  Chiral spin structures in antiferromagnet-ferromagnet bilayers
  Dr T A Moore
Application Deadline: 21 September 2019
Chiral twists in atomic magnetic structure are seen in ferromagnets at the interface with heavy metals such as Pt and Ir, leading to topologically stable magnetic domains known as skyrmions.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round
Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  Dynamics of complex magnets – non-colinear and frustrated antiferromagnets
  Dr J Barker
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019
Historically, antiferromagnets have been difficult to study and utilise as they do not couple strongly to external fields. Recent scientific advances have found new ways to directly control them, giving rise to the new field of antiferromagnetic spintronics.
  ISIS Beamline Facility Development Studentship: Opto-Electronic Control of Magnetism
  Dr O Cespedes, Prof S Langridge
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
This is a joint project to be carried out in collaboration between the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, a world-leading centre for research at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) near Oxford, and the University of Leeds.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round
Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Probing the molecular composition of planet-forming regions with ALMA
  Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, is a state-of-the-art telescope in Chile. It has the resolution and sensitivity to observe emission from dust and gas on size scales similar to that of the Solar System in nearby young exoplanet-forming systems.
  Quantum Computing Theory
  Dr D Jennings
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
We are currently in the middle of a "quantum space race" that is rapidly gaining momentum, and providing both technological and conceptual breakthroughs.
  Quantum dot superstructures
  Dr K Critchley
Applications accepted all year round
Wet chemical synthesis methods can produce semiconductors that consist of 100s to 10,000s of atoms – known as colloidal quantum dots.
  Quantum Many-Body Scars: developing a deeper understanding of quantum many-body scars as a new class of systems where ergodicity is weakly broken
  Research Group: Qunatum Information
  Dr Z Papic
Applications accepted all year round
In recent years, investigations of out-of-equilibrium phenomena in quantum many-particle systems have become one of the most active research areas in physics.
  Simulating the atmospheres of rocky exoplanets
  Prof D Marsh, Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
The current generation of exoplanet discovery missions has revealed the diversity of exoplanetary systems that include rocky worlds within the habitable zone of the host star.
