<div> <p></p><p>A research post in the synthesis of molecular graphene nanosystems is available immediately, for a fixed-term of 24 months. The post will be developed in the framework of an ERC project, under the supervision of Professor Lapo Bogani. The postholder will explore the chemistry of molecular graphenoids and graphene nanoribbons that contain magnetic spin centres. The systems will prompt the exploration, within the ERC project, via time-resolved spectroscopy and integration into single-molecule electronic devices connected across graphene nanogaps.</p><br> <p>A breakthrough in the development of graphene nanosystems has come with the design and synthesis of molecular graphenoids, where atomic control over the structure is possible. This opens up the possibility of investigating long-sought magnetic properties and understanding the electronic behaviour of related devices. This purpose will necessitate non-trivial synthetic advances: using magnetic side-functionalization of nanoribbons; by integrating the chemistry of graphenoids with the coordination chemistry of transition metals and rare-earths. This full-time post offers the opportunity to establish the synthetic pathways for magnetic graphenoids, and to create the first libraries towards emerging quantum technologies. It is thus an opportunity to develop a novel area of chemistry, and investigate fundamental structure-properties links.</p><br> <p>Applicants must have a doctorate in synthetic chemistry (or be near completion) and have an outstanding track record of research and publications, commensurate with stage in career. Applicants will have research experience in creating graphene nanoribbons or polycyclic aromatic molecules via wet chemistry synthetic procedures.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Closes: Aug. 5, 2019, noon; salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

<div> <p></p><p>Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the Atomic and Laser Physics department.</p><br> <p>The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 1 year, with the possibility of extension for 1 year.</p><br> <p>The overarching goal of the ERC synergy grant Q-MAC is to exploit materials design, coherent optical methods and multiple theoretical approaches to deterministically control ordered states of strongly correlated electron materials, also referred to as &#8220;quantum&#8221; or &#8220;complex&#8221; materials. The underlying ideas can be applied to vast number of problems in materials physics, but the stated goal is that of optimising superconductivity at higher temperatures than achieved so far, possibly even at room temperature. The proposal starts from research strands that follow challenging but well-established paths, such as the use of complex-oxide heterostructures and strain engineering at interfaces to modulate the electronic properties. In a second class of investigations, coherent optical control of lattice dynamics with strong field THz transients is proposed to &#8220;anneal&#8221; the competing order quenching superconductivity. We also investigate using static and dynamic techniques to engineer new phases of condensed matter, e.g. by controlling materials with a single band crossing the Fermi level, to optimize superconductivity. This post calls for an expert researcher to assist with theoretical research in this strand of the project. Specifically, our work aims at developing and adapting optical schemes for the dynamical manipulation quantum materials and to describe the ensuing dynamics.</p><br> <p>The postholder will define, develop and undertake theoretical work and numerical experiments directed towards the research programme. They will have involvement in key decisions on research directions, methodologies and research responsibilities.</p><br> <p>The successful candidate will be expected to independently write research papers, as well as grant milestone and final reports, as well as presenting results at conferences. Study and interpret experimental results and propose new setups jointly with experimental collaborators.</p><br> <p>The role also involves Instruction and day-to-day supervision of graduate students and others and there will be the opportunity to teach.</p><br> <p>Applicants should possess a PhD in physics or a related area, and ideally a strong background in in the theory of driven strongly correlated many body quantum systems, superconductivity, and/or non-equilibrium transport phenomena.</p><br> <p>Previous experience in the field of Tensor Network Theory for describing strongly correlated quantum systems will be an advantage.</p><br> <p>Candidates are expected to demonstrate a proven track record of research experience, ability to take forward a research project and to deliver output, communication and analysis skills, as well as the ability to work in a team or independently.</p><br> <p>Please direct enquiries about the role to Dieter Jaksch (<a rel="nofollow" href="mailto:dieter.jaksch@physics.ox.ac.uk">dieter.jaksch@physics.ox.ac.uk</a>).</p><br> <p>You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and details of three referees as part of your online application.</p><br> <p>Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 5 August 2019 can be considered.</p> </div>

Postdoctoral Researcher - REDOX Biology

Closes: Aug. 16, 2019, noon; salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

<div> <p></p><p>We have a new and exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Hammond group, based at the Old Road Campus in Headington. The &#8216;chemical biology tools for investigating the chemistry of REDOX stress&#8217; programme grant brings together ten academic groups, located across three sites in Oxford and King&#8217;s College London, and industrial partners including GSK and GE Healthcare. The aim of the programme is to develop tools to image and study the REDOX environment in cells, tissues and in vivo. We will use a range of imaging modalities including fluorescence-based techniques to study cellular detail, and PET- and MRI-based approaches to enable in vivo imaging. The ultimate aim of the programme is to use the REDOX environment to better understand and predict disease. Specifically, this role will be focused on the validation of novel probes for the measurement of REDOX state in cell lines. Importantly, we will ask how changes to individual parameters, such as oxygen, impact other REDOX components and cellular metabolism.</p><br> <p>Professor Hammond&#8217;s research is focused on tumour hypoxia and how this impacts treatment response. Regions of hypoxia (low oxygen) occur to some degree in most solid tumours. Most importantly, hypoxia is a well-established marker of poor patient prognosis. This is in part due to increased therapy resistance in hypoxic tumours. The Hammond lab has been responsible for describing the DNA damage response, which is largely a result of replication stress, in hypoxic conditions. Selected publications can be found on the group website (www.rob.ox.ac.uk/research/ester-hammond) or for a comprehensive list use hammond_em to search Pubmed. Professors Hammond and Conway (Department of Chemistry, Oxford University) have been collaborating for approximately 10 years, this collaboration began with the generation of hypoxia-activated molecularly targeted pro-drugs to combat tumour hypoxia.<br> <br>The postholder&#8217;s responsibilities will include collaborating and communicating with the PI, Co-I and other programme researchers, to deliver the overall aims of the programme, as well as managing own academic research and administrative activities. This involves small-scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines and contributing ideas for new research projects. You will also be expected to prepare high-quality paper manuscripts, reporting the research completed by the programme. You will possess (or be near to completing) a PhD/DPhil in molecular biology, biochemistry, biology or a related science (or have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the post). A high level of technical competence and experience in molecular/cell biology methods and techniques, (for example CRISPR), along with demonstrable competence and success in the PhD research area (and postdoctoral work if appropriate), are also essential for this role.</p><br> <p>This is a full-time post, funded for 3 years in the first instance.</p><br> <p>All applicants must complete a short online application form and upload a CV and supporting statement.</p><br> <p>The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 16 August 2019.</p> </div>

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Understanding the Fingerprints of Large Igneous Provinces in the Sedimentary Record

Closes: Sept. 9, 2019, noon; salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

<div> <p></p><p>The department seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work under the direction of Professor Tamsin Mather (University of Oxford) to further our understanding of the traces left by large igneous provinces (LIPs) in the sedimentary record. The role will have a specific focus on the element mercury (Hg) that has received widespread recent attention. This post is part of the ERC-funded &#8216;Revealing hidden volcanic triggers for global environmental change events in Earth&#8217;s geological past using mercury (Hg) (V-ECHO)&#8217; project, whose principal aim is to understand the role of prolonged large-scale volcanism in periods of major environmental change throughout Earth&#8217;s geological past. The PDRA will contribute to an improved understanding of the environmental processing of volcanic-related emissions between outgassing and deposition and their chemistry within the sediments themselves. This approach will allow us to unlock more information from these volcanic proxies and elucidate the interplay between LIP volcanism and global environmental change.</p><br> <p>The researcher will be responsible for undertaking measurements on a series of carbon-isotope excursion events and other records of major environmental change throughout the geological record in order to understand the role of LIP volcanism in triggering such changes. These measurements will include: Hg concentrations, total organic carbon (TOC) and C isotopes (in Oxford with Tamsin Mather and Hugh Jenkyns); Os isotopes (at Royal Holloway University of London with Alex Dickson); Hg-isotope measurements (at the University of Toronto with Bridget Bergquist) and exploratory development of techniques such as sequential extraction and synchrotron measurements to improve understanding of Hg processing and preservation. The PDRA will also work with Nick Tosca at the University of Oxford to undertake low-temperature experiments in the aqueous geochemistry laboratory followed by analyses to understand key, but poorly understood, diagenetic pathways of Hg in seawater both in Mesozoic oceans and under the &#8216;ferruginous conditions&#8217; thought to characterize the marine environment during much of the Precambrian.</p><br> <p>Candidates must hold or be close to completion of a PhD/DPhil in a relevant field, have experience of generating and interpreting carbon-isotope excursions and/or other geochemical signatures of major environmental change encoded in the stratigraphic record, together with an appreciation of the syn- and post-depositional processes potentially surrounding the far-field sedimentary fingerprints of LIPs. The project involves collaborations with other UK and international institutions. Experience working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, networking and setting up new contacts is required. Furthermore, the successful candidate must be able to manage their own research and administrative activities, lead and report on an independent research programme and have excellent written and oral communication skills. There is scope for the PDRA to undertake some teaching, either in taught courses, field courses, or in the supervision of Masters projects.</p><br> <p>For further details of the post please see the further particulars. This post is full-time and fixed-term for up to 48 months. We wish to fill the post at the earliest opportunity.</p><br> <p>Applications must be received by 12.00 noon on 9 September 2019. Our provisional date for interviews is Monday 30 September 2019.</p> </div>
