About the project
Applications are invited for a four-year PhD position in the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen's University Belfast (QUB). The student will work as part of a research project that aims to model irradiation of biological molecules in the presence of solvents and metal nanoparticles (MNPs). Such irradiation processes occur over a wide range of time and length scales and so a range of theoretical and computational approaches are required that bridge these different regimes. The team involved in this work have developed a range of techniques to do this and the goal of this project is to join these methods together into a unified approach.
Project 1: Stochastic quantum descriptions of correlations
Supervisors: Dr Daniel Dundas, Dr Myrta Gruening, Dr Lorenzo Stella
The first PhD student will implement stochastic methods for describing correlations beyond the standard mean-field description of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) in order to describe the initial energy absorption processes. As part of this work, the student will spend time in Toulouse with the group of Prof. Eric Suraud to learn about the stochastic methods in more detail.
The student will study photon irradiation of nucleobases and radiosensitiser molecules in the presence of solvents and MNPs.

Applicants must demonstrate a first or upper second-class honours degree or an equivalent academic qualification, preferably in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, or Mathematics.
All applications must be submitted before the deadline through the QUB online application portal: https://dap.qub.ac.uk/portal/user/u_login.php. Please state clearly in your application which project you are applying for.
The deadline for applications is 5 March 2021. Short-listed candidates will be contacted shortly after the deadline.
