We have funding for a PhD student to start in Oct 2019 to work on developing “programmable two-dimensional nanosheets for the sensing and separation of proteins”. See the link below for further information and to apply online.
Our MChem students, together with the rest of their peers, presented their year’s work to the rest of the Chemistry Department, from 3rd year undergraduates to distinguished Professors. Really well done to Jen, Josh and Tom who all created great posters, and have worked super hard on their projects this year. Good luck for your exams! We’re sad to see you leave, but all the best for the future!
This month, Kezia took part in a one day course for early stage researchers in the University of Liverpool London Campus. Research methods for solar PV II: Focus on PV devices. It was a good opportunity to learn the device architecture, fabrication, limiting aspects, research opportunities and performance of silicon, thin film, concentrator, organic, dye-sensitized and perovskite PV devices.
Dr Foster also ventured out of the Sheffield department this month to attend the annual UK-MOF conference. It was a great meeting and a brilliant community and he’s planning on taking the whole group next year!
This month Dave had the honour of presenting his research to MPs within the Houses of Parliament. He was selected as part of the STEM for Britain competition, and got to discuss his work with Sheffield Central MP, Paul Blomfield.
This month, Charlotte was added as a ‘student story’ to the departmental page for all the outreach she has done throughout the years in her undergraduate career continuing now into her PhD. See her student story here.
Kezia headed off to London for the Next Generation Materials for Solar Photovoltaics 2018 conference, organized by RSC. It was a good opportunity to engage with researchers in solar cell technology and to know about the current state of the art.
