A studentship is available in the area of Computational Science. The project will be a collaboration between UCL’s Department of Physics and Astronomy and Computer Science. The PhD will aim to:
1. Inverse problems such as developing highly accurate potential energy surfaces from high resolution spectroscopic data;
2. Determining uncertainties in computed cross sections for electron - molecule collisions;
3. An R-matrix approach to ultracold chemistry.
The project will contain a significant part of code deveopment and applicants should be interested in the use of computaitonal techniques for solving scientific problems.
Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Jonathan Tennyson ([email protected]
Applications will be assessed as they arrive; the studentship will start in 2015.
