Manipulation of the Polarization in Ultrathin Ferroelectrics

Project Description. In this project you will investigate the properties of ultrathin films of a variety of ferroelectric materials of interest to the microelectronic industry and find strategies to control the magnitude and direction of the ferroelectric polarization. Read more

Physics-based Multi-scale Modelling of Multi-Material Additive Manufacturing

Project Details. Additive manufacturing (AM) is emerging as a promising alternative for designing multi-material parts for complex geometries in engineering applications; especially in the biomedical sector. Read more

Machine learning assisted optimization techniques for fitting excitonic spin-orbit models to big data

A PhD studentship is available in the group of Chris Stock (School of Physics and Astronomy, The University of Edinburgh in collaboration with Russell Ewings (STFC-ISIS) and Bo Liu (University of Glasgow School of Electrical Engineering). Read more

PhD position (f/m/d): Large-scale weather effects in wind farm simulations

Are you intrigued by the complexities of fluid mechanics, turbulence, and the unexplored potential of high-performance computing? We present an exceptional PhD opportunity for individuals dedicated to pioneering the development of wind farm simulations. Read more

Spatial Effects in High-Power Fibre Lasers and Amplifiers

Supervisory Team: Dr Peter Horak, Prof Michalis Zervas . Project Description. We are looking for a PhD student to work on the design and numerical simulation of the next generation of high-power fibre lasers. Read more

Data-driven optimal prediction of bacteria growth

This project is devoted to an AI-based prediction of bacteria growth and its control by antibiotics. In synthetic biology, an improved understanding of bacterial regulatory circuits is required to develop complex biological systems with functionalities beyond existing in nature [1, 2]. Read more

FLASH VHEE Radiotherapy Machine System Design

A studentship is available from October 2024 on the development of a unique machine to deliver FLASH radiotherapy. To achieve this goal we anticipate strong collaboration with STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory and CERN. Read more

Thermally driven flows in solidification processes

PROJECT SUMMARY (a short summary - max 40 words). With this project, we propose a numerical investigation into a variety of dynamics and effects produced by the interaction of an advancing solidification front with thermally-driven convection in the melt. Read more

Computational Framework for Sustainable Materials, Manufacturing, Energy, and AI Driven Simulations

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Quantum Computing platform with atomic qubits

Quantum computing offers efficient implementation of an important class of algorithms for which their classical counterparts suffer from an exponential growth of computational costs with system size. Read more

Computational Design of Small Molecules to Prevent the Early Formation of Multispecies Biofilms

We are recruiting for a 3.5 year PhD project on “Computational Design of Small Molecules to Prevent the Early Formation of Multispecies Biofilms”.  The project is part-funded by Penrhos Bio ( and will be based in the newly formed Strathclyde Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Molecular Exploration, Discovery and Development (AIMED2).
