PhD studentship on high temperature superconductivity [closed]

Mar 8, 2023

A PhD position is available at University College London, supervised by Prof. Richard Catlow and Prof. Thomas Keal (co-supervisor, STFC Scientific Computing) for a project to study the electronic structure of high temperature superconductors using ChemShell. The position is funded by STFC’s Ada Lovelace Centre studentship programme and UCL.

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 student will be trained in modern electronic structure techniques and the use of high performance computing technology.

The deadline for applications is 1st September 2023, with a starting date of 1st October 2023.

The student will be paid the standard stipend for a London based student and fees for a UK student. The studentship is open to Home Candidates.

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).

For further information please contact Prof. R. Catlow ( To apply please send a CV to Prof. Catlow in the first instance.
