Nature Communications – Associate or Senior Editor (Optical Physics)

Location: Nature Communications , London, Shanghai, Berlin, New York

Nature Research is the world’s leader in publishing high-quality research from across the natural sciences. Its journals include Nature, the Nature Research journals, the Nature Reviews journals and Nature Communications.

Nature Communications is the leading multidisciplinary Open Access journal, publishing high-quality scientific research. To help us to build on the success of this journal, we’re seeking a physicist who has a critical eye, a deep understanding of their subject and interests beyond, and who can think on their feet.

The Associate/Senior Editor role at Nature Communications is ideal for researchers who love science but feel that a career at the bench isn’t enough to sate your desire to learn more about the natural world and for those who enjoy reading papers outside their chosen area of research.

UCL PhD studentship in Physical Chemistry

Location: University College London

Using photoelectron spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry to explore the redox properties of organic molecules in aqueous solution

Application deadline: 31 January 2019

A fully funded (36 month) PhD studentship is available in UCL Chemistry to work on an interdisciplinary project in the groups of Professors Helen Fielding, Katherine Holt and Graham Worth involving liquid microjet photoelectron spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and quantum chemistry calculations. The aim of this project is to combine liquid microjet photoelectron spectroscopy measurements of ionization potentials and cyclic voltammetry measurements of the kinetics and reversibility of electron transfer to determine one-electron standard reduction potentials of the ground and electronically excited states of a range of organic molecules in aqueous solution. The measurements will complemented by  computational chemistry calculations. The student will gain experience of working on a multidisciplinary project and gain expertise in state-of-the-art spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry and computational chemistry.

The applicants should have, or expect to gain, at least a 2.1 honours degree, or equivalent, at Masters level in Chemistry, or a related physical science discipline. The successful applicant will have a strong interest in physical chemistry and have the ability to think analytically and creatively. An enquiring and rigorous approach to research as well as good team-working and communication skills (both presentation and written English) are essential.

UCL offers a world leading scientific environment in the heart of London.

Due to funding restrictions, only UK/EU students who meet the 3 years residency criteria are eligible for this studentship. The start date for the PhD is in late September 2019. The deadline for applications is 31 January 2019, although the position will be filled as soon as an appropriate candidate is found.

Applicants should send their applications (cover letter describing motivation for applying, CV and contact details for 2 referees) by email to Professor Helen Fielding, who may also be approached for informal enquiries.

Applicants will also be required to complete an electronic application form . Any admissions queries should be directed to the postgraduate administrator Dr Jadranka Butorac (
