Join BonLab as a PhD student in 2017

We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated people to join the BonLab as a PhD student in October 2017. Do you have what it takes to work at the forefront in supracolloidal chemical engineering? 

You will be working under guidance of Stefan A. F. Bon on an exciting 4 year project in collaboration with industry in the area of polymer and colloid science. Stefan A. F. Bon Stefan A. F. Bon


We study the chemistry and physics of colloidal systems in which molecular and/or colloidal entities can be assembled into more complex supracolloidal structures, with the aim to produce innovative advanced materials . The project will span synthesis of particles and macromolecules with a design tailored to provide function, the development of methods to (self)-organise colloidal matter, and the fabrication and characterization of advanced colloidal materials of use in a variety of industrial applications.

Enquiries, which should include a CV with the names of two referees, should be made to Stefan A. F Bon (


An eligible student must hold, or be predicted to obtain, at least a 2.1 4-year degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, or an equivalent scientific discipline. Exceptional students with a 3 year BSc degree only will be considered. This studentship is open to UK and EU nationals and those of equivalent status* (fees paid, plus annum stipend). Availability is for 4 years beginning on 1st October 2017.

*Please note - ELIGIBILITY - We can only offer the stipend to UK citizens who have lived in the UK for over 3 years (e.g. as a student), or EU nationals. Applicants from outside the EU are not eligible for this post due to restrictions on funding.
