Specifically, the student will develop and apply techniques based on the density functional theory of classical fluids and integral equation theory to model these systems. This project is sponsored by AWE, a division of the MOD.
Candidates will have obtained at least a 2:1 in a highly numerate discipline, preferably physics or mathematics, prior to the start of the studentship, which commences September.
An interest in theory, particularly statistical mechanics and chemical physics, and computer programming would be a distinct advantage.
