Project Description

Applications are invited from exceptional candidates for a PhD studentship in condensed matter physics at King’s College London.



The research will focus on energy dissipation phenomena and transport in materials for energy conversion technologies, opto- and nano-electronics. The project will involve the use of state-of-the-art first-principles techniques to compute the electronic and vibrational properties of materials (including carriers’ relaxation times due to electron-phonon, phonon-phonon and carrier-defect interactions) as well as the development and use of computational approaches (within the Boltzmann transport framework and beyond) to simulate and predict transport and non-equilibrium phenomena in complex systems.


The successful candidate should have a degree in physics or material science.For further details contact Dr Nicola Bonini ([email protected]).

Prospective applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Funding Notes

stipend and fees for 3.5 years.
