We are pleased to offer this fully-funded PhD studentship, available in the Department of Mathematics at University of Sussex.
The research project addresses the mathematical analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations arising in electronic structure models of quantum chemistry and, in particular, models in the presence of an external magnetic field. The objective is to identity, explore and develop relevant links between the various variational methods, with a view to providing a more integrated approach to their use in nonlinear partial differential equations and initiating new areas of application within quantum chemistry, with possible use in numerical studies.
The PhD project will be under the supervision of Professor Michael Melgaard.
Type of award
£14057 per annum tax-free bursary and waiver of UK/EU fees each year for 3.5 years. Full-time study.
UK, Europe (Non-UK), International (Non-UK/EU)
At level(s): PG (research)
Candidates are encouraged to apply, or at least make an expression of interest, as early as possible. The award will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate can be found.
The last possible date we can receive applications is 01 September 2015.
Possible start dates are 17 September 2015, 01 February 2016.
This is a full-time studentship and the successful candidate will be able to devote their whole time to research. With agreement of the supervisor the student may take on a limited amount of teaching, for which additional payment will be made.
