MSc Masters by Research (fully funded): Computer modelling of polymer stability

Course Description

Polymers play a vital role in many aspects of manufacturing, and their longevity and durability are paramount within critical-path applications. This project will employ computer modelling to characterise the kinetics of polymer instability with a view to predicting useful lifetimes of high-value polymer products. The ability to model these systems will deliver substantial and far reaching impact in terms of product design. The studentship is supported by OneSubsea, who develop integrated solutions, products, systems, and services for the subsea oil and gas market.

Lancaster University is consistently highly ranked (~top 10) in the UK university league tables and is in the top 1% of universities globally. It is located on a beautiful campus in the North West of England close to the stunning Lake District National Park.
You should have, or expect to have, a first or a good upper-second class degree or a good Masters degree (or equivalent) in chemical or physical sciences, coupled with a strong mathematical ability, an aptitude for computer programming, and excellent communications skills. Some experience of programming is desirable, though not essential.

Informal e-mail enquiries prior to making an application are welcome, in which case contact Prof. Jamshed Anwar (). Applications should be made via Lancaster University’s online application system (see http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/how-to-apply-for-postgraduate-study/ for details).

The project is available immediately and applications will be considered in the order that they are received and the position will be considered filled when a suitable candidate has been identified.

The Chemistry Department is committed to flexible working on an individual basis, welcome and embrace diversity, and are committed to the Athena SWAN principles.

Funding Notes
The studentship covers fees at the UK/EU rate plus the standard maintenance stipend (£14,296 for 2016/17). Overseas applications are welcome but would have to cover the difference in UK and overseas student fee.
