  • Postdoctoral position available in Dr Anthony Phillips' group

    Congratulations to Dr Anthony Phillips, who with Dr Helen Walker (ISIS) has been awarded £470k from EPSRC to study barocaloric framework materials. These materials can be cycled between high- and low-entropy states by applying pressure, and could therefore be environmentally friendly replacements for commonly used refrigerants (which are both greenhouse gases and ozone depletors). As part of this project, a 3-year postdoctoral research position is now available in Dr Phillips' group. For further information please see the full job listing (reference QMUL18871).
