  Finite-speed Thouless pump
  Dr A Lazarides
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A recent area of significant progress in physics has been that of periodically-driven, many-body quantum systems, in which a number of phenomena which cannot be captured by the usual statistical mechanical framework have been predicted and observed.
  Fractal structures in multidimensional chemical reaction dynamics
  Dr T Bartsch
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In many chemical reactions the reaction rate is determined by the crossing of an energy barrier. In order to predict whether a reaction will occur, one must understand the dynamics of the crossing in as much detail as possible.
  Language and numerical cognition: Does the language that we conduct maths in affect our performance?
  Dr I Xenidou-Dervou
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many consider mathematics to be a universal language. Arabic numerals are indeed used widely throughout the world; however, number-naming systems vary significantly across languages.
