The Application Process: Applicants must demonstrate a first or upper second-class honours degree or an equivalent academic qualification, preferably in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, or Mathematics. An ability to program in either Fortran, C, or Python is desirable but not a prerequisite. All applications must be submitted before the deadline through the QUB online application portal: https://dap.qub.ac.uk/portal/user/u_login.php.
For further information and queries, please email Dr Lorenzo Stella (email@example.com).
The Environment: The ASC works in one of the most dynamical areas in the physical sciences – the theory and simulation of molecules, liquids, solids and materials at the level of the constituent electrons and nuclei. Students in our group emerge with forefront knowledge in the theoretical and computational methods involved. This project will harness a range of ASC themes, resulting in a qualification that is difficult to obtain otherwise, yet in high demand at the academia/industry interface.Funding notes: A fully-funded (fees and maintenance) studentship is available. Eligible candidates must be either UK or Republic of Ireland residents. EU citizens that satisfy a requirement of being ordinarily resident in the UK for the three years prior to the start of the studentship are also eligible. Further details of the eligibility criteria can be found here: http://go.qub.ac.uk/pgrfees. Potential candidates are strongly recommended verifying their eligibility before applying.
