18th November 2017 : PhDs in Soft Matter simulations at Bristol

Dear colleagues,
we currently have two PhD positions in Soft Matter theory and simulation
available at the School of Mathematics, the University of Bristol (UK).
The students will work under the supervision of Dr. John Russo on
understanding the thermodynamic and dynamic properties of materials with
tetrahedral interactions, such as water, silicon, and carbon. The
positions are funded through an ERC Starting Grant. Within the Institute
of Applied Mathematics, additional PhD positions are available to work
on related Soft Materials  topics under the supervision of Profs. Tannie
Liverpool, Andy Hogg and Jonathan Robbins and Drs. Diki Porter, Isaac
Chenchiah and Valeriy Slastikov so we encourage interested students to
express their interest too.

Applicants should have a good background in Physics, Chemistry, Applied
Mathematics or related subjects, and some experience in computer
programming is welcome, and are expected to start their PhD early in 2018.

The school of Mathematics offers a stimulating working environment,
alongside a structured supporting program.

Applications should be sent to:



Dr. John Russo
Lecturer in Applied Mathematics and Royal Society University Research Fellow
School of Mathematics, University of Bristol
