Ph.D. scholarship in experimental physics of the dynamics of liquids and solids

Department of Science and Environment, Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as Ph.D. student of Physics from January 1, 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for a period of three years.

Description of the Ph.D. project
The title of the Ph.D. project is: Rigidity and Dynamics of Ionic Liquids (RiDLliq).

The project RiDILiq is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark in the period 2019-2021, and led by Prof. Kristine Niss. The purpose of RiDILiq is to investigate whether the dynamics and the glass transition of room temperature ionic liquids is fundamentally different from that of simple liquids.

The Ph.D. student will be part of the Glass and Time center (http://glass.ruc.dk ) at Roskilde University’s Department of Science and Environment. Glass and Time is characterized by strong collaboration between experiment, simulation, and theory.

RiDILiq is a collaboration with Prof. Aleksandar Matic at Chalmers University of Technology (Göteborg, Sweden) and the Ph.D. student is expected to spend 4-6 months of the project at Chalmers.

The main experimental techniques used in the project will be:

  • Rheological measurement / mechanical spectroscopy.
  • Conductivty and dielectric spectroscopy.
  • Inelastic neutron scattering.
  • Small angle neutron and X-ray scattering.
