  Antimatter Chemistry: reactive scattering collisions of antihydrogen atoms with hydrogen molecules
  Dr M Law, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently interest in antimatter research has increased as facilities such as CERN have succeeded in trapping antimatter atoms to study their properties [1].
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
  Neuronal Dynamics from a complex network perspective
  Prof A Politi, Dr E Ullner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain is possibly the most intriguing complex system we know. The combination of experimental work and theoretical approaches has gained many insides in the last century but we are still far away from a real understanding.
  Statistical physics of DNA replication
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Romano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to apply statistical physics and probability theory to the problem of DNA replication in living cells.
  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
  Optical Fibre Lasers
  Dr K Nakkeeran, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical fibre lasers are widely used in many fields. In the recent past lots of research going on in optical fibre lasers for various applications.
  Optical Fibre Sensors
  Dr K Nakkeeran, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical fibre sensors are widely used in many fields. In the recent past lots of research going on in optical fibre sensors related to Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) and Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCF).
  Bio-inspired quantum-enhanced light harvesting (EPS2020/22)
  Dr E Gauger
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-inspired nanostructures are ideal candidates for quantum-engineered antennae. This project aims to identify ways of harnessing the interplay of quantum effects and dissipation to underpin next-generation technologies for light-harvesting.
