About the Project
The York theory group has a strong expertise in this domain of physics and plays a major active role in the international arena. The York-Lyon-Jyväskylä collaboration aims to build new-generation density functionals with improved spectroscopic properties. The overarching goal is to develop numerical simulations providing a robust and precise description of the large amount of data collected over the years of experimental studies.
The PhD student will contribute to group’s activity by exploring properties of nuclei in one of several research directions, such as, magnetic moments of odd nuclei, proton-neutron pairing correlations, or moments of inertia on the path to fission. Depending on student’s predisposition, the thesis may be more focused towards exploitation of existing tools, comparison with data, and collaboration with experimentalists or towards development of novel theoretical approaches. They will learn advanced methods of NDFT and employ existing high-performance-computing resources developed at York.
3 years tuition fees plus up to 3.5 years stipend (£15,285 for 2020/21) for UK students.
Students from EU countries other than the UK are generally eligible for a fees-only award.
Academic entry requirements: at least a class 2:1 MSc or MPhys degree in Physics.
