Computational Study of the Electronic Structure of High Temperature Superconductors

Institute: University College London
Closing date: 1 September 2023

The project will use state-of-the-art computational techniques employing quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical (QM/MM)
techniques to model and predict the structures, energies and properties of charge carriers in oxide high temperature superconductors. The project involves a collaboration between UCL Department of Chemistry and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory. The student will be trained in modern electronic structure techniques and the use of high performance computing technology.

Starting date of 1st of October 2023.

The student will be paid the standard stipend for a London based student and fees for a UK student.
This studentship is open to Home Candidates. *University College London is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive environment for all.*

Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first class degree or a good 2.1 and/or an appropriate Master’s level qualification (or their equivalent).
