Proposed Research Projects
We are happy to receive applications from people wishing to undertake a PhD. Full funding (stipend and tuition fees) would be available for a number of UK nationals or EU nationals (who have lived in the UK for over 3 years prior to their application, unless otherwise stated). The closing date is 5PM(GMT) on 22nd Februrary 2019. All research projects are subject to availability and due to commence in October 2019.
For further information, please contact the supervisors of the Projects listed below or Prof. M Paternostro
This project will be prioritised for funding.
- Attosecond Spin-Orbit Spectroscopy
- Supervisors: Dr. A. Brown; Prof H. van der Hart
Funding has already been secured for these two projects (No residency requirement for EU nationals).
- Development of many-body-theory methods for positron-atom interactions
- Supervisors: Dr D. Green; Dr G. Gribakin
- Many-body theory of positron interactions with molecules/condensed matter
- Supervisors: Dr D. Green; Dr G. Gribakin; Dr M. Grüning
The following projects are also available.
- Propagating Uncertainty in R-matrix calculations through to plasma diagnostics
- Supervisors: Dr C. Ballance; Dr C. Ramsbottom
- Heat transport in quantum devices
- Supervisors: Dr G. De Chiara
- Universal resources for quantum information processing
- Supervisors: Dr A. Ferraro; Prof M. Paternostro; Dr M. Paris (UniMi)
- Quantum-data analysis for quantum technologies
- Supervisors: Dr A. Ferraro; Prof M. Paternostro
- Quantum chaos in multicharged positive ions
- Supervisors: Dr G. Gribakin; Dr C. Ballance
- Positron binding and annihilation in molecules
- Supervisors:Dr G. Gribakin; Dr A. Swann; Dr D. Green
The school of Mathematics and Physics has a number of fully-funded studentships available to the UK students and EU students who have completed their undergraduate studies in the UK. Apart from these, a small amount of support is available through a Purser studentship.
Please note that we will not be able to accept applications that do not follow the required procedures/forms.
