under extreme conditions, and the implications of structural changes observed in situ at high-pressure and temperature. The principal experimental techniques used will be in situ Raman spectroscopy of samples confined in the diamond anvil cell, as well as similar in situ X-ray absorption spectroscopy at synchrotron facilities.

Our lab has recently-established and well-supported facilities for in-situ XRD under controlled gas atmospheres, Raman, FTIR, piston-cylinder, gas-mixing, DAC, SEM and EPMA and access to NTU central facilities for NMR and laser spectroscopy. Singapore has funded partnerships with synchrotron light sources and NTU fosters a strong network of inter-disciplinary collaborations. Our experimental work is augmented and illuminated by further computational studies supported by the ASPIRE2A facility of the National Supercomputer Centre Singapore.
Please do bring this to the attention of any potential applicants, who should contact me directly with a CV and the names of two referees.
The minimum admission requirement is a Bachelor’s degree with 2nd Class Honors Upper (or equivalent eg CGPA >3.2).
