This course is aimed at mathematically talented students. You gain a solid foundation in the theoretical physics of materials and its application in simulations across different length and time scales to problems of technological importance.
The Department of Physics is leading an interdisciplinary Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Theory and Simulation of Materials. The Centre offers a four-year PhD, the first year of which leads to an MSc. Self-funded students may take the MSc by itself as a 12-month full-time course.
With strong links to industry, other leading academic institutions, and government labs in the UK and overseas, there are plenty of opportunities to engage with external organisations, including collaborative research projects.
Fully funded four-year studentships are available for UK and EU students ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the grant. This funding is for students intending to stay on for the four-year PhD only.
