PhD Recruitment

University College London: Department of Chemistry – PhD Studentship

Computational Study of the Electronic Structure of High Temperature Superconductors

The project will use state-of-the-art computational techniques employing quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical (QM/MM)  techniques to model and predict the structures, energies and properties of charge carriers in oxide high temperature superconductors. The project involves a collaboration between UCL Department of Chemistry and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory. The student will be trained in modern electronic structure techniques and the use of high performance computing technology.

Start Date: 1st October 2023

Eligibility: This studentship is open to Home Candidates.

Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first class degree or a good 2.1 and/or an appropriate Master’s level qualification (or their equivalent).

Candidates in the first instance should send a cv to Prof R. Catlow
