About the Project

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship for three years. The student will register for PhD at the University of Surrey. The main aim is to use atomic and molecular scale modelling based on density functional theory and molecular dynamics, to design cathode materials and electrolyte for Li-S batteries.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work with a multi-disciplinary supervisory team at University of Surrey, and collaborate with other university partners including UCL, Imperial College, University of Southampton, and University of Nottingham. The University of Surrey has been awarded a Gold award in the recent Teaching Excellence Framework and the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering (CPE) is the longest established chemical engineering department in the UK.

This is a three year project, commencing in January 2021.

Entry requirements:
Applicants must have a 2:1 equivalent Batchelor’s degree or above in chemistry, physics, materials science/engineering, and chemical engineering disciplines. Applicants must be willing to work with computer-based simulations.
IELTS Academic: 6.5 or above (or equivalent) with 6.0 in each individual category.

How to apply:
Applications must be sent through the PhD Chemical and Processing Engineering course page: Please clearly state the title of the studentship and the supervisor on the application. For any application enquiries, please contact Dr Qiong Cai [Email Address Removed].

Funding Notes

The successful applicant will receive a full studentship including tuition fees and living stipend. The student will receive a full living stipend of £15,000 per year over the 3-year duration of the project, according to the standard set by UK research councils.
