The University of St Andrews is seeking an inorganic, physical or materials chemist, with experience in the structural characterisation of complex inorganic or inorganic-organic hybrid materials. The position is for 36 months in the first instance and is funded through the European Research Council. The successful candidate will join the research group of Professor Russell Morris. 

The role will involve structural characterisation of materials, and we routinely use a wide range of techniques, including powder X-ray diffraction (Rietveld refinement), solid-state NMR, pair distribution function analysis, electron microscopy amongst others.  

The successful candidate should have a PhD in chemistry or related subject, ideally with significant experience in one or more of the techniques named above. Further information can be obtained informally by contacting Professor Russell Morris rem1@st-andrews.ac.uk.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, who are under-represented in Science posts at the University.
