Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
  Physics behind the evolution of cell remodelling
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. Such cells are built out of physical compartments separated from each other by membrane boundaries.
  Physics of cutting and reshaping of cell membranes
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for highly motivated students to join our interdisciplinary team for an exciting project at the interface of physics, biology, and chemistry.
  Coarse-grained molecular dynamics and self-assembly of reacting proteins and chromatin
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof A Goryachev
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A project in computational modelling of reactive Brownian dynamics of DNA and proteins inside biological cells is available in the group of Prof.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Observing Nucleic Acid Aptamer Binding with Ultrafast 2D-IR Spectroscopy
  Prof N Hunt
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will be a collaboration with Prof Glenn Burley (University of Strathclyde). Background. The strong and specific binding of small molecules and proteins to DNA has relevance across many areas, from fundamental biophysics, through chemical biology to nanotechnology.
  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  Simulations of rheological properties of lubricants under operational conditions
  Prof C K Skylaris
Application Deadline: 26 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Chris-Kriton Skylaris. Co-supervisor Denis Kramer. Project description.
  The best of both worlds: studying ultrafast chemical processes using electron diffraction and computational methods
  Dr D A Wann
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The prospect of studying the time evolution of matter at an atomic level, on the same timescale as bonds are made and broken, is extremely tantalising.
  Internal Reflection Infrared Spectroscopy of Multiphase Mixtures
  Prof C Bain
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the quantitative analysis of attenuated internal reflection infrared spectra (ATR-IR) of multiphase mixtures, such as emulsions and suspensions.
  Computational Materials Design
  Prof W Wenzel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a Ph.D. student for the development of multiscale simulation methods to work in the recently funded excellence cluster at KIT.
  Modelling photosynthetic water oxidation
  Dr P O'Malley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims use molecular modelling methods and spectroscopy to understand how the protein environment of electron transfer cofactors in photosysnthesis and in particular how the water oxidising complex, facilitates electron transfer and also helps stabilise these radical species to maintain a charge separated state.
  Computation and Confirmation Experiments on Solvated Hydrogen Bonding Complexes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The creation of complexes between polymeric compounds drives many industrial / biological processes and has been extensively studied in well-defined biological compounds with uniform structures.
  Teaching a machine to move atoms
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr A Sweetman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is now routine in world leading laboratories to perform experiments where single atoms can be placed with atomic precision. These experiments are performed using scanning probe microscopes, and allow us to study the electrical and chemical properties of matter with sub-molecular, and even “sub-atomic” precision.
