PhD Opportunity: Synthesis of Novel Hybrid Nanomaterials with Macrocyclic Receptors for Host-guest Optical Sensing

Project Description Within the last two decades, hybrid nanomaterials have emerged as fundamental building blocks for modern technological and scientific research. In the field of optical sensor technology, constructing hierarchical composite materials of two or more nanostructured domain and implementing appropriate surface modification and molecular binding strategies are important steps needed to construct robust and accurate sensor systems exhibiting high sensitivity, excellent selectivity and rapid response. Supramolecular chemistry offers a wide range of macrocyclic synthetic receptors specifica...

PhD Opportunity: Creation of an Ontology of Terms for Forensic Science Data

Project Description Forensic Science is not a single discipline. It is the application of several disciplines to physical or digital evidence for use in court. The data generated for forensic use is made of many different types like: images of fingermarks, instrumental data (like spectroscopic data), or digital data taken from seized equipment. In addition, a piece of evidence can produce several outputs. For example, a fingermark will have an image associated with it and may also have had a DNA profile extracted from it.  In terms of managing, cataloguing and describing forensic evidential data ...
