Molecular dynamics simulation of nonlinear terahertz spectroscopies

Supervisor(s)

Contact Dr Arend G Dijkstra to discuss this project further informally.

Project description

Terahertz spectroscopy is currently under development as a new window on molecules and materials. In this project you will design molecular dynamics simulation strategies to model these experiments. For the first time, we will be able to simulate nonlinear terahertz spectroscopy and link simulation with experiment.

Entry requirements

Applications are invited from candidates with or expecting a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2:1), and/or a Master's degree in chemistry or relevant subject such as (but not limited to) physics and natural sciences.

If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University's minimum English Language requirements.

How to apply

Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information second that the PhD you wish to be considered for is 'Molecular dynamics simulation of nonlinear terahertz spectroscopies' as well as Dr Arend G Dijkstra as your proposed supervisor.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
