Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in Gas Sensing to join the Materials Physics group led by Prof. Alan Dalton. The role is part of a major industrially-funded project which aims to develop liquid-processed 2D materials for a range of real-world applications. The candidate will undertake a research project aiming to develop 2D materials as gas sensors for selective parts-per-billion detection of gases including simulants of chemical warfare agents. Specifically, the candidate will contribute to research in liquid-phase exfoliation of 2D materials, printing of devices, chemical and electrical characterisation, and gas sensing measurements. The candidate will also contribute to wider research objectives in the group including development of materials for printed electronics, electrochemical devices and energy storage.

Please contact Prof. Alan Dalton at for informal enquiries.

The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics (STEMM) at Sussex.
