Apply to the University of Liverpool studentship to get your PhD degree!
The University of Liverpool is a public university based in the city of Liverpool, England. Founded as a college in 1881, it gained its Royal Charter in 1903 with the ability to award degrees and is also known to be one of the six original ‘red brick’ civic universities. It comprises three faculties organised into 35 departments and schools. It is a founding member of the Russell Group, the N8 Group for research collaboration and the university management school is triple crown accredited.
Ten Nobel Prize winners are amongst its alumni and past faculty and the university offers more than 230 first degree courses across 103 subjects.
This studentship PhD position is funded by the Leverhulme Centre for Functional Materials Design at the University of Liverpool via the Leverhulme Trust. The centre aims to bring together chemical knowledge with state-of-the-art computer science and automated technologies to develop a new approach to revolutionize the design of functional materials at the atomic scale.
The research questions that the scholarship are going to consider within the current PhD project “Algorithmic techniques for energy landscape exploration of crystal structures” will be related to several areas of Theoretical Computer Science (e.g. Algorithms, Computational Models, Computational Complexity), Discrete Mathematics (e.g. Combinatorics on Graphs/Words, Computational Geometry) and motivated by challenging problems in Computational Chemistry (e.g. Crystal Structure Prediction).
