The Materials and Engineering Research Institute (MERI) at Sheffield Hallam University is funding 2 Graduate Teaching Assistant PhD studentships on any topic in materials and engineering, physics and mathematics. This is a competitive process, whereby applications from students are made with the support of an academic at Sheffield Hallam. A short proposal of the work during the PhD is required and can be done in collaboration with the academic. Potential projects in the areas of computational magnetism are:
- Ultrafast spin dynamics in systems with emergent phenomena – involving a multiscale approach, combining first and second principles modeling.
- Low energy control of magnetism in complex magnetic materials – using a range of approaches to simulate the dynamics of advanced functional materials to find new materials and routes towards low energy devices.
Potential projects are not limited to those described above. If you have a specific project in mind or if you require more information on these potential projects, please get in touch by email.
The deadline for applications is 1st Febrary 2018, see this link for more details on the application process and eligibility criteria.
