    School of Chemistry Alumni to Student Networking Reception 2019



    The School of Chemistry will be holding its annual Alumni to Student Networking reception with our Junior Sophister students. If you are a graduate from our Chemistry, Chemistry with Molecular Modelling, Medicinal Chemistry or Nanoscience- Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials with two years or more work experience, we would be delighted to have you back to the School for on March 12th 2019 from 6-9 pm.

    The event will begin with refreshments and a welcoming reception, followed by an alumni panel discussion where each graduate will give an overview of their career path to date to current Junior Sophister students.

    AMBER offers five CDT-PhD studentships funded by SFI-EPSR for
    the next Academic Year 2019-2020.


    The Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Centre (AMBER) is inviting applications for five (5) PhD studentships to start in September 2019.  These studentships are part of the joint SFI-EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced characterisation for Materials (CDT ACM) programme.  The CDT ACM programme is a collaboration between Trinity College Dublin, Imperial College London and University College London (UCL).  Successful applicants will be registered at Trinity College Dublin but will be required to spend their first semester in London attending lectures, receiving expert training and completing coursework with their UK colleagues at Imperial and UCL. Further short visits are scheduled during years 2-4 of the program.  Applicants must have been resident in an EU member state for 3 out of the last 5 years to be eligible for funding through this programme.

    The ideal applicants will have a 1st Class or strong 2-1 Honours Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or related disciplines.  The researcher will work closely with other members of a multidisciplinary project team.  Excellent time-management, written- and oral-communication skills are essential.

    To make informal enquires please contact Jesus Barco Montero  The deadline for applications is 5pm on March 29th.

    The AMBER research centre, as a community of researchers, welcomes its responsibility to provide equal opportunities for all. We are actively seeking diversity in our research teams and particularly encourage applications from under-rrepresented groups.
