18th January 2018 : PhD positions – soft matter, fluids and materials theory – U. Bristol

Dear All,

We currently have several PhD positions in SoftMatter, Fluids and
Materials theory and simulation available in the Applied Mathematics
Group at the School of Mathematics, the University of Bristol (UK).
A wide variety of topics covering active matter, colloidal and molecular
glasses, fluid mechanics, colloidal gels and suspensions, solid
mechanics, polymeric fluids, liquid crystals, biological physics,
granular materials, geophyiscal fluid dynamics, and micro-magnetic
materials under the supervision of Profs. Tannie Liverpool, Jens Eggers,
Andy Hogg and Jonathan Robbins and Drs. John Russo, Diki Porter, Isaac
Chenchiah and Valeriy Slastikov.

Excellent undergraduates holding or expecting to gain a Bachelor’s
degree (or equivalent international qualification) with First Class
honours in a relevant discipline including mathematics, physics,
chemistry, engineering, materials science, biophysics, geophysical
sciences and computer science. A 2:1 (upper second class) honours degree
(or international equivalent) may be acceptable depending on the
candidate’s academic background, including e.g. strong performance
(predicted or achieved) in a Master’s degree.

Please bring this to the attention of suitable students.

Applications are now open. More information about how to apply can be
found on
