  Nanoscale material discovery for thermoelectric energy harvesting and cooling
  Dr H Sadeghi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit electronic and vibrational properties of nanoscale materials that are 1000 times smaller than diameter of a human hair to discover new materials for energy harvesting and cooling in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and laptops.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Computational Design of Sustainable 2D Catalysts
  Dr M Sacchi
Application Deadline: 22 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysis is ubiquitous in chemistry and biology. Catalysts allows chemical transformations to proceed at a faster rate by lowering the overall energy demand for several energy-intensive chemical mechanism, such as those involving covalent bond breaking.

  Design principles for active solids
  Dr A Souslov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft materials surround us and compose us. Biological functions rely on active components embedded in soft biological matter. For example, muscles move because molecular motors convert chemical energy into work.
  Machine learning for inverse design of materials for skyrmionics
  Research Group: Computational Engineering and Design
  Dr O Hovorka
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Ondrej Hovorka. Co-supervisor Prof Hans Fangohr. Project description. Skyrmionics is emerging as one of the most significant areas in magnetism with prospects to shape the research over the next few decades.
  2D Material Heterostructures and novel Twistronic Devices
  Dr N D M Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining high performance and ultra-low power usage is the ultimate goal of materials technology for information processing. This research has led to whole new paradigms including “spintronics” and “valleytronics”.
  Electronic and phononic transport in highly heterogeneous nanomaterials and devices
  Dr N Neophytou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two thirds of all energy we use is lost into heat during conversion processes, a loss which puts enormous pressure on the planet, the use of fossil fuels, and energy sustainability.
  Finite temperature superfluid turbulence flow-structure interactions via immersed boundary methods
  Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a multidisciplinary research project that combines the quantum physics of superfluid turbulence flows with advanced computational fluid dynamics for flow-structure interactions.
  Computational Materials Design
  Prof W Wenzel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a Ph.D. student for the development of multiscale simulation methods to work in the recently funded excellence cluster at KIT.
  Beam-beam and crab cavity proton dynamics for the LHC luminosity upgrade
  Dr R Appleby
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD project, starting October 2020. The luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider will increase the delivered instantaneous luminosity by an order of magnitude to search for new, rare, particles and perform precision measurements of the standard model of particle physics.
