Applications are invited for full-time PhD studentship in the mathematical analysis of problems related to statistical mechanics and multi-scale modelling. The project will be supervised by Dr. Dimitrios Tsagkarogiannis. Studentships cover £13863 per annum tax-free bursary and waiver of UK/EU fees each year for 3.5 years. The application deadline is 31, August 2014.
Scholarship Description: The focus of this project is on the mathematical analysis of problems related to statistical mechanics and multi-scale modelling. The specific details of this project are negotiable between the supervisor and student any may cover areas such as mathematical problems of phase transitions and pattern formation, statistical mechanics for non-equilibrium systems, and analytical and computational methods of coarse-graining for interacting particle systems. Research may extend to related topics within the scope of statistical mechanics and multi-scale modelling.
Study: Studentships are provided in the field of mathematical analysis of problems related to statistical mechanics and multi-scale modelling.
Course Level: Studentships are available for pursuing postgraduate research degree level.
