PhD opportunity on smart additives, funded by EPSRC and the industry. This PhD focuses on smart additives for lubricants. Additives can modify the properties of a lubricant to extend its temperature range, or to improve its friction properties.
Applications are invited from self-funded candidates interested in completing a PhD starting in October 2019 in the group of Dr Arianna Fornili (https://afornililab.wordpress.com) in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London.
Project Description. We will develop novel theoretical frameworks  using machine learning approaches to address catalytic efficiency and to establish molecular design principles to key design problems for new bio-inspired nanocatalysts.
A Ph.D position is available in the research area of Strong-Field and Attosecond Science, in the group of Dr. Agapi Emmanouilidou in the division of AMOPP in Physics and Astronomy at University College London.
